Admission to Georgia Southern University does not guarantee admission to the tracks in Radiologic Sciences. The Department has a separate formal admissions process in addition to the admission process for the university. Applicants are required to submit a formal application to the program of interest and transcripts of all college and technical school course work.
The deadline for submission of the application and items listed below is March 1 of each year. Please note this due date does NOT apply to the Bridge Program. You may apply to the Bridge Program at any time.
Essential Functions Requirement
All potential and enrolled students in any of the tracks in the Radiologic Sciences program must meet intellectual, physical and social competencies required to provide safe client care. We have documented a list of essential skills and minimum physical capacity required to perform the duties of radiation and imaging science practitioners. These functions reflect performance abilities and characteristics that are also necessary to successfully complete the requirements of our programs. Prior to submitting an application, be sure to read Essential Skills and Minimum Physical Requirements for success in our programs.
