Due to COVID-19 restrictions in the hospital departments, the requirement of at least eight (8) hours of observation has been waived by the Radiologic Sciences and Therapy Division. If a clinical site will allow students to observe, the Radiologic Sciences and Therapy Division suggests that you complete observation hours and upload them with your application, as well as completing the module listed below. Please see the Admission Criteria below for specific instructions for obtaining in person hours.
In lieu of observation hours, the Radiologic Sciences and Therapy division is requiring applicants to complete the American Society of Radiologic Technology R.T.101 - Introduction to Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy Modalities. At the completion of the module, print out a certificate of completion with your name and the date you viewed the module. The certificate of completion should be uploaded into your application.
All students interested in the AS to BS Degree Completion program should submit all application materials no later than February 15, 2021 for consideration for autumn 2021 admission. Radiologic Science professionals who already hold a certificate or associate degree and are certified by the ARRT, NMTCB or ARDMS are eligible to apply to this program. Applicants are required to meet all Application Criteria and follow the Application Procedures.
