How to Apply

Application Materials

The Program in Nutrition has rolling admissions, which means that the Nutrition faculty review applications throughout the year. However, preference in scholarship awards will go to prospective students whose applications arrive during the initial months of each calendar year.

To be considered for admission to the Program in Nutrition, applicants must submit the following through the Admissions application:

  • Application document
  • Official undergraduate transcript
  • Official transcripts that confirm completion of at least five of the seven or eight master's prerequisite courses. If admitted to the Program in Nutrition, the outstanding master's prerequisites must be successfully completed prior to beginning the master’s program. Please note that the following master's prerequisites must be completed within roughly five years of beginning the master’s program: introductory nutrition, biochemistry, and human physiology. (Basic statistics, general chemistry with lab, organic chemistry with lab, and microbiology can be older than five years.)
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Personal essay
  • Resume
  • Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores on the general exam (or equivalent).

You are eligible to submit an application after successfully completing at least five of the master’s prerequisite courses. The application will be processed and forwarded for review to the Nutrition faculty after all application materials (listed above) are submitted to the Office of Admission.

Each application is reviewed within a few weeks of the Nutrition faculty receiving the application from the Teachers College Office of Admission. Prospective students will receive notification of their admission status from the Office of Admission.

If you have questions about your submitted application, please contact Admissions at 212-678-3710.
