Completing the Online Application

DICAS Online Application: Register with DICAS and complete the online application. DICAS is the Dietetic Internship Centralized Application System (DICAS) which is used by most internships. The program may be accessed at

Reference Letters: When completing the online application form, applicants must include the name and contact information (specifically an e-mail address) for each reference. This will trigger an e-mail message requesting completion of a reference form. The form will be completed on-line. Students submitting more than one application will need to use the same individuals as references for each application. 

Personal Statement: Applicants who apply to internships using DICAS will be asked to complete a personal statement. Content may include personal or professional goals, interests, experience, strengths, motivation or other topics deemed relevant to the selection process.

UHDI puts emphasis on work experience and would like to know about ALL work experiences that you consider relevant to your application for internship. Please feel free to include that information either on the form or in your personal statement. The program gives preference to candidates with DPD professional GPA of 3.4 and higher, DPD science GPA of 2.8 and higher, and overall GPA of 3.0 and higher.

Transcripts: Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended should be sent to DICAS.

Verification Statement: All applicants must include an original signed verification statement from an accredited Didactic Program in Dietetics indicating that all required coursework has been completed. Students currently enrolled in classes must submit a "Declaration of Intent" listing courses in progress. Successful applicants must supply signed verification statements and final transcripts to UHDI prior to the start of the internship.

DICAS allows your DPD director to login and submit the verification statement or declaration of intent through their system. Please verify with your DPD director that they have done so.

Resume: A current summary of your academic, employment and professional activities. Please include your email address.

Mail in additional UH documents
