The entry requirements for Radiographer students are the same as listed above for the non-radiography track. One business elective can be completed during the first term of entry into the professional program if necessary. Radiographer applicants must supply evidence of registration in radiography by the ARRT or completion of a radiography program accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology.
The technical-specialty area is complete for applicants who have completed an associate or baccalaureate bachelor’s degree in radiography. Students who received their technical training in non-credit-awarding programs and who have full credentials in radiography (ARRT) may be awarded credit for their credentials and experiences and/or petition to test out of technical-specialty courses.
A personal interview is required for admission to this program. If, however, the number of applications to the program far exceeds the number of positions available, the program’s admissions committee reserves the right to limit the number of applicants to be interviewed to twice the number of positions available in the class. Interviews are conducted in February.
