A successful applicant for admission to the Radiography Program must meet the Adventist University of Health Sciences (ADU) general admission requirements and:
Submit the Radiography Program Application, once admitted to the University. The application can be accessed at http://my.adu.edu.
Have a minimum cumulative high school unweighted GPA of 2.50 or have taken 12 or more college credits with a minimum GPA of 2.50 from a regionally accredited institution. GPAs presented to the admissions committee for each applicant will be a cumulative record of all college-level work. Applicants that have completed a minimum of 12 college-level credits at ADU and have completed the prerequisite courses by the application deadline will be given preference for program admission. Applicants should be advised that the prerequisite courses, College Algebra and Introduction to Microcomputers, must be completed by the program start date.
Have a minimum ACT composite score of 19. Applicants with 24 or more credits from a regionally-accredited college are exempt from taking the ACT.
Successfully complete College Algebra and Introduction to Microcomputers with a minimum grade of "C" (2.00).
Submit two recommendations on ADU Recommendation Forms. If an applicant to an undergraduate program has completed at least one trimester at Adventist University of Health Sciences (ADU) before being admitted to a program, one of the two recommendations must come from any ADU faculty member, adjunct professor, tutoring coordinator, chaplain, or academic coach/advisor. Special recommendation forms for this requirement are available in the Office of Enrollment Services.
Each applicant is required to write an essay as part of the admission process. The essay should address each of the following: the applicant's reasons for wanting to enter the Radiography program; the applicant's reasons for wanting to pursue this course of study at ADU, a faith-based institution, and future goals; the applicant's characteristics and abilities that qualify him or her for this profession; the applicant's motivation for choosing a career in Radiography; and the applicant's perception of how radiologic technologists contribute to healthcare and how an educational experience at ADU will enable the applicant to make future contributions. Essays should be typed using Times New Roman, 12-point black font, one to two pages in length, double spaced with one inch margins. Essays are reviewed for clarity, correct spelling and grammar, and content.
Admission into all professional programs is competitive. Each program has a maximum number of students that can be admitted each year. Students meeting the admission requirements for a given program qualify to be considered for admission to that program. However, due to the competitive nature of each program's admission process, meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Students may be given preferential consideration for admission to degree and certificate programs when they have successfully completed 12 college-level hours at ADU.
Each applicant accepted to an on-campus professional program is expected to pay a nonrefundable deposit of $200 to reserve his or her place in the program. The applicant’s acceptance letter will contain a deposit amount and deadline indicating when the deposit must be received by the University. Once the student enrolls in the program, this deposit will be applied toward the student’s account. Students who have paid the deposit, but decide not to enroll in the program, will forfeit the deposit. If that student is admitted to the same program at a later date, he or she will be required to pay the full deposit amount again. If an applicant is admitted to a program with prerequisites in progress and becomes ineligible for admission due to his or her grades, a full refund will be provided. A professional program deposit is not transferable to another department. Distance Education students are not required to pay a program deposit.
