Admission Requirements

GENERAL PROGRAM REQUIREMENT

If you have ever been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor, or have been subjected to a sanction as a result of a violation of an academic honor code or suspended or dismissed by an educational program designed to meet ARRT certification requirements, you must check with the New York State Department of Health and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists to verify that you satisfy the requirements for New York State Licensing and the National Registry.

A criminal conviction and/or the use of illegal drugs may impede or bar entry into your chosen field of study. You should be aware that clinical and hospital sites may reject a student, or remove a student from their site if a criminal record is found or if a positive drug test is noted. Inability to gain clinical or field work will result in the inability to meet program objectives and outcomes. Inability to meet objectives and outcomes may result in your failure to complete the program requirements, thus requiring your withdrawal from the program. In addition, the presence of a criminal conviction may also prevent your completion of the required state or federal licensure, certification or registration process.

ADMISSIONS AND APPLICATION

Application to the Radiologic Technology Program is a two-step process.

The first step is acceptance to LIU Post. You can apply for admission to LIU Post at My LIU or by using the Apply Now button in the upper right-hand corner of this page. For more information on the application process, visit the Admissions Office home page.

Admission requirements include the following:

  • Incoming freshmen must have a solid B average (3.0 or 82-85 grade point average) and an average SAT score of 1000 (Critical Reading and Math combined) or ACT Composite of 20 or above.
  • Transfer students must have completed more than 24 college credits. A minimum college G.P.A. of 2.5 is required for application review. If you have completed fewer than 24 credits, you must also submit high school transcripts and SAT/ACT scores.

The second step requires a formal application to the Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology Program. Upon acceptance to LIU Post, interested students may obtain an application packet for the Radiologic Technology Program by calling 516-299-2743.

The program's admission procedure includes a separate application form, letters of reference, a personal statement, an entrance examination and an interview with members of the Radiologic Technology Admissions Committee. The Radiologic Technology Admissions Committee will make the final selections of candidates who are admitted into the program.

Students enter the professional portion of the program in the fall semester of their junior year. Freshmen and transfer students desiring to enter the program must have completed 64 academic credits of liberal arts and sciences coursework to be eligible for entrance to the Radiologic Technology Program. Students are advised to contact the program office starting in January prior to the fall semester in which they wish to enter.

Admission to the Radiologic Technology Program is highly competitive. Students must have achieved a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 with a demonstrated interest in science and health and must complete one academic year of Anatomy and Physiology with lab, a basic math (1 semester of algebra or higher), and a basic computer course prior to starting the program.
