Meredith College Enters Partnership With North Carolina State University

Meredith College, a liberal arts educational institution for women in Raleigh, North Carolina, has entered into an agreement with North Carolina State University that provides priority admission into Meredith’s master’s degree in nutrition–accelerated dietitian nutritionist track to up to four qualified North Carolina State nutrition science undergraduate students.

As of January 1, 2024, a master’s degree is required to become a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN), meaning nutrition science undergraduate students at North carolina State who want to earn their RDN credential must enter an accredited graduate program to continue toward that goal.

“With the longstanding relationship between Meredith College and North Carolina State, the close proximity of both campuses, as well as the high quality of undergraduate students that graduate from the nutrition sciences program, it made sense that we form this agreement that would benefit both institutions and their students,” said Meredith College assistant professor of food and nutrition Coleman Hale.

“Since NC State does not offer an accredited master’s program, this ensures that their students have a pathway forward to a competitive master of science in nutrition program that is well established and respected in the community,” Dr. Hale said. “Additionally, the priority admission lets four of their students know quite early that they have been accepted and allows them to move forward with making their graduate school decisions.”
