International Application Process

The UHDI is a diverse program, and we are proud to have interns coming from all backgrounds. International students are encouraged to apply to our program; however, we do advise students to make the necessary inquiries about obtaining visas for the period of the internship before applying to the program.

The UHDI is a separate program from the University of Houston didactic program in dietetics (DPD) and cannot provide visas to accepted interns as the internship itself is a certificate program that does not lead to a degree. The UHDI takes no responsibility for the interns towards maintaining legal status in the US. The interns are not enrolled as UH students and hence the University does not provide F-1 (student) visas.

Please check the State department website to learn more about the various categories of visas available.
