Students interested in the Dietary Manager program must meet basic competencies in reading, writing and math as listed above, as well as hold a high school diploma or its equivalent. Once students have met these requirements, admission is based on a first-come, first-served basis (a wait list will be formed to allow for potential cancellations). Students may begin Dietary Manager classes at the start of any term. Current COCC students may enroll through the early registration process, with new students enrolling through the standard admission process for new COCC applicants. New students should contact Enrollment Services - Admissions (383-7500) as soon as possible for additional information.

Admitted students will be assigned a program advisor to assist with advising and registration. Current students who have taken the placement test must be assigned a program advisor prior to program admission. Any previous transcripts should be forwarded directly to Enrollment Services - Admissions with a request for evaluation prior to the advising session.

Prior to the start of classes, admitted students must have a food handlers card, a hepatitis immunization and a T.B. test.
