Radiologic technologists are key members of the healthcare team who create images used to diagnose patient injury
or illness. They use sophisticated equipment to produce radiographic images or x-rays of the human body. Students
successfully completing radiologic technology education will be able to pursue careers in many different settings,
including hospitals, medical offices, and clinics across the nation.
The CBC Radiologic Technology program is a selective admission and competitive entrance program. You must apply
to the College and also to the program. Applicants are screened according to timely coursework completion and
grades. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age at the start of the program.
Applicants are encouraged to attend at least one information session. At this session an advisor will describe the

The Columbia Basin
College Radiologic Technology program utilizes several elements for initial review of applicants
seeking entrance into the Radiologic Technology program. Those elements include (A) cumulative grade point average
among selected prerequisite courses and (B) TEAS assessment score. A bonus point (C) is given for successful
completion of a CBC Health Science program. Each of these elements is outlined further below. Scores on each
element will be combined to form the applicant’s initial Admission Index Score based on a total of 20 possible points
(plus one possible bonus point).
Each prerequisi
te course must be passed with a minimum of a 2.0 for students to be considered for the Radiologic
Technology program. Winter quarter will be the cut off for classes for this application period, spring quarter classes
will not count towards the 2020 application. All transcripts must be sent to CBC Student Records by April 15, 2020.

When the student submits an application to the program, the initial Admissions Index Score will be computed and
recorded for class cohort comparison. Students with the highest final Admissions Index Scores (based on the total
number of new applicants allowed in a given year) will be accepted into the program.
A. Cumulative Grade Point
The cumulative grade point of the following courses will be calculated for the Admissions Index Score.
1. BIOL& 241/241L (Anatomy & Physiology I)
2. BIO
L& 242/242L (Anatomy & Physiology II)
3. MATH& 146 (Statistics)
4. ENGL& 101 (English Composition)
The cumulative GPA (from a total possible cumulative score of 4.0) will be multiplied by a factor of 2.5 for 10 total
possible points.
Letter grades (including those received from transferring colleges or universities) will be assigned the following
decimal scores according to our campus policy:
A = 4.0, A- = 3.7, B+ = 3.3, B = 3.0, B- = 2.7, C+ = 2.3, C = 2.0, C- = 1.7, D+ =1.3, D= 1.0, D- = 0.7
B. TEAS Assessment Score
The total TEAS score (from a total possible score of 100) will be divided by a factor of 10 for 10 total possible points.

The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) score will be utilized to assess math, English, and science
comprehension at the time of application. The assessment will be provided through the Columbia Basin College
Assessment Center based on student demand and independent scheduling. Results will be forwarded to the
Student Records office for placement of score results within respective student files. This test may be taken twice
per year of Radiologic Technology application. The highest score per application period will be used for
computation of the Radiologic Technology Admissions Index Score. The test will be provided at specific times
throughout the academic year. Please contact the Assessment Center for test availability dates.
