Richland will be closed on Fridays during the summer semester.
This page contains the following information pertaining to the Radiography Program:
Unlike many academic and career and technical education programs at Richland, admission into the Radiography Program is selective and competitive. Admission to Richland Community College does not guarantee acceptance to the program. Out-of-district students will be considered for the program when space is available.
Students must meet the minimal admission criteria to be eligible to apply. Please read below for description of prerequisites and admission criteria.
Applicants must be one of the following:
Submit all of the following:
Note: High school and college academic records from admissions five or more years ago may be excluded from the evaluation by submitting a written request to the Program Director.
Meet one of the following:
Note: The last biology course taken (BIOL 101, 201, 202) must have been completed within the last five years.
The Radiography Program follows the Health Profession selective admissions process. Applications are available from October 1 through December 15 each year. Deadline for returning applications is February 1. Students receive notification by mail in mid March of their application status.
Students who will complete course requirements in the spring semester that precedes the summer semester start of the program may submit their application as soon as they have registered for spring classes.
Students who submit applications are scored on a rubric and the 12 highest scores are accepted in rank order. In the event of a tie for the twelfth position, the student with the highest RADT 101 score is admitted. Criteria of assessment include the following:
Students will lose points on the rubric for withdrawals (W) or repeated prerequisite or general education coursework that applies to the program.
For example: If a student withdraws from BIOL 201 in the fall and then completes it in the spring semester they will lose one point for the withdrawal. If a student gets a D in BIOL 201 and repeats it with a passing grade the next semester they will lose a point for the repeat.
Incomplete applications will not be assessed.
Students not in the top twelve are placed on an alternate list for the current application cycle. To remain eligible, students must continue to meet all eligibility requirements. If a student on the alternate list is not selected for late admission they must reapply for the next year.
All students admitted in March are conditionally accepted. They must meet the following criteria to be fully admitted to the program:
