Illinois State's preferred filing period for fall transfer students is September 1-January 15. For the spring semester, the preferred filing period is from April 1-August 1. You are encouraged to apply early in the preferred filing period for best consideration for admission into competitive majors. Visit the Office of Admissions to apply today!

Minimum GPA Requirement

3.00 for Dietetics; 2.50 for Food and Nutrition Management. Admission to the Dietetics option is highly competitive. Meeting the minimum GPA requirement does not guarantee admission into the program. Admission decisions are based not only on the cumulative GPA of the applicant, but on the quality of the overall pool of applications, and the number of seats available in the department for new students. Students will receive a decision letter regarding their application either before or during advanced registration.
