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.
      or
    • A previous bachelor's of science (BS) degree in a medically-related major.
  • 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: Program Options and Deadlines

Trying to decide if a traditional program or independent study is right for you?  Check out this comparison chart on bachelor program options. 

Advanced Radiologic Sciences (non-clinical)

There is no deadline for the non-clinical Advanced Radiologic Sciences program.  Applications are accepted year-round. 

Out-of-state applicants interested in the non-clinical Advanced Radiologic Sciences Program should consider our Independent Study option.

If applying for programs through Independent Study, please contact the Independent Study Manager, Pamela Berg at PBerg@weber.edu, for more information regarding application and deadline.

Campus Programs - Utah Residents

All Campus programs have an application deadline of January 10th.  Campus student selection typically occurs during the last week of March.

If you are wanting to be assigned a clinical site in Utah, you should submit the CAMPUS application.

Regional Programs - Residing Outside of Utah

All Regional programs have an application deadline of May 1st. 

Regional applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their application as early as possible. Waiting until the May 1st deadline may result in a delay in your application review.

Regional applicants are required to secure a clinical site 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.


*Radiation Therapy applications submitted after May 1 will be considered on an individual basis by Dr. Casey Neville.  (Caseyneville@weber.edu or 801-626-6068 for questions.)

Selection Process

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.  

Please Note: All correspondence from the Radiologic Sciences Department will be sent to your Weber student email address, including interview dates. Be sure you know how to access your Weber student email account.
