Students who wish to be readmitted must first visit with the Chair of the Radiologic Sciences Department. Second, they must submit a letter to the Program Admissions committee stating desire for readmission, factors affecting their failure in the program, and how issues and problems will be resolved upon readmission.
Readmission is dependent on available places in the desired class. Failed courses must be repeated. It is highly recommended that all passed Radiologic Sciences AAS courses be attended to refresh information. Retention and remediation activities will be determined individually for each student by the Admissions Committee based upon each student’s previous academic history with the program.
