Application Process to the Graduate School
Students interested in applying for the M.S. or Ph.D. programs in Nutrition and Exercise Sciences can follow the link below to complete the online application for graduate school. The programs do not have separate applications and do not require the GRE for admission. Once a student’s Graduate School application is complete, the Graduate School will forward this information to the Nutrition or Exercise Sciences Program Director. One important note is that it will be important that students select either the exercise science or nutrition science specialization, as this information will allow us to make appropriate advising decisions.
The following key materials are required by the Graduate School:
- Online application
- Application Fee of $35.00
- Official Transcript(s) – current at time of application.
If students have not completed a Bachelor’s degree at the time of application, an official copy after the degree is complete is required.
Students interested in applying for graduate assistantships should contact Lee Weidauer at Lee.Weidauer@sdstate.edu. For graduate assistantships, a letter of interest, current resume/cv and a list of 3 references will be required.
