Since the MS in Nutrition is a degree awarded by the School of Graduate Studies, prospective students must apply online through Slate (again via the School of Graduate Studies), pay the fee and submit the letters of recommendation. We welcome interested applicants to visit to attend a class, meet with our professors, current students and tour CWRU.
Accepted students will have to mail their official transcripts to the School of Graduate Studies. Students who matriculate are eligible to receive a credit toward their tuition in the amount of the application fee.
For more information or to schedule a visit, contact the Department of Nutrition:
Students interested in earning a PhD in Nutrition may enter the program through three mechanisms:
- Apply for admission to the BSTP program at Case Western Reserve University with Nutrition as your Priority Program of Interest (or PPI). The School of Graduate Studies processes the application and includes a nonrefundable application fee. Priority will be given to applications received by December 1. We will continue to review applications received after the priority deadline, but not beyond the final application deadline of January 15. Your application will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee as soon as it is complete.
Please note that our program has limited financial resources for supporting students who are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
- Application for the PhD in Nutrition program as a result of acceptance into the Medical Sciences Training Program (MSTP). The MSTP program is a highly selective combined MD/PhD program. Students in the MSTP Program take PhD course work in conjunction with MD course work. The MSTP students have 20 different PhD programs available to them including Nutrition. Upon completion of their PhD course work, the students will work full time on their PhD and then upon completion of the PhD return to traditional medical school to complete their MD. Admissions Information
- Application for direct admission to the program can be done through the School of Graduate Studies. The deadline to apply is June 1. Applications will be evaluated beginning January 1st with applicants being accepted on a rolling basis. Apply online through Slate as a direct admit nutrition student.
Case Western Reserve students graduate with a top-tier education, and that's just the beginning.
That's because every aspect of the CWRU journey—from hands-on learning to housing; study abroad to student activities—is deliberately designed to help students reach their full potential as scholars, professionals and members of society.
Our students graduate with more than a degree. They have an extra edge that makes a big difference to potential employers and graduate programs.
Sound like a place you want to be? We hope so!
