Thanks for your interest in the Radiological Sciences program at Penn State Schuylkill. The application cycle for fall 2023 admission begins Monday, August 1, 2022, and the process for applying to our program is outlined below. Students must have a completed application on file by January 31 for priority consideration. Students who apply after January 31 may not receive an admission decision by the end of February. In addition, Penn State Schuylkill will maintain a waitlist of qualified applicants and offer rolling admission until the start of the fall semester based on capacity.

Offer of admission
Admission to the Radiological Science program will follow a holistic review process. High school and transfer students must meet Penn State's general requirements for associate degrees. Applicants will be evaluated based on academic performance, curriculum and context of schedule, standardized test scores, and extracurricular activities. Admission criteria varies by year and is determined by the applicant pool.
Admission decisions will be released at the end of February. New students who receive an offer of admission to the program will have until May 1 to accept their offer of admission. Current students who receive admission to the program will have a limited amount of time to accept their offer of admission. After that time, we may expire offers. The program has a limited number of spaces based on clinical site capacity.
Pre-health (UCPAH_PMAJ) will be an option for those not admitted directly into the major and who still would like to come to Penn State Schuylkill.
