Admission Requirements & Procedures

From Radiological Sciences

[edit] Admission Requirements

Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences admission requirements are: a bachelor's degree, undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0, GRE score of at least 1000, TOEFL score of at least 550. In addition to the graduate school requirements are program requirements of a bachelor's degree in a natural science or engineering. A degree in some other field must have provided sufficient science and mathematics courses to give the applicant the equivalent of a degree in natural science or engineering.

[edit] Applicants must have undergraduate credit for the following courses:

Although students may be admitted with deficiencies, which can be eliminated by successfully completing approved courses at other institutions, all deficiencies must be removed before admission to candidacy for a degree.

(Note: for students applying to the Human Imaging Curriculum of the Radiation Biology Track, MCAT or USMLE scores may be accepted in lieu of GRE)

[edit] Additional Prerequisites for Medical Physics Applicants:

As a CAMPEP-accredited graduate program, admission into the UTHSCSA Medical Physics education programs requires that students accepted have a strong foundation in basic Physics. This should be documented by either an undergraduate degree in physics or a degree in a related engineering or physical science with coursework that is equivalent to a minor in Physics (includes at least three upper level undergraduate physics courses). In addition, students are expected to have basic college-level Chemistry and Biology training (one year or two semesters each) and one semester of computer science.

Admission Procedure

Applications for admission into the Graduate Program in Radiological Sciences, are screened by the COGS' Application Review Committee, throughout the year. Faculty Advisors and funding (where required) are sought for each applicant deemed to be academically adequate. Acceptance of applicants starts in January and are approved by the on a COGS monthly basis through May.

To be considered for the fall semester, the deadline for applications is February 1st. All application materials must be received by February 1st. Since spaces are taken quickly, applicants are encouraged to have all their materials in by December of the year previous to potential enrollment.

To be considered for the spring semester, the deadline for applications is September 1st. All application materials must be received by October 1st. Admission of students to the Spring term is only granted under exceptional circumstances.

The Application Review Committee will present the candidates for acceptance and rejection to the COGS. By majority vote, an applicant is recommended for either admission or rejection by the COGS. The recommendation is made to the Dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. The applicants are informed, in writing, by the Dean of the action taken on their application and of any contingencies imposed upon acceptance.

Incomplete applications will be held until the beginning of the semester for which a student applies. Afterward, an Admission Recommendation form will be sent to the Associate Dean indicating rejection due to incomplete application materials and noting the specific items that are missing.
