B.S. Radiographic Science
Admission to the Radiographic Science program is competitive. Students will be evaluated and points awarded by using grades in the core objectives and program required courses. Additional points are awarded to ISU Students, residents of the State of Idaho, students who complete BIOL 3301/3302, and 2nd time and subsequent applicants who have completed all of the prerequisite classes the previous year. Students will be selected using GPA and any additional points earned by the student. A minimum grade point average of 3.0 is required. Procedures for admission to the program include:
- Complete procedures for admission to the University.
- Complete and return the Radiographic Science Application Form and $100 fee.
- Complete the necessary prerequisite course work.
- Submit official transcripts of all college and/or university courses completed, including advanced placement or dual-enrolled courses.
The above admission procedures must be completed and received by the Radiographic Science Program by May 15th of the year the student is seeking admission. If the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday, the application must be received by the Friday preceding the deadline date. The first professional year begins in the fall semester.
Idaho State University Radiographic Science Program Policy for Transfer of Credit From Other Radiography Programs
The Idaho State University Radiographic Science program will award up to 44 credits in radiography for programs completed at accredited hospital based, university or college based, military based, and/or accredited vocational-technical schools. To be eligible to receive credit, the student must:
- Be a currently registered radiographer, or RT(R).
- Have worked as a radiographer during the past three years or amount of time to remain proficient to be determined by the evaluating committee.
- Submit evidence of experience and curriculum including:
- certificate of successful completion of registry.
- currently registered by the ARRT.
- certified list of courses and descriptions of curriculum from accredited hospital-based, university or college-based, military-based, and/or accredited vocational technical programs.
- official college transcripts.
