Students must complete all appropriate developmental coursework or retake the section of ASSET, ACCUPLACER, COMPASS, or THEA and score high enough to place into college-level courses.
To determine your Student Success Initiative (SSI) status, see a college advisor. Students must complete ENGL 1301, MATH 1314, PHYS 1401 or 1410, BIOL 2401 and 2402 prior to the first DMSO/DSAE course in the AAS degree. RADR 1313 and RADR 2305 may be substituted for the PHYS course requirement.
Students who currently hold an ARRT certification or a two-year degree in a patient care health program are eligible for admission to the certificate program. Students who do not hold an ARRT certification or a two-year degree in a patient care health program would apply for the AAS in DMS or Echocardiography.
Clinical space is limited, so students are admitted on a competitive basis. In addition to the general admission requirements of the LSCS, the following requirements must be met in order to apply for admission to the Diagnostic Medical Sonography AAS programs.
Applicants who have failed or withdrawn from any LSCS sonography program will be considered on an individual basis. Readmission is not automatic. It is based on remediation of an identified problem area and space availability. Students who wish to be readmitted must interview with the program’s Readmission Committee and follow current readmission guidelines.
At this interview, the student will be asked to describe what steps have been taken in the intervening months to improve the chance of success and an action plan for improvement of academic and/or clinical performance. In addition, students seeking readmission must submit three letters of their standing from the prior sonography program. One letter should be a “report of status” from the former program director. Readmission into the sonography program must occur within one year of non-completion. A student may be readmitted into the sonography one time only.
An individual’s request to transfer into any LSCS sonography program will be reviewed on an individual basis by the program director.
Class placement is based on previous achievement and space availability. Admission is considered only if prior program enrollment has been within one (1) year.
