Academic Standards & Graduation Requirements
Students are given frequent oral, written and practical examinations and will be expected to complete all class and laboratory assignments on time. Student progress is evaluated frequently by the faculty. Students whose academic performance, clinical practice, attitude or personal qualities are not commensurate with program standards will be counseled immediately.
Although informal evaluation sessions are conducted as often as needed, formal evaluation of all aspects of student progress are held at the end of each semester. Individual instruction, remedial assignments and examinations are given as appropriate for any individual who is not making satisfactory progress.
All courses taught by program faculty will be graded according to the following schedule:
F below 65%
A minimum grade average of “C” in all coursework in both the didactic and clinical settings is required to maintain normal progress. Any student who does not satisfy the minimal academic requirements will be counseled and may be subject to academic probation.
To be eligible to receive a certificate of graduation, the prospective graduate must meet the following requirements:
- Candidate must complete all academic courses and the clinical competency program according to the established criteria. A candidate with incomplete records in either of these areas shall not be granted a diploma and will not be authorized by the program director as meeting the educational requirements for certification by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
- Candidate must satisfactorily complete the two years of training with a minimum average of “C” in all courses, both didactic and clinical.
- Candidate has presented evidence of successful mastery of the program’s terminal competencies.
- Candidate is competent in all routine procedures and techniques.
- Candidate has made up all absences in excess of that allowed by the program.
- Candidate has met all financial obligations to the program.
- Candidate demonstrates personal characteristics appropriate for a professional radiographer.
- Candidate must return all hospital property including: Identification badge, radiation monitoring badges, time and attendance badge, school property, such as textbooks and learning CDs.
Failure to fully complete the program requirements prior to graduation will require the candidate to remain after graduation until all requirements are satisfied. A signed certificate will then be awarded, and the A.R.R.T. will be notified of the student’s program completion.
Students meeting the graduation requirements are awarded a certificate of completion, making them eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certification examination, and licensure by the Indiana State Department of Health, Radiologic Sciences Division.
