Because of the highly technical nature of the Radiologic Technology Program, admission requirements are more rigid than for entrance into the general programs offered by TSC. Requirements for admission to the Radiologic Technology Program are as follows:
- Admission to TSC (acceptance does not necessarily guarantee acceptance to the Radiologic Technology Program)
- Completion of "Application for Admission" to the Radiologic Technology Program.
- Test score results — ACT Exam.
- Transcripts of all previous high school or college work or GED scores.
- Prerequisites: BIOL 2301, 2101, 2302, 2102
- Application deadline last work day in August
Students will be selected from the applicant pool based on scores from the ACT test and grades in the following courses: Human Anatomy and Physiology I (Biology 2301), Human Anatomy and Physiology II (BIOL 2302), College Algebra (MATH 1314), and Composition I (ENGL 1301). While College Algebra and Composition I are not prerequisites for admission, good grades in these courses could raise your ranking in the applicant pool.
- A physical exam, up-to-date immunizations and CPR Certification are required of all students prior to clinical assignments.
- Criminal background checks will be required of allied health students prior to clinical assignments.
- Applicants with a history of a felony or misdemeanor should contact the program director for additional information and may also submit a Pre-Application Review of Eligibility Form to the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists to determine their eligibility to take the A.R.R.T. examination.
Graduates are eligible to sit for the national certification examination for Radiologic Technology administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Also, the State of Texas requires that individuals apply for a state licensure before being allowed to practice in this state.
