How to Apply
Admission to the Radiologic Science program is a competitive process and is separate from the student's admission to ETSU. A limited number of students are admitted annually. Please note that the program has one start date per year, and that is for the fall semester. Each applicant is evaluated on the basis of academic record, clinical observation, and personal interview.
Students must be admitted both to the university and to the program, requiring separate application processes. Admission to the university does not ensure admission to the program.
Application deadline is March 1. Please read Application Process section below before applying. Apply Here
All students interest in applying to the Radiologic Science program should contact our on-campus advisor, Emily Daugherty, to schedule an advisement appointment. Periodic advising is recommended.
