Advanced Medical Imaging Technology

Admission Requirements

High School Students:

It is recommended that students entering from high school have a high school GPA of at least 3.0 and the following test scores: ACT: 22 Math/22 Combined and/or SAT: 510 Math/ 1020 Combined (excluding the Writing). UC admits students based on academic and non-academic factors. For more information, please visit the UC Admission Requirements website.

Transfer/Transition Applicants:

Transfer students from other accredited colleges or universities may apply for admission. Only courses in which the applicant earned a C- or better and which were completed within 10 years of the date of application will be considered for transfer credit. Students must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA to be admitted to the AMIT program.

Those declaring Advanced Medical Imaging Technology as their major are not guaranteed admission to the professional curriculum. Completion of the professional curriculum is necessary for graduation, board examination eligibility, and eventual employment. Students interested in transferring to the Advanced Medical Imaging Technology program should contact the academic advising offices of the College of Allied Health Sciences.

Secondary Admissions Process:

Upon successful completion of all freshman- and sophomore-year requirements, students may enter the professional curriculum of the program (junior and senior years). This is a competitive process. Not all students will be accepted into the professional curriculum.

Program faculty consider the quality of the application, overall GPA, math and science GPA and an interview/project in the selection process. 

Students wishing to apply must have a 2.8 overall GPA or higher. No grades below C- in math or the sciences are accepted.

Students may request application materials for the clinical portion of the program by contacting the Advanced Medical Imaging Technology program office at (513) 558-​3515.  Applications are due the first day of Spring semester of the sophomore year (the year before the student wishes to enter the professional curriculum). 

Due to the standards set forth by national accrediting agencies, professional curriculum students attend classes for 12 consecutive months (i.e., Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters).  Upon acceptance into the professional curriculum students will study both: 

  • Nuclear Medicine Technology, a medical specialty that uses stable and radioactive isotopes in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. 
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging, a medical specialty that uses magnetic fields and their properties to diagnose disease and analyze human anatomy.
