Prerequisite Courses

Please take note on recent changes to our list of Prerequisite courses.

All Applicants to the Radiologic Technology program are required to complete the following prerequisite courses. Each prerequisite course must be completed with a grade of 2.7 or higher.

Prerequisite courses must also meet the following requirements:

  • All courses must be from a regionally accredited college.
  • Each prerequisite course may be repeated up to a maximum of 2 times. If the BIOL&241 and BIOL&242 courses are repeated within the 5 year period, first and retake grades will be averaged.
  • 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

*Due to COVID-19 restrictions affecting on-campus meetings, the Radiologic Technology program will be accepting fully on-line BIOL& 241 and BIOL& 242 through the admission period 2023 (extended). This means last quarter you can take online BIOL&241 and BIOL&242 for 2023 applications is Spring quarter 2023.

Please refer to the following resources to check your previous or future coursework from other nationally accredited College or University and find out if they meet the prerequisite requirements for the program:
