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.
