Thanks for your interest in the Radiological Sciences Program at Penn State Schuylkill. The process for applying to our program is outlined below. Students must have a completed application on file by November 30 for priority consideration. Students who apply after November 30 may not receive an admission decision by the end of January. We will not follow the early action deadline for this program. If a student selects early action on the application, decisions will not start until the end of January.

Offer of admission
Admission to the Radiologic 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 will be determined by the applicant pool.
Admission decisions will be released at the end of January. Students who receive an offer of admission to the program will have until May 1 to accept their offer of admission. After that date, 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.
