Program Pathways

Our program wants to help you meet your educational and professional goals. There are many ways you can enter into our program. The first step is identifying whether you will be applying to our program through our preselect or spring match application process. The preselect application process is open to you if you currently work for Aramark or an Aramark manager. If this does not describe you, then you will participate in the spring match. 


As you figure out which application process fits your situation, you will want to ask yourself the following questions to identify the program pathway that works best for you. 

  • Do you want to start your MS in Human Nutrition degree?

  • Do you already have a MS degree?

  • Have you completed some graduate coursework?

Accepting the Offer

Preselect applicants will be sent an email confirming an internship placement by February 1. If you apply through the match process, you will know of your internship placement on Match Day through the D&D Digital website. With both the preselect and D&D match process, you will need to email us at to accept the offer to be a part of our internship program. Your name, acceptance confirmation, and preferred contact information should be included in your email. Our program director will reply to your email to confirm receipt. Our program is under no obligation to hold your position if your email is not received by the designated date.

Second Round Process

If you applied to the Aramark Dietetic Internship program, but did not match to another internship program, you will be given first priority for any Aramark positions not filled during the first round match.  In the event slots are still open, the Aramark internship will open the availability in DICAS to take additional applications for the second round. Applications should meet the internship criteria with a recorded interview link attached. DICAS will be closed when all positions are filled.

Program Completion

Our dietetic internship is part of your route to meeting the eligibility requirements for the Registration Exam for Dietitians set by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). After successful completion of a Didactic Program in Dietetics and receipt of your baccalaureate degree, your next step will be to complete the practice and learning experiences associated with a dietetic internship. All program graduates will receive a certificate and verification statement once competencies have been fulfilled, indicating eligibility to sit for the RD Exam. The dietetic internship will also meet the requirements for state licensure or certification mandatory for practice in most states.
