BS Two-Year Transfer Degree Plan

Sample schedule

The Dietetics program at Missouri State provides two plans for transfer students to follow. Both require the student to complete the Missouri State University General Education requirements, which can be done by earning an associate's degree or completing a 43-hour block. If you do not meet the necessary requirements for the two transfer plans, you can work with an advisor to create a plan of study based on the courses that you have completed. Sample schedules do not take the place of a consultation with your advisor or an advisor from the dietetics program.

The sample schedule below is for the transfer student who has an associate’s degree or a completed general education block at another university and has completed the following courses with a C grade or better:

  • BMS 240 (Intro to Nutrition)
  • CHM 200 (Organic Chemistry)
  • ECO 155
  • SOC 150
  • AGR 100
  • PSY 121
  • BIO 210 (Microbiology)

A list of course offerings is located on the course rotation page.

The following degree plan is based on the general education program instituted in fall 2014. For the previous general education requirements, please access these Student Transition Resources.
