- Students must submit a complete Radiologic Technology
Program application form. To request an application form see the contact information or download the Radiologic Technology Information packet below. Students
are required to complete the application packet and provide all official college transcripts, including an official transcript from FHSU if currently enrolled at FHSU.
In order to be considered for the next class starting in the summer
semester, we must receive your complete application packet by January 31.
- Students seriously considering the program are
strongly encouraged to arrange a visit to a radiology department.
We recommend that you spend several hours observing the activities
of the department so that you are better informed of the responsibilities
you will gradually assume during your radiography training. Although
a clinical visit is not required, preference will be given to
students with an understanding of radiologic technology.
- Students preparing for admission into the Radiologic
Technology Program must complete the list of pre-radiologic technology
courses before they will be considered eligible for the program. These
courses can be taken at FHSU or at any college as long as they are considered transferable
equivalent credits by the FHSU
Registrar. A letter grade of a 'C' or better is required for all pre-radiologic technology courses. Students are also required to have a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or better on a 4.0 scale.
- Before February 15th, the complete applications
will be thoroughly reviewed by the campus radiologic technology
faculty. Based on the application materials submitted, approximately
50-55 of the most qualified applicants will be invited for an
interview with the Program Selection Committee comprised of FHSU
faculty and clinicians. Prior to the interview, students will
be asked to make a prioritized list of the acceptable clinical
sites for their clinical experience from the following locations:
Garden City, Hays, Kansas City, Liberal,
Olathe, Salina, Abilene, and, Sterling, Colorado. Students may choose to list only
one or more of the clinical sites but should be aware that limiting
the acceptable clinical sites decreases their chances of being
accepted into the program. During the selection process, the program
tries to match the student with the clinical site, and if accepted
into the program, the student will be assigned to a clinical site
for the duration of the program.
- During the interview which lasts approximately
15 minutes, the Selection Committee will ask a series of questions
to assess the following:
In the two weeks following the interview, candidates
will be notified in writing whether or not they were accepted
into the program.
Students must be accepted into Fort Hays State
- How well does the candidate understand the field
of radiologic technology?
- How well will the candidate be able to interact
with patients and staff?
- Are there any reasons why the candidate would
not be able to successfully complete the program?
