Program Requirements

We take great pride in the rigor of our curriculum and our students' thirst for success. Setting the bar high in our program admissions requirements helps maintain those standards from the beginning. All are outlined below for you to begin your application.

ENGL 101 English Composition I
ENGL 102 English Composition II
BIOL 101/101L Anatomy and Physiology I with Lab
BIOL 102/102L Anatomy and Physiology II with Lab

Part 1: Apply to ADU

To become a student here at ADU, you must first apply to the school itself. We offer processes tailored for every kind of student, whether you're straight out of high school or interested in online learning. Check out your admissions requirements before applying to a specific program.

Part 2: Apply to the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program

Our students enjoy top-notch facilities, program curriculums, and complete access to our faculty. To ensure students the education they trust us to provide, we place an annual admissions cap on our Nuclear Medicine Technology program, so that our incoming students won't have their resources at ADU stretched thin. Students who meet our admission requirements qualify for consideration to enter the Nuclear Medicine Technology program, but the competitive nature of the program's admission process means meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Students may be given preferential consideration for admission to the program, however, when they have successfully completed 12 college-level hours at Adventist University.

We do require that accepted applicants place a nonrefundable $200 deposit to reserve your program slot. Your acceptance letter will outline a deposit amount and deadline indicating when we must receive the deposit. Once enrolled in the program, these funds will be applied to your account. Those who paid the deposit but decline to enroll in the program will forfeit the deposit; If that student is admitted to the same program at a later date, ADU will require another full deposit. If an applicant is admitted to a program with prerequisites in progress and becomes ineligible for admission due to grades, however, a full refund will be provided. A professional program deposit is not transferable to another department. Distance Education students are not required to pay a program deposit.

  • Apply
    Please submit the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program Application once admitted to the University, accessible through my.adu.edu.
  • Minimum GPA
    We require a minimum cumulative, unweighed high school GPA of 2.70 or 12 college credits from a regionally accredited college with a 2.70 minimum GPA—a cumulative record of all college-level work.
  • Prerequisites
    Please complete our prerequisite courses — Anatomy & Physiology I, Anatomy & Physiology II, College Algebra, English Composition I, English Composition II, and Applied or Elementary Statistics — by the program start date. Applicants possessing a minimum of 12 college-level credits at Adventist University are most competitive, as are applicants having completed the noted courses. Please recognize that all six prerequisite courses must be completed before the program begins.
  • ACT Score
    We request a minimum ACT composite score of 19, with an individual score of 19 on the math section, from applicants. Potential entrants with 24 or more college-level credits from a regionally accredited college, however, are exempt from this requirement.
  • Recommendation Forms

    Please submit two ADU Recommendation Forms. If an applicant to an undergraduate program has completed at least one trimester at Adventist University of Health Sciences before being admitted to a program, one of the two recommendations must come from any Adventist University faculty member, adjunct professor, tutoring coordinator, chaplain, or academic advisor.

  • Essay
    Each applicant must submit an entry essay during the admission process. The essay should describe the applicant's particular intend for entering the Nuclear Medicine Technology program, as well as the applicant's desire to pursue this course of study at ADU, a faith-based institution, and his or her future goals. We would also like to learn the applicant's characteristics and abilities that qualify him or her for this profession. The applicant should also express his or her perception of how nuclear medicine technologists contribute to healthcare and how an educational experience at ADU will enable the applicant to make future contributions. Essays are reviewed for clarity, correct spelling and grammar, and content.
  • Optional Job Shadow
    Although a job shadow in Nuclear Medicine Technology is not mandatory prior to admission, prospective students are strongly encouraged to contact the Department of Radiologic Sciences to begin job shadowing with one of our faculty members to expand his or her knowledge of the profession.
  • Interview
    Competitive applicants will be invited to attend an interview. Meeting minimum admissions requirements does not guarantee an invitation for an interview. Every applicant who wishes to be accepted to the program must complete the interview process.
