- Be sure to ask your reference providers well in advance. A written request along with a copy of your resume is appreciated. You should ask them by December 1.
- Your references will receive a message from DICAS asking them to complete your reference on-line.
- Some programs will require a specific person for your reference. Be sure to note that before you select your references since DICAS will only allow you to submit three references.
- It is wise to consider a reference that would be aware of your preparation in either nutrition or medical nutrition therapy; a reference from food science or food service; and an employer. Often students have found it useful to have a coach rather than an employer if they were more active in sports than employment.
