Certificates in Advanced Imaging Admission Requirements

Applicants to the advanced imaging majors will satisfy the following criteria to be considered for admission:

  1. Meet all admission requirements for Kettering College.
  2. GPA requirement of a 2.5
  3. Provide evidence of current certification by ARRT, ARDMS, or NMTCB in radiologic technology, sonography, nuclear medicine, or radiation therapy. Only ARRT-certified radiographers are permitted to perform diagnostic computed tomography (CT) procedures in the state of Ohio; consequently, Kettering accepts only ARRT-certified radiographers into the CT program. Additional information on this requirement can be obtained here on the Ohio Department of Health website.
  4. Request and pay to have a background check performed by a College-approved service no more than six months prior to beginning the clinical experience. Please contact the admissions office for approved service contact information. Commencement of the clinical portion of the program is contingent upon successful clearance of the background check.
  5. Sectional Anatomy is a prerequisite course for the CT and MRI programs.

Note: It is recommended that all students entering radiologic sciences and imaging programs have computer skills that enable them to use Windows, word processing, spreadsheet, and PowerPoint operations. Please refer to specific course descriptions for more details.
