Frequently Asked Questions
How do I apply to the program?
To begin the process you must apply to the University.
All applicants must submit their undergraduate application to the Admissions Office or Center for Adult and Part-Time Students application (CAPS students are 22 years of age or older), high school transcripts, any previous college transcripts, ACT or SAT test scores. You can apply to the University on-line at www.xavier.edu/apply . After you have been accepted as an undergraduate student, your acceptance letter will instruct you to contact the Radiologic Technology Program.
Where can I find the RT application forms?
You can find the RT application form under the RT application form tab. You must return the RT application to Xavier University, Radiologic Technology Program, 3800 Victory Parkway Cincinnati, 45207-7332.
When does the program begin?
The RT program begins only one time a year which is August 1.
It is common for RT programs in the State of Ohio to form waiting lists for admission into the RT programs. Xavier has a waiting list of one to two years. If you are accepted into Xavier but placed on the RT program's waiting list, you can use this year to begin working toward a bachelor's degree. You will be notified of the waiting peroid for the RT program during the RT application and interview process. Currently, the RT program has a two year waiting period.
Can my previous college transcripts transfer into the program?
The program has students with various backgrounds. Some of our students are recent high school graduates, some with one to two years of college, and some hold a bachelors degree in another discipline. When you submit your college transcript(s), the Registrar's Office will review your transfer courses for course equivalent at Xavier University. For an example, if you have taken English Composition, Sociology, History, Psychology or Human Anatomy and Physiology you can transfer those credits into the RT program. However, the radiologic courses (RADT) must be taken at Xavier and in sequence so it will take two years to complete the program.
Transfers students into the RT program may want to pursue a bachelor degree at the same they are completing their associate degree. Call the Program Director for more details at (513) 745-3358.
