Finding the Best Dietetics & Clinical Nutrition Services School for You

Dietetics & Clinical Nutrition Services is the #20 most popular major in the country with 5,877 degrees and certificates awarded in 2018-2019.

There are so many healthcare programs in today's world that it can tough to figure out which one is the right one for you. As online education oppotunities continue to grow, you're not restricted to just schools in your local area anymore. Even some of the 'big name' schools are offering online courses. Also, there are a number of trade schools with offerings that you might find attractive.

To help you arm yourself with the information you need to make your decision, Healthcare Degree Search has developed this Best Value Dietetics & Clinical Nutrition Services Schools ranking. This report analyzed 191 schools in the United States to see which ones offered the best value programs for nutrition students. The goal was to highlight schools with more affordable prices than others offering similar quality experiences.

This ranking is not just a list of inexpensive schools. We also consider each school's quality, since we believe a low-quality school may not be a 'bargain' at any price. More specifically, we discount our quality score by the published tuition and fees charged by a school. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The value is determined by how much quality your dollar buys.

For nationwide and regional rankings, we use out-of-state tuition and fees in our calculations. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
