Radiologic Technology Information/Screening Session Sign Up
The final Information/Screening Session for the 2017 application cycle was held on January 5, 2017. There will be no more sessions scheduled for this application cycle.
Please check back for available Information/Screening sessions late July, 2017 for the 2018 application cycle. There will be a minimum of three sessions each month beginning in August and running through December. One final session will be scheduled in early January, 2018 to allow sufficient time to complete the application process by the deadline of February 1, 2018. Most sessions are held on the Columbia Campus. Radiology courses are ONLY offered on the Columbia Campus.
Read all instructions and information carefully.
The first step in applying to the Radiologic Technology program is to sign up for a required Information/screening session. These sessions are offered by program faculty periodically throughout the application period. Applicants should expect the session to take 1-2 hours, depending on the size of the group. It is recommended that applicants know their Learning Support placement status prior to attending the information/screening session. Faculty members provide individual advising at the conclusion of the session regarding timelines for eligibility to apply to the program. To be eligible to apply to the program, Learning Support requirements must be completed by the end of the fall semester prior to the year in which admission is sought. The candidate must possess a cumulative college level GPA of 2.5 or better and a minimum ACT composite score of 19 (regardless of applicant age.) The high school GPA is used for applicants who have not earned at least 12 hours of college level credit. At the information/screening session, faculty will provide information about the program and the profession, the application process, distribute all paperwork relative to application, and discuss the required clinical observation.
Applicants are encouraged to attend the required information/screening session as early as possible. To allow time for all application materials to reach program offices by the annual deadline of February 1, the last information/screening is scheduled in early January. At that point, it becomes impossible for candidates to meet the application requirements due to time constraints. Applicants must have time after the information/screening session to schedule and complete the mandatory observation and submit all required paperwork.
If you have school and work conflicts with the information/screening options offered, please check back later. Dates/times are added regularly throughout the fall semester.
ALL applicants for the 2017 application cycle MUST attend a Required RAD Information/Screening session. This includes those applicants who have previously applied.

What should I bring to Required RAD Information/Screening?
It is extremely helpful if you have applied to Columbia State and completed the Learning Support placement process before attending the information/screening session. If you have transfer credit that has not been evaluated through the Admissions process, bring a copy of your transcript(s) to assist faculty in assessing your eligibility. Also bring your ACT scores if not already officially submitted to Columbia State.
Notify faculty in advance if you discover you will be unable to attend the scheduled session or change your mind about coming. To select a different date, go back through the sign up process and cancel the previous registration.
The most current information on the Radiologic Technology program is provided electronically via the website. The faculty member conducting the session you selected will provide paper copies of all necessary materials.
