Kettering College Classes Meeting Online, Faculty & Staff Working Remotely, Due to Coronavirus

Kettering College has moved all face-to-face classes and business operations online as we take precautions to keep our students, faculty, and staff safe during the current novel coronavirus pandemic.

All student activities & events, including those on campus are canceled until further notice.

Student Services (Admissions, Financial Aid, and Records), and Academic Support (tutoring, Writing Center, career services, and advising) have also moved online. It is still their priority to serve students, answer questions, and enroll students for the upcoming semesters.

    • Radiologic Technology Grading Policy

      The following grade scale will be used in all Radiologic Technology courses with the prefix of RTCA:

      A                     95 – 100

      A-                    90 – 94

      B+                   87 – 89

      B                     84 – 86

      B-                    80 – 83

      C+                   77 – 79

      C                     75 – 76 (minimum passing grade)

      C-                    70 – 74

      D                     60 – 69

      F                      59 and below

       

      Note:  Below 75% is a failing grade in a professional (RTCA) course.  In addition, a minimum grade of “C” must be earned in all coursework—professional and non-professional (Arts and Science)—must be maintained.

Radiologic Sciences – Clinical Education

The radiologic sciences and imaging programs offer a wide variety of clinical education sites. These include hospitals, independent imaging centers, and physician offices. Clinical hours may vary from site to site and will include evening rotations for radiologic technology students. These assignments will be within a 70-mile radius of the College. Students must be provide their own reliable transportation to clinical education sites.

Applicants to any of the radiologic sciences and imaging programs must realize that each program is limited in size by its credentialing agencies and the availability of clinical rotations. It is not possible to accept more students than accrediting agencies approve and the clinical education sites permit. Each student entering one of the radiologic sciences and imaging programs must be present current immunization verification that meets the Kettering College requirements. (Some clinical sites may have additional health requirements and require background checks.)

If circumstances warrant, the student may be granted a period of time longer than five semesters to complete the clinical competencies. The student shall not exceed 40 hours of combined clinical experience and didactic contact hours per week. No more than 25 percent of the clinical time will be scheduled during the evenings
