Admission:
Radiologic Technology is a competitive progression program. Students must complete all of the prerequisite courses (ENGL 1101, MATH 1101 or MATH 1111, MATH 1127, Humanities/Fine Arts Area Four [refer to page 139 for options], PSYC 1101, BIOL 2113, BIOL 2113L, BIOL 2114, BIOL 2114L, and ALHS 1090) with a minimum GPA of 2.75 on a 4.0 scale by the designated deadline (pages 15-16) to be evaluated for program progression. The grade point average in BIOL 2113, BIOL 2113L, BIOL 2114, BIOL 2114L, MATH 1101 or MATH 1111, and MATH 1127 determines the academic/ranking order for selection of students for progression to the courses with the RADT prefixes. Students who are not selected for progression should consider a program change or resubmit an application and progression form by the designated deadline for the next progression term. High school graduation or GED is also required for admission to this program. For more information regarding this process, please contact the Admissions Office at (706) 771-4028.
