Potential applicants must complete one of two associate degree routes before being considered for enrollment: ROUTE 1 - Associates Degree Not Completed: Applicants not possessing an associates degree or higher may complete the nine core college courses through Ivy Tech Community College at the Madison, IN campus or one of its associated regional campuses (see the "Articulation Agreement with Ivy Tech Community College" section on pages 4 and 5 on the Program Description link), or may transfer credits for the core courses into Ivy Tech (with the knowledge that 15 credit hours must be completed through Ivy Tech) and may then apply to the KDH School of Radiologic Technology. Upon successful completion of the KDH School of Radiologic Technology certificate-based program and with successful completion of the courses required through Ivy Tech, the graduating student will receive an Associate of Science Degree in Imaging Sciences from Ivy Tech in addition to the certificate from KDH. ROUTE 2 - Associates Degree Already Completed: Applicants possessing an associates degree or higher must have taken the 15 hours of college credit-bearing general education courses (each course worth three credit hours - listed on Page 5 of the Program Description link under the "Non-Ivy Tech Associates Degree" section), either as part of their degree or in addition to their degree. NOTE: If all college course requirements are not completed by the application deadline of April 1, 2013, proof of enrollment and current grades of "C" or better in the incomplete course(s) is required by April 1, 2013. All required college courses and their transcripts must be completed prior to June 1, 2013. If the applicant is selected from admission, an updated transcript documenting the course grade must be presented to the program director by the June 1 deadline. Failure to submit a completed transcript by the deadline would result in the student forfeiting their seat in the class.
- Possess the physical ability to perform tasks required of radiographers, as written in the application (see the Printable Enrollment Application Link).
- Participate in a career observation day in the medical imaging department. Once the program director has received the completed application, the applicant will be notified to contact the clinical instructor of the program to schedule a career observation date. These are scheduled Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
- Submit a $25 non-refundable application fee. (Make checks payable to King's Daughters' Health.)

- Attend an interview with the admissions committee, if requested. Interviews are typically held in early May. Following the April 1 deadline, all applications are reviewed by the admissions committee of the program. Those applications that meet the published admissions standards are then evaluated in terms of academic potential. All applicants are rated on a point system based on their high school transcripts, college transcripts, ACT/SAT scores, and PSB scores. Based on this point system, interviews are granted to the top scoring half of the applicants. Interviews are held to determine the candidate's motivation, ability to communicate, ability to work with others, and realistic orientation to the field of radiologic technology. Six qualified students will be selected from those interviewed. Two alternates will also be selected, in the event that all six students do not enter the program.
