Secondary Admissions - Advanced Medical Imaging Technology

Upon successful completion of all freshman and sophomore year requirements, students may enter the professional curriculum of the program (junior and senior years). This is a competitive process. Not all students will be accepted into the professional curriculum.

Program faculty consider the quality of the application, overall GPA, math and science GPA and an interview/project in the selection process.

You must apply for the professional education curriculum during fall semester of the year prior to your anticipated start date.   You are not required to complete prerequisite work before applying to the professional education curriculum but all prerequisite work must be completed before beginning the professional education curriculum.

Students wishing to apply must have a 2.8 overall GPA or higher. No grades below C- in a math or science course are accepted.

Due to the standards set forth by national accrediting agencies, professional curriculum students attend classes for 12 consecutive months (i.e., fall, spring, and summer semesters). Upon acceptance into the professional curriculum students will study both:

  • Nuclear medicine technology, a branch of medicine that deals with the use of radioactive substances in research, diagnosis, and treatment.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging, a technique that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body.  These techniques are used to diagnosis disease and analyze human anatomy.

If accepted, you must be an Advanced Medical Imaging Technology major in the College of Allied Health Sciences before registering for classes.

Although the limiting factor is usually the availability of clinical sites, program faculty are under no obligation to accept a student into the professional curriculum simply because availabilities exist. The number of clinical sites available from one year to the next is variable. Program officials will not know the number of available sites until summer semester.

Secondary Admissions Application Criteria

Students wishing to apply must have a 2.8 overall GPA or higher. No grades below C- in a math or science course are accepted.

Program faculty consider the quality of the application, overall GPA, math and science GPA and an interview/project in the selection process.

Four criteria are evaluated and considered by program officials when selecting applicants.

Quality of application

  • Preparation (civic engagement, observation/shadowing/first-hand knowledge of the disciplines) 
  • Evidence of good character 
  • Written communication (strict adherence to formal grammar, spelling, and punctuation is expected).

Overall GPA

  • Breadth and comprehension of academic background (transcripts for ALL previous collegiate work must be submitted with the application).
  • Minimum overall GPA of 2.8 or higher is required at time of application. 

Math and Science GPA 

  • Comprehension of coursework directly related to professional studies (All math and science courses taken to meet program requirements are considered. Math and science work completed in more advanced classes are considered if they are being used to meet program requirements).

Group Project

  • Interpersonal interactions (generally about 6 – 10 applicants per group). 

Secondary Admissions Timeline

Applications are due the first day of spring semester of each academic year.

The first three stages of the application process are usually completed in January and February. Only those students meeting the minimum criteria stated in the application will be invited to the final stage.

The final stage will be completed in March with students being notified of the decisions in April.

Unanticipated circumstances may extend these dates and applicants will be notified when/if delays should occur. Communication between applicants and program officials will occur primarily via email so applicants are urged to include an email address that they check regularly on their application.
