Degree Requirements

Prerequisite Courses

Prerequisite courses must be completed prior to the start of classes for the professional component. A grade of "C" or better is considered a passing grade. All University policies must be adhered to including maintaining at least a 2.00 on a 4.00 grade point average. A total of 21 credits of prerequisite courses are required. See Indiana University Kokomo bulletin for prerequisites for general education courses.

Application Process

The Radiologic Technology Program at Indiana University Kokomo has limited enrollment based on standards set by JRCERT . Admission to the program is very competitive. Application to the program and/ or completion of the prerequisite courses does not guarantee admission into the professional portion of the program.

Process: Non-IU students should follow steps (1-7); IU students follow (3-7).

The Radiologic Technology program is a selective program. It is important that you closely follow the application steps and requirements that follow:

  1. Complete an admission application for Indiana University Kokomo in the Admissions Office.

  2. Mail official transcripts from previous college/university course work to the Admissions Office.  

  3. Complete the required general education prerequisites courses.

  4. Meet all clinical and physical requirements.

  5. Visit a radiology department and job shadow a technologist for a minimum of two eight-hour days. Visiting more than one radiology department is encouraged, but is not required. Students wishing to shadow at Howard Regional Health Center must read these instructions (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader).

  6. Submit typed responses to program application questions.

  7. Send application (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader) for the Radiography Program to the Program's Office.

Current CPR certification is required.

Program information will be sent to students via the U.S. Postal Service. It is the responsibility of students to follow-up on their application and the progress of the selection process. Inquiries should be directed to the Division of Allied Health Sciences office, Hunt Hall room 106, either in person, by telephone (765-455-9490) or by e-mail (Lauren Stewart)

Technical Standards for Radiologic Technology

Clinical and Physical Requirements

Students in the Radiologic Technology Program must meet the following standards while rotating through the clinical sites:

  1. Students must be free from contagious diseases and chemical dependence.

  2. Students must have had a physical examination by a medical doctor at their own expense and submit results to the program director.

  3. The physical exam must be repeated on or before the anniversary of admission into clinical portion of the program.

  4. Students must not have been convicted of a felony, without restoration of his or her civil rights.

  5. Students must meet the physical requirements below:

    • Standing - Standing is required 95-100 % of the time throughout the assigned clinical hours.  Essentially, the work can not be performed without the ability to stand for long periods of time.

    • Walking - Walking is required 90-100% of the time during the course of the assigned clinical hours.

    • Climbing - Climbing is sometimes required to move from unit to unit or floor to floor within an institution.

    • Pushing - Pushing is required for moving patients to and from the x-ray table and or department.

    • Pulling - Pulling is required for both short and long durations when moving patients onto tables and when transporting to and from units. The use of X-ray equipment including tubes, monitors and accessories may require significant physical exertion.

    • Lifting - Lifting of 25-50 lbs. AND over 50 lbs.  Most significant: must be able to assist patients to and from the x-ray table, wheelchair, and cart.

    • Carrying - Carrying is a constant physical demand.  Students will carry films, cassettes, folders, and supplies on a regular basis.

    • Exposure to Disease - Disease exposure may occur on a daily basis while in clinical education as students care for patients with known and unknown risk factors and potential infections or harmful diseases.

    • Handling Repulsive Tasks - Radiologic Technology students frequently are involved with handling and disposing of body secretions such as blood, stool, urine, etc. Having the responsibility of general cleaning and maintenance of an incontinent patient is a real possibility.

    • Working in Confined Places - Confined places include the processing darkroom and film file rooms, which are used daily.  Time spent in these areas can vary from 1 minute to more than an hour.  Must be able to work around constantly running water and low humming noises.

    • Exposure to Harmful Radiation - Radiation producing devices are used daily. 

    • Visual - 20-100 vision, correctable to 20-30 in one eye or 20/100 vision correctable to 20/40 in both eyes.

    • Auditory - The student must be able to respond to codes or verbal expressions from patients and physicians.

Students who feel they qualify for special accommodation in the clinical area based on the ADA  must register through the office of the University Division
