  1. Referral:
    1. Complete an application to the college
    2. Applicants interested in the program should schedule an appointment with Ashley Pearson or any of our other counselors to review the admission requirements and be referred to the Program Director.
      • Applicants will need to provide copies of their high school transcripts
      • Applicants will need to provide copies of college transcripts
      • Applicants for referral must have met the prerequisites (2 years of science such as chemistry, biology or physics and 2 years of mathematics such as algebra I, II, and/or geometry)
      • Applicants may be required to take college placement tests. Any deficiencies must be remediated before an applicant will be referred to the Program Director
      • Applicants for referral must have a minimum cumulative college GPA of 2.5 (cumulative includes all college work attempted). If the cumulative GPA does not meet the 2.5 requirement, the last college GPA where at least 12 credits were attempted will be used. If that GPA is a 2.5 or higher, the applicant may be referred. Note: the 12 credits must be completed before the start of the spring semester in the year the student applies. If no college has been attempted then a minimum high school GPA of 3.3 is required for referral.
      • Referrals must be made by the March 1 deadline. After that date, no referral will be accepted for consideration.
  2. Applications
    All applicants who have been referred to the Program Director will receive an application for the Radiography Program. Applications must be completed by the deadline indicated on the application letter. Any application received after the deadline regardless of the reason will not be considered.
  3. Interviews
    Selected candidates will be requested to schedule an interview with the Program Director and subsequent interview/clinical tour with one of the clinical instructors. Candidates who are selected for interviews are those who meet all or most of the following requirements:
    • Have a minimum college GPA of a 2.5. If no college course work has been completed, the high school GPA will be used to determine eligibility for an interview along with work/life experience.
    • Demonstrate an understanding of the career field and the duties performed (based on application responses)
    • Demonstrate a commitment to the career field (based on application responses)
    • Provide application answers in a format consistent with college level ability
    • Provide thoughtful answers on the application that demonstrate the ability to relate experience to the questions asked
    • Have started the process of taking the general required courses for the program. At the discretion of the Program Director, a candidate having no college work or those with no general program prerequisites will be granted an interview.
  4. Selection Process
    We can only take a selected number of students each year. Candidate selection is based on scores given to the following criteria:
    • GPA: high school
    • Cumulative college GPA
    • Verbal and nonverbal communication skills during the interview process
    • Professional appearance and demeanor
    • Timeliness to the interview(s)
    • Demonstrated knowledge of the profession, job duties, and personal career goals
    • Science course grades, Medical Terminology grades and Anatomy & Physiology grades (if applicable)
    • Any related healthcare or customer service experience
    • Interview skills
    • Professional judgment of the interviewers
  5. If a student receives an acceptance letter, their acceptance into the program is contingent upon:
    1. The student shows up for the scheduled orientation meeting that will be mentioned during the interview process
    2. The Program Director receives a clear Criminal Background check and clear Drug Screen by the date noted in the acceptance letter 

If a student fails to do any of these items, their acceptance from the program is withdrawn and they must drop any radiology course in which they have enrolled. The student may reapply as a new candidate the next year if they so choose.

If at anytime in the program a student fails a drug screen, they will be immediately withdrawn from the program. The program has a zero tolerance drug policy. 

 

Alternate Candidates:
Several qualified candidates who did not make the final selection cut will receive letters indicating they are alternates. Alternate candidates may be called in the event a student declines their program acceptance. These alternates will be given extra points toward their score the next year if they chose to reapply.
