Computer Matching

The Master of Science/Dietetic Internship Program at Frances Stern Nutrition Center / Tufts University participates in the Computer Matching Program sponsored by the American Dietetic Association. All applicants must also participate in the Computer Matching Program, otherwise their application will not be considered. Applicants should request instructions, and a mark/sense card to prioritize their Dietetic Internship preferences, from any ADA-approved Didactic Program in Dietetics or from D&D Digital Systems. This request should be made to allow turnaround time for submission by the February 15 postmark deadline of the year of desired matriculation. There is no charge for this material. However, there is a $50.00 charge for computer matching that is due with the applicants prioritized ranking. Address requests to:
