  • Minimum cumulative college GPA of 2.0 or higher.

  • RT 200L - (Radiologic Technology As A Career) with a grade of "C" or better. If you live outside of a 50-mile radius to Foothill College, and cannot complete this course at Foothill, you must email Rachelle Campbell (CampbellRachelle@fhda.edu) to request the Petition for Bio/Health Pre-Application Assessment form, which is a petition for equivalency to use another course or required clinical hours. This applies ONLY to students living outside the 50-mile radius.   Please provide ample time to be able to complete the alternative method to meet the RT200L requirement prior to the petition due date.Petitions, with all required attachments, for the 2024 application are due by December 1, 2023 by noon.   The Petition deadlinefor the 2023 application has passed.
    Winter RT200L class begins on Wednesday 1/11/23 at 1pm in Room 8403.  Students on the waitlist are encouraged to attend the first class to try and add.  Students will be added if there is room available.  Due to required clinical rotations during the course, COVID vaccination will be required.  This course ends on 3/8/23, after the March 1, 2023 application deadline has passed, so those students taking the course will not be eligible to apply to the program until the 2024 application opens Oct. 1, 2023.
