Additional requirements on prerequisite courses:

  • Prerequisite courses must be from a regionally accredited community or four year college. It’s your responsibility to assure that courses you’ve taken at other institutions of higher education meet the curriculum context of Bellevue College courses.
  • Prerequisites must be completed by the end of winter quarter for the year that you are applying. For example: Applicants applying for admission to the program for fall 2024 must complete all prerequisites by the end of winter quarter 2024.
  • BIOL&241 and BIOL&242 hybrid courses must have:
    • hands on labs that meet on campus (see note below*)
    • all exams either proctored or on campus.

Currently, we do not differentiate between online and in-person learning to meet BIOL&241 and BIOL&242 program pre-requisites. We highly encourage students to participate in Anatomy and Biology courses that are presented in-person or in a hybrid format since we have found that students learn much better in these settings. Our requirement for BIOL&241 and BIOL&242 courses is that all exams be proctored regardless of the learning environment.

  • Rule on retakes: If only one prerequisite course is repeated within a three-year period, the higher grade will be used in the prerequisite GPA calculation. If two or more courses within the same three-year period are repeated, we will use the higher grade for one prerequisite course then use the averaged grade for the 2nd repeated course into the GPA calculation. Each prerequisite course may only be repeated twice.

Options for other imaging science modalities: Applicants who are ARRT certified in MRI, nuclear medicine, radiation therapy, radiography, and sonograph may request transfer credits for consideration. The radiation therapy program will review each case individually. Students must meet educational institution policies and complete the courses needed to meet ARRT eligibility requirements.
