Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging Technology

Selection Process

Selection Process

Selection into the professional component of the program is determined by the following criteria:

General Education/Prerequisite course completion:

    • Applicants MUST have all Science and Math requirements met prior to the July start date.
    • Completion of General Education/Prerequisite courses is strongly encouraged to allow students to focus on MIT courses.
    • Students may complete general education courses while enrolled in the MIT program. 
    • Students MUST have all general education courses and core program courses completed to be eligible for graduation.
      • The number of credit hours completed at university/college at grade "C" or higher
      • The number of credit hours completed at Indiana University Kokomo at "C" or higher

GPA Consideration:

    • Overall grade point average (GPA)—all grades received from an approved, accredited college will be used and converted to a scale based on an "A" equal to 4.0. 
    • A minimum of 2.7 is necessary for consideration
    • Have maintained a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale for all clinically related courses
    • A completed MIT application form with three (3) reference letters.
    • Documentation of advanced certification in an advanced modality
    • Documented certification in radiography (ARRT etc.) including content section scores
    • Reapplication by students previously denied admission
    • Students who have been convicted of a misdemeanor (not a moving traffic violation) or felony may be unable to obtain appropriate credentials to practice in some disciplines.  Contact the ARRT or ARDMS for further information.
    • A student whose name appears on the State of Indiana's Sex Offenders Registry will not be allowed to pursue admission to any program in the Radiologic Technology Professions Programs.

In the event of a tie, the candidate with the greatest number of courses taken at Indiana University Kokomo, at a grade of "C" or above, will be given preference.

Upon Acceptance into the MIT Program:

Program information will be sent to students via the U.S. Postal Service and e-mail by IU Kokomo’s spring break.  Acceptance is dependent upon the number of clinical sites willing to host students.

It is the responsibility of the student to follow-up on his/her application and on the selection progress.  Please notify the program office of changes in your address, phone number, e-mail address, or questions to the Allied Health offices (Hunt Hall 106) at (765) 455-9490 or Lauren Stewart (

Students will be provided with a checklist of items needed prior to beginning the MIT program.  

Criminal History Disclosure –

    • Health care institutions may require a criminal history background check on all employees and persons who provide direct patient care.
    • Upon acceptance into the MIT program, you will be required to send the program a criminal history disclosure report (see Instructions).  Please include all criminal offenses (i.e. felonies and misdemeanors as well as non-criminal offenses.)
    • Applicants are not required to disclose such information on the application form.  Instead, please provide a typed statement of explanation, giving full details, including the facts and the disposition of the case(s).  This information should be submitted separately. 
    • If such a previous criminal history exists, the school's program director will confidentially discuss the information presented with the Division Chair.  This action is intended to ensure that the applicant's previous criminal history will not cause the applicant difficulty in obtaining a licensure or certification in their intended core choice. 
    • The applicant may be required to contact certifying and licensure organizations for a letter of clarification before entry into the core courses of the Medical Imaging Technology degree program. 
    • The Radiologic Science programs reserve the right to require the applicant to submit a full criminal history report as part of the selection process.
    • Applicants are responsible for maintaining a receipt certifying that the Division of Allied Health Sciences has received the letter.  The cost of this screening is the responsibility of the applicant.
