Radiography Admission Requirements 
For a detailed explanation of the program's admission requirements and application process, download the Radiography Program Application Packet.

Admission Requirement Summary
  • High school graduate or GED
  • Cumulative college GPA of 2.0 or above
  • GPA of 2.5 or above in the following core courses with a grade of "C" or above earned in each course:

BIO-1221         Anatomy and Physiology for Medical Imaging
ENG-1010        College Composition I
DMS-1351       Patient Care Skills
MATH-1270     Intermediate Algebra
MA-1020          Medical Terminology I
PSY-1010        General Psychology

Core courses may be repeated only once to improve a grade below "C."

Core courses must be taken for a traditional letter grade.  The pass/no pass option for core and program courses will not be accepted.

There is no time limit on core courses.  However, applicants are advised that they will be held accountable for the content of core courses when they begin the program.  Applicants are strongly advised to review math and skeletal anatomy prior to beginning the program.

BIO-2331 and BIO-2341 together may substitute for BIO 1221.

DMS-1351 is a program admission requirement effective Fall 2012 semester.  Students applying to the program on or after the start of the Fall 2012 semester (August 27, 2012) must complete DMS-1351.  The DMS-1351 requirement will be waived for students formally accepted into the program prior to Fall 2012.

MATH-1270 or higher is a program admission requirement effective Fall 2013 semester.  Students applying to the program on or after the start of the Fall 2013 semester (August 26, 2013) must complete MATH-1270.  MATH-1200 will be accepted as a substitute for MATH-1270 for students who completed the math requirement prior to the Fall 2013 semester.

  • Mandatory Program Information Session.  Students beginning the program in the fall 2015 semester or later will be required to attend a Radiography Information Session prior to entering the program.  Attendance at an information session does NOT need to be completed prior to applying but must be completed prior to program entry.  Sessions are held each semester and are posted on this webpage.  Students are encouraged to bring a support person.  Students must sign in to document their attendance and attend the entire session.
  • Non-native speakers of English must complete the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a minimum internet based test score (iBT) of 24 in the speaking component and a minimum iBT score of 22 in the listening component.  Refer to the Radiography Program Application Packet for additional information. 
  • Acceptable background check results

It is very important that applicants understand that the College's determination of acceptable background check results for the purpose of admission to the educational program does NOT guarantee a similar determination by other entities (i.e. clinical affiliates, professional certifying organizations [i.e. American Registry of Radiologic Technologists] and/or future employers).  Students with a history of prior conviction should be prepared and will be required to comply with the requirements of clinical and accrediting agencies throughout the course of their educational program and career.
