Congratulations on your admittance to the Radiation and Imaging Science program at Bellevue College! Welcome to the Bulldog family! Please check out the information below for important information for admitted students!

Next Steps

Now that you have been accepted, please review the following information and complete the necessary next steps!

RAIS Handbook

The Radiation & Imaging Sciences student handbook is a useful resource for all students. It contains helpful information about campus resources as well as campus wide and program specific policies and procedures. This is a living document and updates to occur occasionally.

Education Plan

As a student in the RAIS program, you will receive an education plan specifically tailored toto fit your interests, your previous coursework, and your schedule all while meeting the degree requirements for your program. Your education plan will be provide you the framework for your time here in the program. It is imperative that you follow your education plan exactly. Deterring from your education plan may cause your graduation timeline to extend. Any changes to your education plan must be discussed with your Program Manager prior to implementing the changes.

As you progress through the program, it’s important to check in periodically with the Program Manager and update your educational plan.  We use these plans to estimate enrollment for upcoming quarters and plan our curriculum to meet demand.  You can help us make sure the courses you want are available when you want them by letting us know anytime you make changes to the courses outlined on your plan.

Requesting Entry Codes

In many cases, as a student admitted to the Radiation and Imaging Sciences program, you can register for RAIS courses without an entry code.  However, there are a few courses that will still require them. Additionally, current radiation and imaging professionals and students may take courses through our program if space is available. If you need an entry code to register for the upcoming quarter, please complete the Entry Code Request Form!


Your Program Manager will send you registration information 1-2 weeks prior to the start of registration. Students should register early to avoid waitlists and late registration. As a RAIS student, we have temporarily reserve a seat for you in your HCML and RAIT courses. However, in order to manage class sizes and ensure that courses are not cancelled for low enrollment, unfilled seats will be released to students outside of the RAIS program two weeks prior to the end of registration. At that point, we can no longer guarantee you a spot in the course. If no open seats remain, your graduation timeline may be impacted. It is highly recommend that you register as early as possible. Seats in general education courses such as ENGL 201 or BUS& 101 cannot be guaranteed.


Check out the Bellevue College Bookstore for your textbooks and other school supplies. The BC Bookstore offers price comparing and options for book rental. If no book is listed for your course, please email the instructor directly.


Canvas is a web-based software that allows student and teachers to interact online in a classroom setting. While your classes are virtual, you will be expected to log on in the first day or two of class for attendance and regularly each week throughout the quarter. This might include checking in daily to read new posts or announcement. Please note that your on campus courses and hybrid courses may also have an online Canvas component!
