Description

The Bachelor of Radiologic and Imaging Sciences Technology degree is designed for students pursuing studies related to medical imaging for such job positions as CT technologist, MRI technologist, Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Radiation Therapy. Job opportunities for CT and MRI technologists, sonographers and therapists exist in hospitals, surgical centers, clinics, physician offices and other healthcare facilities. .

The Radiologic and Imaging Sciences major comprising the following concentrations:

  • Computed Tomography uses specialized x-ray equipment to create sectional images of the human body. Each cross sectional image reveals complex information about body structures that are used for a variety of reasons (i.e., diagnostic, treatment planning, interventional or screening).
    • Computed Tomography concentration for students who completed an A.A.S. degree in Radiologic Technology
    • Computed Tomography concentration for students who completed a hospital-based certificate or A.T.S. degree in Radiologic Technology and American Registry of Radiologic Technologist certification examination
  • Diagnostic Medical Sonography uses medical ultrasound (high frequency sound waves that produce images of internal structures) to diagnose a variety of conditions and diseases, as well as monitor fetal development.
    • Diagnostic Medical Sonography concentration for new students (freshmen) and students who completed an associate degree
    • Diagnostic Medical Sonography concentration for students who completed an A.A.S. degree in Radiologic Technology
    • Diagnostic Medical Sonography concentration for students who completed a hospital-based certificate program or A.T.S. degree in Radiologic Technology and American Registry of Radiologic Technologist certification examination
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses a powerful magnet, radio waves, and computers to create sectional images of the human body. The images reveal complex information about body structures and the chemical changes that occur as a result of the onset of disease.
    • Magnetic Resonance Imaging concentration for students who completed an A.A.S. degree in Radiologic Technology
    • Magnetic Resonance Imaging concentration for students who completed a hospital-based certificate or A.T.S. degree in Radiologic Technology and American Registry of Radiologic Technologist certification examination
  • Radiation Therapy uses specialized high energy treatment units to administer therapeutic doses of radiation to cancer patients.
    • Radiation Therapy concentration for new students (freshmen) and students who completed an associate degree
    • Radiation Therapy concentration for students who completed an A.A.S. degree in Radiologic Technology
    • Radiation Therapy concentration for students who completed a hospital-based certificate program or A.T.S. degree in Radiologic Technology and American Registry of Radiologic Technologist certification examination

Admission Requirements

The university affirmatively strives to provide educational opportunities and access to students with varied backgrounds, those with special talents and adult students who graduated from high school three or more years ago.

Freshman Students on the Kent Campus: The freshman admission policy on the Kent Campus is selective. Admission decisions are based upon the following: cumulative grade point average, ACT and/or SAT scores, strength of high school college preparatory curriculum and grade trends. The Admissions Office at the Kent Campus may defer the admission of students who do not meet admissions criteria but who demonstrate areas of promise for successful college study. Deferred applicants may begin their college coursework at one of seven Regional Campuses of Kent State University. For more information on admissions, including additional requirements for some academic programs, visit the admissions website for new freshmen.

Freshman Students on the Regional Campuses:  Kent State campuses at Ashtabula, East Liverpool, Geauga, Salem, Stark, Trumbull and Tuscarawas, as well as the Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg, have open enrollment admission for students who hold a high school diploma, GED or equivalent.

English Language Proficiency Requirements for International Students: All international students must provide proof of English language proficiency (unless they meet specific exceptions) by earning a minimum 525 TOEFL score (71 on the Internet-based version), minimum 75 MELAB score, minimum 6.0 IELTS score or minimum 48 PTE Academic score, or by completing the ELS level 112 Intensive Program. For more information on international admission, visit the Office of Global Education’s admission website.

Transfer, Transitioning and Former Students: For more information about admission criteria for transfer, transitioning and former students, please visit the admissions website.

All seven of Kent State’s regional campuses are accessible to students who hold a high school diploma or GED. Admission decisions are based on cumulative grade point average, ACT and/or SAT scores, strength of high school college preparatory curriculum and grade trends. Check with the Regional Campus Admissions Offices to determine application requirements, as they may differ among campuses.

Acceptance to technical study is a selective process due to the limited number of students approved for each clinical education setting. Criteria for acceptance are the following:

  • Completion of required non-radiologic and imaging sciences (RIS) courses, e.g., biology, chemistry, mathematics, psychology, Kent Core courses
  • Minimum 2.750 overall GPA

Graduation Requirements

Minimum Major GPA Minimum Overall GPA
2.750 2.000
  • Students must complete all radiologic and imaging sciences (RIS) courses with a minimum C grade.
  • Students must complete all academic and clinical competencies in their core concentration.
