Step 2: Academic Upgrade

If the College of Dietitians of Manitoba (the College) reviews your IEP Application and determines that you do not meet the academic requirements and your degree is NOT equivalent to a Canadian degree in human nutritional sciences, the College will instruct you to update your academics:   

  • The College will instruct you to take specific courses in human nutritional sciences
  • You must complete the courses with a minimum mark of 70% (Grade level B)
  • You must ask your academic institution to send your transcripts directly to the College
  • The College will contact you by mail to inform you of the results
