Due to the restrictions of class size, application to the program DOES NOT guarantee acceptance.

Interview and admission to the DCH Radiologic Technology Program  is limited, is highly competitive and is based on JRCERT criteria. The DCH faculty want all students admitted into the program to be highly successful. To accomplish this, the program uses a Radiologic Technology Point Rating System to assist in selection of qualified students.  The Point Rating System evaluates composite ACT scores, grades in certain college courses, and GPA. Entry into the program is highly competitive. The School of Radiography reserves the right to limit the number of applicants interviewed during years when excessive numbers of applications are received. In this situation, top academic performers will be selected for interview.  Others will be notified that they will not be receiving an interview.

In the event an applicant was not accepted into the program or granted an interview, the applicant may inquire of the Program Director of deficiencies which may have caused their unsuccessful application. The applicant is given guidance in applying to the Radiologic Technology Program for the following year or guidance in selecting an alternate career goal.

Interview Process

If the minimum requirements are met, the applicant is invited for  a personal interview at the school. The personal interview allows the applicant to gain a better understanding of the School of Radiography, its faculty and the educational process, and ask related questions. This interview allows the program administrators to learn about the applicant’s personality, interests, background, attitudes, motivations, and knowledge of the field.  The committee discusses and informs the applicant of responsibilities expected of students in the School of Radiography as well as the school’s responsibilities to the student.
