The Radiologic Technology curriculum is composed of two segments, pre-radiologic technology and professional radiologic technology. Pre-radiologic technology is the segment comprising four academic semesters, or the equivalent, in an accredited college or university. It is concerned with instruction in general education and the basic physical and biological sciences to prepare the student for professional Radiologic Technology. The professional program in radiologic technology consists of four academic semesters plus two summer sessions between the junior and senior years, or the equivalent, after admission to the professional program in Radiologic Technology. It is concerned with instruction in professional Radiologic Technology and related courses to prepare the student for the professional practice of radiologic technology.
Off-campus clinical activities are required of each student. Students are financially responsible for these activities.
Admission to Pre-Radiologic Technology
Applicants for admission to the Pre-Radiologic Technology curriculum must meet the general admission requirements for admission to the University. Applications are to be submitted to the University Admissions Office www.ulm.edu/prospectivestudents/.
Admission to the Professional Program in Radiologic Technology
The professional program in Radiologic Technology is taught in conjunction with the clinical facilities at local medical centers. Admissions are determined annually based upon the availability of clinical positions. Preference is extended to Louisiana residents and/or ULM scholarship recipients.
Applicants for admission to the professional program in Radiologic Technology, in addition to meeting the requirements for admission to the University, must meet the requirements of the Pre-Radiologic Technology curriculum and must have earned a minimum uncorrected cumulative grade point average of at least a 2.5 on a 4.00 scale in all previous course work at all higher institutions of attendance, possess a minimum corrected grade point average of 2.7 on a 4.00 scale in all required pre-professional Radiologic Technology courses (excluding developmental courses), and possess a grade of “C” or better in all required mathematics, natural science and Radiologic Technology courses. Due to utilization of objective criteria in processing applications, attainment of minimum requirements in the Pre-Radiologic Technology curriculum does not guarantee admission to the professional Radiologic Technology Program.
Application forms for admission to the professional program of Radiologic Technology may be obtained from the department head for Radiologic Technology or from the department website, www.ulm.edu/radtech. Completed application (including receipt of application fee payment) forms are to be submitted to the department head for Radiologic Technology by May 31 of the year the student seeks admission for the fall semester. Applications will be reviewed by the Admissions and Academic Standards Committee.
