Medical Imaging Application Process

Applications may be submitted prior to completing all course requirements, as listed below:

  • Minimum of four math/science requirements successfully completed prior to admission
  • Minimum overall GPA of 2.5 and math/science GPA of 2.4 for admission eligibility
  • All prerequisite courses completed by second summer session of the year admitted

Applicants will be reviewed using the following criteria:

  • Clarity and quality of personal statement
  • Academic progress and promise
  • Supportive references
  • Knowledge of the field

Students selected as qualified applicants by academic record and admissions information will be required to complete on-site oral and written interviews. The written interview covers topics relative to the applicant’s admissions information, radiologic science, health care, and personal goals. The Division will schedule interview appointments with admission candidates.

Application Instructions

Refer to specific application instructions below, based on your status.

Current UNC-Chapel Hill Students:

Apply

Click the button above. In the “other academic” dropdown, select “Apply for Change of Major.” Once you complete and submit this request, you will receive an email with instructions for completing your application. Download the RADI Supplemental Form to upload with your application.

Transfer Students:

Apply

You must apply to UNC and to the RADI program through Undergraduate Admissions. When you indicate that you are applying to the RADI program, you should also get the RADI-specific questions on your application.

The B.S. in Radiologic Science Program does not award credit for radiography courses or clinical experience completed at another radiography program. A student who started a radiography program elsewhere and who wants to complete the B.S. in Radiologic Science program may apply as a transfer student to begin the program. The student will not receive credit for radiography courses or clinical experiences previously completed.

Radiologic Technologists with Radiography Certification:

The B.S. in Radiologic Science Program is available to the radiologic technologist who holds current Radiography certification from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and who has completed an accredited radiography program. Any interested radiologic technologists should contact Joy Renner or (919) 966-5147 for further information and advisement on prerequisite courses and the program of study.

Application Deadlines

The Division uses three admissions review periods to admit approximately twenty students to the Medical Imaging program. Eligible students who are not selected during the first admissions review period will be reviewed automatically for admission during subsequent admissions review periods.
Upon submission of a completed application, qualified candidates will be contacted to schedule written and oral interviews.
