Students can indicate preference for location upon admission. Upon graduation students are eligible to sit for the RDN examNo verification statement required to apply. GRE scores are required (unless students meet waiver eligibility). Applicants will apply directly through the Penn State Graduate School online application, and interviews will be conducted with eligible applicants.
