2016 Application Checklist

 

Please read all of the information carefully, and follow the instructions.
Based on input from the Rad Tech Advisory Committee, and Rad Tech Application Committee -
there have been some slight changes made to the 2016 Application.  Example: 

  • Due to the limited avaliable hospitals to do observation hours, these points have been removed from the 2016 application.  Any observation hours that have been completed will be used as a "tie breaker" points in the event that students have the same points on their application.
  • All requred courses must be completed, and a grade posted at the time the application is filed.  The application date has been extended past the end of the semester so that students may have the opportunity to complete courses during the spring semeter as well.
  • ALL COURSES on page 2 of the Program Application must be completed by the end of SPRING 2016. Transcripts are required with the application for verification of grades.


To file the application, you must visit a counselor during the drop in appointment times.

Please do not mail in applications to the Counseling Department or the Radiologic Technology Program Director.
