Admissions Policies

Admission Procedure

Upon notification of acceptance into the Nuclear Medicine Technology program, accepted students must complete the following steps:

*   Return the signed acceptance form to indicate intent to enroll in the program.

*   Pay a $250 deposit (which will be credited to fall quarter tuition)

*   Complete a national background check as directed – student is responsible for cost of the background check (approximately $40)

*   Complete immunizations.


Advance Placement Policy


The Bellevue College nuclear medicine technology program does not accept advanced placement students who have completed a portion of another nuclear medicine technology program. Bellevue College is only able to ensure that all appropriate topics and competencies are covered in its own curriculum. Therefore, students with prior nuclear medicine education are welcome to apply to the program, but will need to complete it in its entirety.

Note: the above does NOT apply to prerequisite courses. The program’s prerequisites are standard college courses that may be taken at any accredited two-year or four-year institution.


Policy regarding Minor Students


Washington State law prohibits the occupational radiation exposure of persons under the age of 18.  Therefore, the Bellevue College Nuclear Medicine Technology program does not accept students who have not reached their 18th birthday at the time the program begins.
