Apply for admission to WSU
Bachelor of Science (BS) Specialty Application Process
How to Apply
Step 1: Apply to WSU
Step 2: Review the Prerequisites
- Applicants must be ARRT certified, or in the final semester of earning their certification, to apply.
- If you are not ARRT certified, you should apply to our associate's program.
- The sonography program prerequisites are also satisfied by the following:
- AAS or AS in Nursing or Respiratory Therapy.
- A previous bachelor's of science (BS) degree in a medically-related major.
- AAS or AS in Nursing or Respiratory Therapy.
- In addition to your AAS in radiography, it is highly suggested that you also complete an AA or AS before starting a program. While not required for admission into a Radiologic Sciences program, a previous AA, AS, or bachelor's degree will fulfill Weber State University's general education requirements for a bachelor's degree.
Step 3: Fill out an application
Entry into a specialty program requires a separate application.
Out-of-state applicants interested in the non-clinical Advanced Radiologic Sciences Program should consider our Independent Study option.
Which application should I submit?
- If you want to earn a bachelor's degree without certifying in a new modality, you should submit the Advanced Radiologic Sciences (Non-Clinical) application.
- If you are wanting to be assigned a clinical site in Utah, you should submit the CAMPUS version of the appropriate application.
- If you have a clinical site outside of Utah, you should submit the REGIONAL version of the appropriate application.
- REGIONAL APPLICANTS: you should have a clinical site ready BEFORE you apply. Regional applications without a clinical site will not be accepted. Due to California state law, we cannot accept Regional applicants who have clinical sites in California.

A committee comprised of WSU faculty and representatives from health care facilities affiliated with the university determines who is accepted to our program. Selection is based on a point system; you receive points based on factors including grade point average, references (forms included with the application) and an interview. Students who earn the most points, adhering to the criteria, will be accepted. The number of students accepted is determined by the number of students our affiliated health care facilities are able to accommodate for clinical hours.
If you are not initially accepted, you may be accepted as an alternate if another student decides not to enter the program.
If you are accepted to more than one specialty program, you may select the program you wish to pursue. You may not pursue multiple programs consecutively.
The selection of students adheres to all state and federal laws and university policies concerning discrimination and fairness in the selection process. WSU strives to include a diversity of cultures and perspectives, as it enriches the learning environment for all students.
