Radiologic Technology Admissions
Delgado Community College is an open admissions college; however, acceptance into
the Radiologic Technology Program is by selection. The Admissions Committee for the
RADT Program reviews and evaluates each application on an impartial basis. Meeting
the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission into the program.
Students wishing to apply for admission to the RADT Program must submit a completed RADT application to the Division of Allied Health no later than February 15. Students are chosen on the basis of courses completed by the end of the fall semester prior to application deadline.
Applicants who are eligible for admission to the RADT program must meet the following criteria:
- Possess a high school diploma or equivalent.
- Achieve a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 in all college courses.
- Successful completion of prerequisite courses. Prerequisite courses: BIOL 251, BIOL 253 and MATH 120
