The following is a list of schools that offer online Dietitian programs.

The Top Dietitian Schools in the United States

The best dietitian schools will prepare their students for a career in dietetics by offering training and hands-on experience. There are two types of programs that the American Dietetic Association (ADA) approves as a course of study:

  • Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) focuses on academics, after which the student must complete an internship in order to take the necessary exams to become a registered dietician
  • Coordinated Program of Dietetics (CPD) incorporates the internship into the course of study, and provides the student with sufficient clinical hours to take exams

There are hundreds of dietitian programs across the United States, but here are a few that stand out.
