Admission to Program

Admission Requirements

Candidates for admission must be registered or registry-eligible by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) in radiography, radiation therapy or nuclear medicine technology. Nuclear medicine technology applicants may also be registered or registry eligible by the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB).

Regardless of the supporting imaging program, applicants who have completed a supporting imaging program must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 on all program course work. Students enrolled in a supporting imaging program at the time of application must have a 2.5 GPA on all course work through the fall term of their final year. Program participants must show evidence of supporting program certification to receive their CT certificate.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Applicants who complete Step I by March 1 for the Summer-Fall term (July-December) or by October 1 for the Spring Summer term (January-June) will receive priority placement at clinical sites based on ranking. Applications submitted after these dates will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis, contingent upon the availability of remaining clinical sites.
