Schedule an Appointment

1. Online Forms

Fill out the Nutrition Questionnaire and Informed Consent before you schedule an appointment. This must be completed at least 24 hours in advance to be seen for your appointment. 

2. Handouts

Complete the 2 Day Food Record and Five Food Groups handouts found in the right side bar and bring both documents to your nutrition appointment. These will be used in the appointment to discover what nutrients you're getting or missing, and to explore meal and snack ideas. 

3. Schedule a Session

The first session is 60 minutes and includes a nutrition assessment, education and goal setting. Follow-up appointments are also available in 30 minute sessions for those who have completed a first session. 

**Nutrition coaching is currently experiencing an extended wait-time due to the high demand for appointments. Please note:

  • Continue to check the calendar for availability since cancellations occur throughout the semester. 
  • More appointments will be added towards the beginning (second week) of November.
  • If you need immediate attention, please contact the Nutrition Coordinator for resources and referrals.

For students who have general health concerns (e.g., weight management, food allergies, event training, hypothyroidism):

  • Select this link if it's your first time using nutrition coaching: 1st session – general
  • Select this link to schedule a follow-up appointment and use the drop-down menu at the top of the page by "show availabilities for" to select your coach (if your coach is no longer listed, select Janele Bayless): Follow-up session - general

For students who have concerns about or were referred for disordered eating (e.g., eat <1200 calories per day, fast or skip meals, overexercise, laxative use):

Important Note:

  • If you have difficulty finding a day and time for your appointment, email the Nutrition Coordinator for nutrition coaching. 
  • With the high demand for nutrition appointments, schedule one appointment at a time.
  • The scheduling system is intended for appointments only; email the Nutrition Coordinator if you would like to schedule a meeting.

If interested in a Skype appointment, complete the online nutrition questionnaire and informed consent, food record and five food groups handout, and email the Nutrition Coordinator to arrange an appointment.
