For the Cedar Crest College Dietetic Internship, you must submit 3 references:
NOTE: Personal references will not be accepted. Faculty references must come from faculty who worked with you as an instructor. For example, if you worked with a faculty member as a TA in his/her class but never took a class with that instructor, the faculty member could write a work reference for you but should not submit a faculty reference. The faculty references must have taught you in class, so they are able to address your skills as a student.
