Stipend and Financial Aid:

The University has a Financial Aid office to assist students with financial aid (loans and scholarships). Students in the program are eligible for loans from the Guaranteed Student Loan Program. Students are also eligible to apply for Department graduate assistantships and College scholarships which are awarded on a competitive basis.

Insurance requirements:

Students are required to purchase health insurance (or provide evidence of existing coverage). The University will cover professional liability insurance. Students may be covered by Worker's Compensation as authorized volunteers of the University while at assigned off-campus sites, but not while traveling to and from assigned sites. It is suggested that students purchase comprehensive automobile insurance coverage since Workman's Compensation does not cover the student for accidents which occur during the commute to and from the supervised practice site.

Credit for prior learning:

Credit for prior learning (didactic only) will be given to students who complete an accredited DP program. This credit will be limited to Food Service Management, Purchasing and Food Selection and Preparation.
