Program Director Instructions — Procedures for Registration Eligibility Submissions

Student Exit Packet


At the conclusion of your program, you will provide your graduates with forms that are to be completed and returned to you so you can initiate the eligibility application process with CDR. Components of this packet will be necessary in order for you to submit your students for registration eligibility in the Registration Eligibility Processing System (REPS).

   
 

Registration Eligibility Processing System (REPS)

Once your students have completed all of your program requirements, you will submit their information into REPS. Please refer to the REPS Program Director Guide or REPS Quick Start Guide for instructions on using REPS and submitting students for registration eligibility.

Inquiries related to registration eligibility and using REPS can be emailed to cdrexams@eatright.org.

   

Timeline


The normal processing time for a candidate submission is a week. You will receive an email confirmation when your class has been approved. Your students will receive an Authorization to Test email from CDR’s testing vendor Pearson VUE within 48 hours of class approval. This email contains authorization dates (an initial year), a link to the Handbook for Candidates—for RDs and for DTRsand information on setting up an account on Pearson VUE’s website to schedule their examination.
