The TMCC Radiologic Technology Program begins each fall semester. Admission to the program is limited to 16 students and requires specific admission procedures. Students are selected by means of a formal program application and the calculation of assigned points. Applicants must be at least 17 years old.
In order to apply to the Radiologic Technology Program you must:
|Note: The following courses must have been completed in the past five years. Equivalent courses from other accredited colleges are acceptable, but must be approved by TMCC. These courses must be documented through official transcripts on file with TMCC's Admissions and Records office before application to the program.|
Submit the completed application and documentation by March 1 of the current year to the TMCC Science Division Dean's Office (Dandini Campus, Red Mountain Building, Room 324) or by mail (it is recommended to request return receipt if mailing the application) to:
TMCC Science Division
Radiologic Technology Program
7000 Dandini Blvd., RDMT 324
Reno NV 89512
Selection to the Radiologic Technology Program will be based on information obtained from the admission requirements and the number of points the applicant receives.
Eligible students will be numerically ranked according to total points. Points will be awarded for:
Admission will be offered to the applicants on the list with the highest points. In the event of applicants having an equal number of points, the student's HESI score (without rounding) will be used to break the tie. If the HESI score does not resolve the tie, lots will be drawn to decide selection.
The HESI examination may only be taken once per year. HESI scores from other testing centers will not be accepted. Selection to the Radiologic Technology program is conducted annually. Applicants not selected must reapply for consideration the following year.
After being selected for admission, in response to a letter from the program coordinator, the student will submit the following pertinent documentation prior to the first day of class:
Progression in the program is contingent upon maintaining a grade of C (75%) or better in all Radiologic Technology courses. All Radiologic Technology courses (except RAD 101) must be taken in the sequence outlined in the Radiologic Technology curriculum.
General Education degree requirements must be completed before graduation from the program in order to earn the AAS degree in Radiologic Technology. Since classes may be schedule during both day and evening hours, the faculty recommends completion of as many General Education requirements as possible prior to selection to the program.
IS 101 must be completed prior to the spring semester of the first year in the program.
