Radiation Therapy professional course cohorts begin each Fall (September). Your admissions counselor will notify you of which Fall start date may be available when you apply.

Arts and sciences courses in the program start each Spring (January), Summer (May), and Fall (September). You may apply at any time for consideration for the next upcoming start date. 

Below we'll cover the application process and the criteria we look for when reviewing applications. You'll also be able to quickly reference the tuition and fees for this program, and find information about applying for financial aid.

  • Documentation of high school graduation, GED completion, or other state approved equivalency credential
  • Official college transcript(s) from all institutions attended (if applicable)
  • Complete the Clinical Site Acknowledgment form
  • Attend an information session
  • Write a 1-page essay. Your essay must: 
    • Describe the research you have completed regarding the differences within the radiologic science fields listed below. In your essay, write a brief description of each of the following: 
      • Radiation Therapist
      • Radiologic Technologist
