Transfer Credit Policy

General Education Prerequisite Coursework
Transfer credits will be accepted for courses equivalent to General Education Prerequisite courses from regionally accredited colleges and universities in which the student has earned a C- or higher.  Equivalents to application requirements will be evaluated on an individual basis upon petition from an applicant.

Professional Education Coursework
Requests for transfer credits for professional radiography courses will be reviewed by the Department of Medical Imaging on an individual basis.  A request for such transfer credit does not guarantee approval of credit.

Students who have completed an A.S. degree or diploma from an accredited program and currently hold ARRT certification are eligible to complete the BSMI.  Transfer credits will be reviewed on an individual basis.  Please contact the Medical Imaging department to make an appointment for transcript evaluation.
