Radiologic Technology Program Admissions


To be eligible for admission to the Radiologic Technology Program, applicants will be evaluated and ranked based on the following criteria and point system. Points are given based on grades earned in the courses listed below and the applicant’s G.P.A. (grade point average) outlined below. Applicants with the most points will be offered admission to the program.

  1. Graduation from an approved high school or acceptable equivalent preparation.
  2. Completion of the following courses with a minimum grade of C (40% of rank):
    1. College Algebra (MAT* 137  or equivalent)
    2. Anatomy and Physiology I with Laboratory (BIO* 211  or equivalent)
    3. Anatomy & Physiology II with Laboratory (BIO* 212  or equivalent)
    4. English Composition (ENG* 101  or equivalent)
      A/A+ (7)
      A- (6)
      B+ (5)
      B (4)
      B- (3)
      C+ (2)
      C (1)
  3. TEAS score (20% of rank). Applicants must have an adjusted individual total score of 53.3% or higher. Test scores will be valid for three years from the testing date (i.e. June 1, 2018 - June 1, 2021). Points will be awarded based off of the difference in your score to the minimum required score. For example, A TEAS score of 63.3% will receive 10 points (63.3-53.3).
  4. Radiologic Technology G.P.A. (40% of rank) based only on the college courses that meet the Radiologic Technology admissions requirements and Radiologic Technology program curriculum requirements. This may differ from your college G.P.A. (Please note: if an applicant is using a course from a Fresh Start semester to meet a Radiologic Technology admission or program curriculum requirement, that. course will count in the calculation of the applicant’s Radiologic Technology G.P.A.)
  5. Applicants who have previously applied to the Radiologic Technology program (1 point).
  6. Submit a letter requesting consideration for admission into the Radiologic Technology Program to the Admissions Office no later than June 1. The letter should include your banner ID, email address, and phone number. Please submit the letter to CA-Admissions@Capitalcc.edu or in person to the Admissions Desk on the 2nd floor.

Applicants must submit to the Admissions Office all official transcripts (high school and college courses, if any; SAT, if scores are not recorded on other transcripts) by the June 1 application deadline.

Because enrollment is limited, not all qualified applicants will be accepted. Admissions decisions will be based on academic standing and the point system outlined above. Applicants will be notified of their status by email by July 1. Final acceptance is contingent upon documentation of a physical examination, and required immunizations.

Completed application must be submitted by June 1 each year. Files must be complete before applicants can be considered. Decision letters will be sent before July 1 to the applicant’s Capital Community College email address.

TEAS

The TEAS is a multiple choice test that evaluates essential academic skills: math, science, reading, and English. It is recommended that applicants review biology, chemistry, and math content in preparation for taking the TEAS. The test will take approximately 3½ hours to complete. Applicants cannot reschedule their test date. Testing fees are non-refundable.

Applicants must obtain an adjusted individual total score of 53.3% or higher on either test to be considered for admission. Tests taken prior to June 1, 2018 will not be accepted.

Applicants may retake the TEAS as many times as desired. The CT-CCNP will use the applicant’s highest TEAS score when determining eligibility.

The TEAS is administered at Capital, Gateway, Naugatuck Valley, Northwestern CT, Norwalk and Three Rivers. If the TEAS is taken at a site other than one of the Connecticut Community Colleges, applicants must have official results sent by ATI by the application deadline of June 1, 2021. Effective July 1, 2015, all community college testing sites began charging a proctor fee in addition to ATI’s registration fee. More information on the proctor fee will be provided at the time of registration for the TEAS.
