The application process for admissions to the Nutrition and Foods Science major is open to all students that meet the eligibility requirements and prerequisites (see below). Please see the application steps below.
-Admission to the program occurs once a year, in the Fall semester.
-Official transcripts of all high school and previous colleges (if applicable) are required
-TOEFL is required if undergraduate degree is from a country where the official language is a language other than English
-Proof of Immunization is required. You can download the form at http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/studentservices/wellness/health-services-sub/healthservices-immunization. A copy of a non-Hunter form confirming the required immunization is acceptable (WHO card, employer form, or form submitted to another college.) The form is not required of CUNY students if it was previously submitted to Hunter College.
1. By February 1, 2013 : All applicants, including current Hunter College students , must file an Undergraduate Transfer Application online at: http://www.cuny.edu/admissions/undergraduate/prepare/transfer.html
2. All official transcripts and supporting documents must be sent directly to:
University Application Processing Center
PO Box 359023
Brooklyn, NY 11235-9023
*The application fee is waived for currently registered degree or non-degree CUNY students. The fee for official CUNY transcripts is also waived for current CUNY students.
-Non-Hunter applicants who have not yet met all nutrition prerequisite requirements and who wish to complete the requirements at Hunter should declare an alternative major, such as liberal arts and science, on the Transfer Application.
-An additional Transfer Application will need to be completed during the last semester of the prerequisites in order to officially apply to the NFS BS major.
-An overall GPA of 2.8 is required for consideration. It is a combined grade point average from all post-secondary institutions attended. Because of the competitive nature of the applicant pool and the small size of the incoming class, the admission process may favor applicants with an overall GPA greater than 2.8. Students who have completed 30 credits at Hunter College or at another City University institution at the time of application will be given priority in the selection process.
-Applications that arrive after February 1 will be considered on a space availability basis.
-CUNY students with an earned AA or AS degree do not need to fulfill the Hunter GER (General Education Requirements) but must have fulfilled the other course prerequisites required for the NFS major before applying. Transfer students who have not earned a degree, or who have earned an Associate's from a non-CUNY institution are required to complete the Hunter GER requirements in order to graduate.
-Those with completed applications by the deadline date can expect to be notified no later than May 1. -Students planning to apply for admission should attend a group information session for prospective students held every October and February. For additional information contact Dr. Khursheed Navder, Ph.D., R.D. or email@example.com.
