Please state why you would like to pursue a Radiologic Technology career and what qualities do you feel would make you a good candidate for our program.



The ATI TEAS exam is preferred to be taken at NSCC.  Students whose score reports reflect that they have tested more than two times or at another location other than NSCC must also submit an official TEAS transcript from AT. Additional charges may apply.

Applicants are limited to two attempts within a year (September 1 - August 31), regardless of the testing site and program to which they are applying.

Minimum required scores for ATI TEAS:  Reading = 69%, Math = 70%, Science = 50%, and English = no minimum


Communications Proficiency

There are many ways to demonstrate communications proficiency. If you have demonstrated proficiency with your SAT scores or Accuplacer testing from another institution, please upload that document to your application.  If you have demonstrated proficiency with your high school GPA or with college level courses, this will be updated upon review of your submitted materials.


Official transcripts from all Colleges or Universities previously attended

All official transcripts from previously attended Colleges/Universities must be submitted directly to NSCC and uploaded by Admissions staff.  If the College/University will give an official transcript directly to you, then have them do so but do NOT open the envelope.  Hand-delivering it to Enrollment is the most efficient way for you to ensure that receipt of transcripts do not hold up your application.  If you have previously submitted transcripts and have since completed courses or are currently registered for courses, then you need to submit an updated transcript.
