The Human Nutrition Program is licensed and accredited by the Connecticut Board of Governors for Higher Education and the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education, New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

Accreditation by The American Dietetic Association is not required, since the Master of Science program is NOT a dietetics training program.

It does not include the 900 hours of clinical training required for eligibility to take the registration examination for the R.D. credential.
