Radiography: Admissions

Program Requirements

The A.S. Radiography Program Manual contains the policies of the program. By enrolling as a radiography student, each applicant agrees to abide by the regulations as outlined.

Prerequisites

Successfully complete College Algebra and Introduction to Microcomputers with a minimum grade of a C, or 2.00.

Part 1: Apply to ADU

To become a student here at ADU, you must first apply to the school, itself. There are processes tailored to each student type, whether you're straight out of high school or interested in online learning. Check out the admissions requirements appropriate for you, and take this first step before applying to a specific program.

Part 2: Apply to the Radiography Program

All applicants must meet the general admission requirements to enroll in undergraduate coursework at Adventist University of Health Sciences.

A background check is required for admission into the Radiography Program. The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and various state licensing agencies require disclosure of all misdemeanor and felony convictions. The results of the background check may impact eligibility for certification and licensure and should be determined in advance of beginning an educational program. For further information, see the A.S. Radiography Program Manual.

  • Apply
    Submit the Radiography Program Application, once admitted to the University. The application can be accessed at my.adu.edu.
  • Competitive GPA
    Have a minimum cumulative high school unweighted GPA of 2.70 or have taken 12 or more college credits with a minimum GPA of 2.70 from a regionally accredited institution. Although the minimum GPA for application is 2.70, the competitive nature of the program typically results in a higher minimum accepting GPA. GPAs presented to the admissions committee for each applicant will be a cumulative record of all college-level work. Applicants that have completed a minimum of 12 college-level credits at ADU and have completed the prerequisite courses by the application deadline will be given preference for program admission. Applicants should be advised that the prerequisite courses, College Algebra and Introduction to Microcomputers, must be completed by the program start date.
  • ACT Score
    Have a minimum ACT composite score of 19. Applicants with 24 or more credits from a regionally-accredited college are exempt from taking the ACT.
  • Prerequisites
    Successfully complete College Algebra and Introduction to Microcomputers with a minimum grade of a C, or 2.00.
  • Recommendation Forms
    Submit two recommendations on ADU Recommendation Forms. If an applicant to an undergraduate program has completed at least one trimester at Adventist University of Health Sciences (ADU) before being admitted to a program, one of the two recommendations must come from any ADU faculty member, adjunct professor, tutoring coordinator, chaplain, or academic coach/advisor. Special recommendation forms for this requirement are available in the Office of Enrollment Services.
