Radiologic Technology Application

 

Selection

No applicant will be considered unless the minimum admission requirements are met. Admission requirements are evaluated by the use of a rating scale (see sample rating scale), which includes ACT scores, GPA, entrance test scores, previous degrees awarded, healthcare background/experience, and performance on core courses.  All applicants are considered on a competitive basis. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission into the program. The number of applicants accepted is limited due to the nature of the program.

All applicants will be notified by letter of their conditional acceptance or non-acceptance to the program. If an applicant is selected for the program, they will receive a conditional acceptance letter with specific instructions regarding all requirements that must be completed prior to August admission. These requirements are listed below:

  • Completion of Anatomy & Physiology I (BIO 2513/2511) and Anatomy & Physiology II (BIO 2523/2521) with a grade of "C" or better during the summer session or regular session prior to the admission to the RT program.
