Criteria for Program Selection

Students begin the Radiography Program in August of each year. A total of 77 credits must be completed for this degree. The required general education courses are an important part of the program. Since admissions are highly competitive and enrollment is limited, it is strongly recommended that these general education courses be completed before applying to the program as this will improve your chances of being admitted, although taking these courses in advance does not guarantee admission.  Meeting the admissions requirements does not guarantee program acceptance. For this reason, the following criteria are used to determine which applicants will be admitted: (Please note that there is no waiting list).

      1. Associate degree program Grade Point Average (GPA)
      2. The grade earned in the BSC and MAC courses
      3. Completion of the following courses:
