Radiologic Technology Application requirements and Minimum Criteria

Application Requirements and Minimum Criteria

  • Any student interested in applying to the Radiologic Technology program must first submit an application to Jackson State Community College through the college Admissions Office and meet all institution requirements. Some of these requirements may include submission of official high school and college/university transcripts, submission of official GED scores, submission of official ACT scores,. etc.
  • There is a separate application to the Radiologic Technology program. PLEASE DO NOT send Radiologic Technology program applications to the JSCC Admissions Office or vice versa! To avoid confusion and delays/missed deadlines, make sure to complete both applications (if you are not already enrolled at JSCC) and send each to their appropriate locations. 

To be considered for Radiologic Technology program admission, ALL applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • Obtain full admission status to JSCC to begin the fall semester after program application deadline.

  • Satisfy any remedial/developmental (Learning Support) coursework required due to ACT scores or placement test scores before the program application deadline.

  • Submit a complete Radiologic Technology program application to the Health Sciences department by the June 1st deadline.

  • Meet the minimum program criteria for admissions.

There are two ways students may meet the minimum program criteria for Radiologic Technology admissions:

First-time college students (with no college credit or less than 11 credit hours)

  • Must have scores of 19 on the composite ACT and 19 on the subsections.


Students with college experience

  • Have completed at least 11 semester hours of college credit (excluding Learning Support), with a minimum overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 out of 4.0.

Notes: The overall GPA is calculated by using EVERY college class taken at ALL accredited institutions of higher education attended. Ideally, this background should include college level mathematics and/or science courses, such as human anatomy and physiology which require laboratory sessions.

If a high school student has completed 11 hours of college level credit  (dual enrollment), then points will be caclucated under both categories and the one that earns the most points will be used in program admissions.
