Radiography at AC
The radiography program accepted students in the summer of 1977 for the first time and has continued entering one class every year since that time. Program acceptance occurs at the end of Summer Session II each year for the fall semester. The Grade Point Average on [six] prerequisite courses determines the order of acceptance from the annual applicant pool.
Program faculty should be contacted as soon as an applicant decides to apply. The faculty advises applicants about the TSI assessment and PAA and the prerequisites required for selection into the program. The faculty will help each applicant establish a plan to complete admission requirements and enter the program at the student's own pace.
1. Application and acceptance to Angelina College.
2. Must be Texas Success Initiative (TSI) complete.
3. Submit passing TSI scores, proof of TSI exemption, or Accuplacer results to health careers secretary in HC II, Room 128.
4. Annually attend an information session to obtain a program application and/or information.
5. Submit completed application for the radiography program, completed physical health form, receive appropriate immunizations as mandated by the Texas Department of State Health Services for health care workers, and provide proof of current 2 year American Heart Association CPR card no later than May 1st each year for August consideration. All requested information must be received by the program in order for the application to be complete. The hepatitis B series (3 shots in 6 months) must be completed by the first clinical day of the Fall semester.
6. Complete all prerequisite courses prior to the designated date:
BIOL 2404 – Human A & P (General)
ENGL 1301 – Composition
PSYC 2301 – General Psychology
MATH 1314 – College Algebra OR
MATH 1332 - Contemporary Math
RADR 1202 – Radiographic Image Evaluation I
RADR 1203 – Patient Care
Prerequisite courses may be taken only twice for selection consideration. If a prerequisite course is taken more than twice, only the second grade will be calculated in the cumulative GPA for prerequisite courses. Students who receive a grade of “D” or “F” in RADR 1202 or RADR 1203 will not be eligible for consideration.
7.Submit official college transcript(s) indicating completion of prerequisite courses before the August decision date.
8. Acceptance into the radiography program is limited. Applicants will be ranked and selected based on the following criteria:
a) Completion of all requirements by published deadlines
b) Cumulative GPA in BIOL 2404, ENGL 1301, PSYC 2301, MATH 1314 or MATH 1332; RADR 1202, RADR 1203. Calculation of the GPA is accomplished after the end of the second Summer Session each year with students ranked in descending numerical order. Thirty-five applicants (35) with the highest GPA in the prerequisite courses will be scheduled for a personal interview to determine the students that will be accepted for “conditional” program admission. In case of GPA tie(s), the following items will be used for final selection: students with higher grades in MATH 1314 or MATH 1332; BIOL 2404, RADR 1202 AND RADR 1203 will receive greater consideration.
c) “Conditional” program admission is based on the cumulative GPA in the prerequisite courses and the individual interview. The Radiography program currently accepts 20-28 students per year.)
9. Applicants will be notified of “conditional” admission decisions by letter prior to Fall registration.
10. Upon “conditional” acceptance to the program, a random drug screen and background check will be done at the student’s expense (approximately $80.00).
11. The drug screen and background check must be negative to receive “full” acceptance into the program.

How do I transfer credits and who decides what will transfer?
Any student who requests transfer into the Radiography Program must have earned at least a "C" in all transfer courses. Scholastic requirements outlined in the Angelina College General Bulletin will also govern the eligibility of the applicant for admission. Further consideration is based on the student submitting: (1) a letter of status from the Program Coordinator of previous school, (2) a comprehensive description of Radiography courses completed, (3) evidence of maintaining an overall "C" (2.0) GPA at previous school, and (4) two references from former instructors regarding clinical performance.
These are courses that must be completed before admission to the radiography program can be considered. If a student takes a prerequisite course more than two times, only the second grade will be considered for GPA calculation. Applicants who desire admission to the program for Fall Semester must have completed all prerequisites by the end of Summer Session II of the same year.
Selection of the number of authorized students (between 20 to 28) is based upon the cumulative GPA of the prerequisite courses. Calculation of the GPA is accomplished after the end of the second Summer Session each year with students ranked in descending numerical order. In case of GPA tie(s), the following items will be used for final selection: (1) students with higher grades in MATH 1314 OR MATH 1332, BIOL 2404, RADR 1202, and RADR 1203 will receive greater consideration, and (2) a personal interview with Radiography faculty members.
