Suggested Electives– Students must earn a total of 15 credit hours in physical and biological sciences. To complete a minimum of 122 credit hours of academic work for graduation, additional electives may be required.
Class Size - Based on the availability of clinical education sites for each major area.
Criteria Used for Selection of Class - Evidence of registration by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), cumulative GPA weighted 40%, radiologic technology GPA weighted 20%, clinical radiologic technology GPA weighted 20%, science/math GPA weighted 20%.
Application Deadline - November 15 of the year prior to desired entry.
Minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average - 2.8 on a 4.0 scale at the time of application. Grades from all college courses taken, including remedial courses and courses that do not meet prerequisite requirements, are considered when calculating the minimum cumulative grade point average.
Minimum Specific Grade Point Average – 3.0 on a 4.0 scale for all radiologic technology course work. 2.5 on a 4.0 scale for all physical and biological sciences.
Minimum Grade Requirement in a Stated Prerequisite Course - C (2.0 on a 4.0 scale)
Technical Standards - See IUPUI Health Professions Programs policy.
Interview - An interview is not required.
The details of your prerequisite course work should be discussed with an IPFW allied health sciences advisor.
