Radiologic Technology

Admission

Criteria

All applicants must first be accepted as undergraduate students at Xavier University before applying to the radiologic technology program.

Students entering the Radiologic Technology Program must be 18 by September 30 of the enrollment year. This follows the suggested guidelines set forth by the National Council of Radiation Protection and Measurements for student radiographers.

Procedure

  1. Applicants must complete and submit an undergraduate application form to Xavier University as well as send official high school transcripts or G.E.D. scores, ACT or SAT test scores, and any college transcripts to the Admissions Office. Applicants must indicate radiologic technology as their intended major on the application form. The university application forms can be submitted online.

  2. The Admissions Office will screen the application and transcripts to see if the applicant meets Xavier's admissions requirements. When applicants are accepted by Xavier, they will receive a letter of acceptance into the university as an undergraduate student. Your acceptance letter will instruct you to contact the Radiologic Technology Program Director.

  3. After acceptance as an undergraduate student at Xavier, you will then apply to the Radiologic Technology Program. Mail your RT application to Donna Endicott, RT Program Director, Xavier University, 3800 Victory Parkway, Cincinnati, OH 45207-7332. Applicants must have a current GPA of 2.4 or higher to be eligible for acceptance into the RT program.

  4. It is the responsibility of the applicant to contact the program director to schedule an interview date, after the applicant has been accepted into the University as an undergraduate student. To schedule the interview, call or email Donna Endicott (513) 745-3358 or endicott@xavier.edu 
          
  5. The radiologic technology program director and clinical instructors from affiliate hospitals will interview qualified applicants before being admitted into the RT program. The applicants are screened to see if they meet the 2.4 GPA or higher requirement. The applicant will meet with the program director to discuss the program and requirements. Also, applicants are required to complete observation time within a radiology department. All applicants will be interviewed by a panel consisting of the program director, clinical instructors and managers from affiliate hospitals. The applicants will be ranked using the average of a rubric score and grade-point-average. Based on applicant's ranking score, the program will offer acceptance letters to the top 15 applicants.

  6. After the program is filled, all other accepted undergraduate applicants are placed on a waiting list. Should vacancies arise before the program begins in August, offers of acceptance are sent to eligible students in the order they are on the waiting list.  Final acceptance is granted when the student submits evidence of a current 2.4 GPA or higher, completion of physical form, CPR certification, and submission of immunization records.

  7. If students are not admitted to the program and placed on the waiting list, it is their responsible to reapply to the program for the next year.

Note: Applicants must indicate their hospital preference on the RT application form with first and second choices. Each hospital is limited to the number of students they can accept each year; therefore, you may be placed in your second hospital choice. If this occurs, you will be notified at the time you receive your acceptance letter.
