Admission Policies

General Information

Admission to the professional year is competitive. Students are selected based on their previous academic background, and evidence of registration or registration eligibility with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Students will need to select an area of clinical  concentrations. There are a limited number of spaces available in each clinical concentration.

Students may apply for special credit (12 credit hours) for holding a post-primary certification related to Medical Imaging (ARDMS, CT, MRI, Mammography, Nuclear Medicine, etc.). If special credit is awarded, all remaining courses must be taken within the non-clinical track professional curriculum in the Medical Imaging Technology Program. Special credit hours do not apply toward the 30 credit hour minimum required for the professional program.   

Class Size
Class size is restricted by the number of clinical sites available. An attempt will be made to place all qualified applicants.

Criminal History Check

Drug Screening Policy

Students may be required to have a drug screen prior to attending clinical experience or it may be required on demand under certain situations in the clinical site.  A positive drug screen will result in removal from the clinical site and possible dismissal from the program.
