This program is currently in the process of ending its practice of admitting Students via a waitlist. Students who submitted their program entry paperwork before August 31st, 2018, will be admitted through our Grandfathering Process. The Grandfathering Process for Radiologic Technology is as follows: grandfathered students will be contacted and asked to register in the order their names were added to the program waitlist. Once this waitlist has been exhausted, remaining program-ready students will be allowed to register. Students will be emailed to notify them that the waitlist has been exhausted and program seats have opened.

Students who have completed ALL prerequisite requirements before the start of first quarter core courses will be admitted, after the conclusion of our Grandfathering process, and based on the order in which they register for remaining open seats.
