The University of Houston Dietetic Internship participates in the pre-select option to computer matching for students receiving verification statements from UH DPD.


In the pre-selection process, the program will select students who have met the admission requirements for the DI. The applicant will be notified confirming his/her acceptance status in the program.


If pre-selected, the applicant's name and social security number are submitted to D&D Digital Systems, Inc. to ensure that the applicant will not participate in the computer match. If the applicant is not selected through the pre-select process, he/she may apply to any DI including UHDI through the computer matching process.
