LaGCC follows an enhanced semester system consisting of:
The DTP is designed for students to attend classes as full time, day students for each semester in a two-year period once they have been accepted into the clinical phase of the program. All DTP majors are required to meet with a DTP faculty advisor when planning their class schedules. If a student makes course selections incorrectly, his/her graduation may be delayed.
The academic calendar is published in the LaGCC Catalog and on the LaGCC website at www.lagcc.cuny.edu under the Academic menu. Calendars include Holidays and vacations. In addition, students may reference individual course syllabi and outlines.
The Dietetic Technician Program is divided into two distinct phases:
Formal advisement for DTP majors takes place twice a year—in April / May/ June for Fall I and II, and in November / December / January for Spring I and II. In addition DTP faculty members are available to meet with students during office hours and by appointment. The schedule of advisement dates is made available to students in the following ways: it is published and distributed by the Office of Academic Advisement, posted on a student’s MyLaGuardia web page, distributed to students by DTP faculty, and announced at the Food & Nutrition Club meetings. It is the responsibility of the students to check the schedule for advisement dates.
