Radiologic Technology Program
A first-year student must maintain an overall GPA of 2.5 for eligibility to move into the professional portion of the curriculum in the fall of sophomore year. Only students who successfully complete all required courses during the first (freshman) year, with a minimum 2.5 GPA, are eligible to enter the professional portion of the radiography (RAD) curriculum. Students who fail to achieve the 2.5 minimum GPA and lose their professional RAD program eligibility are encouraged to reapply for eligibility once the disqualifying item(s) have been rectified.
Opportunities for transfer students are limited and occur only on a space-available basis. A minimal number of slots may open for transfer (non-freshman) applicants to the RAD program each year. Students wishing to transfer from other majors or colleges of the University of Hartford must have completed all prior coursework with a minimum GPA of 2.5. Transfer students must also have completed the following courses:
- One college-level math course (3 credits) at the algebra level or higher
- One college-level course, with lab in each of the following sciences: general biology (4 credits), general chemistry (4 credits), and general physics (4 credits)
Once these criteria have been met, students who are interested in placing their name on a waiting list for consideration must do so by contacting the Radiologic Technology program director at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860.768.5752. Decisions on waiting-list applicants are made in May for the fall semester and are based solely on achieved GPA. The process for transfer application, wait-listing, and selection to the RAD program applies to transfer students from both within and outside the University of Hartford.
All applicants to the program are advised to review the rules and regulations of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) at www.arrt.org and the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) Code of Ethics at www.asrt.org. Prior to application to the RAD program, students are encouraged to review the Ethics Requirements for ARRT Certification at www.arrt.org/certification.
The ARRT may deny eligibility to those previously convicted of certain crimes, including both felonies and misdemeanors. For further information regarding the process to determine eligibility, contact the ARRT at 1225 Northland Drive, St. Paul, MN 55120.
