For a detailed explanation of the program's admission requirements and application process, download the program's Application Packet.
Admission Requirement Summary
- High school graduate or GED
- Cumulative college GPA of 2.0 or above
- Prerequisite GPA of 2.5 or above in the following core courses with a grade of "C" or above earned in each course:
- BIO-1221 Anatomy and Physiology for Medical Imaging
- ENG-1010 College Composition I
- DMS-1351 Patient Care Skills
- MATH-1240 or higher Contemporary Mathematics or higher
- MA-1020 Medical Terminology I

Core courses may be repeated only once to improve a grade below "C."
Core courses must be taken for a traditional letter grade. The pass/no pass option for core and program courses will not be accepted.
There is no time limit on core courses. However, applicants are advised that they will be held accountable for the content of core courses when they begin the program. Applicants are strongly advised to review math and skeletal anatomy prior to beginning the program.
BIO-2331 and BIO-2341 together may substitute for BIO 1221.
MATH-1200 and MATH-1280 completed prior to Fall 2016 and MATH-1270 completed prior to Summer 2017 will meet Tri-C's math requirements for graduation only through Summer 2021. Students applying to the program at this time will graduate after Summer 2021 so they must complete MATH-1240 or a higher level math course (e.g. MATH-1410, MATH-1530, etc.) which will meet the math requirement for graduation after Summer 2021.
- Mandatory Program Information Session. Attendance at an information session does NOT need to be completed prior to applying but must be completed prior to program entry. Sessions are held every semester. Students must sign in to document their attendance, attend the entire session and are encouraged to bring a support person.
- Non-native speakers of English must complete the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a minimum internet based test score (iBT) of 24 in the speaking component and a minimum iBT score of 22 in the listening component. Refer to the Radiography Program Application Packet for additional information.
- Acceptable background check results
It is very important that applicants understand that the College's determination of acceptable background check results for the purpose of admission to the educational program does NOT guarantee a similar determination by other entities (i.e. clinical affiliates, professional certifying organizations [i.e. American Registry of Radiologic Technologists] and/or future employers). Students with a history of prior conviction should be prepared and will be required to comply with the requirements of clinical and accrediting agencies throughout the course of their educational program and career.
