Program Planning

Advisors are available to assist students in planning for their program and for meeting degree requirements. It is the student’s responsibility to acquaint themselves with all the regulations and policies and to remain properly informed throughout their studies.

All provisions of this publication are in effect as soon as a student begins the Radiography Program. Preradiography and clinical/professional students, however, are subject to policy and curriculum changes as they occur. Curriculum changes during progress toward the degree may result in the revision of degree requirements.


Preradiography Program

Students may apply for admission to the Preradiography Program after qualifying for regular admission to Indiana University. Upon acceptance to the program, students enrolled in general-education courses required for the Associate of Science degree are classified as preradiography and advised through the Student Services Office within the Vera Z. Dwyer College of Health Sciences. Students should go to One.iu.edu | Student Appointment Scheduler (SAS) to schedule an appointment with an advisor.


One Repeat Policy

The IU South Bend Radiography and Medical Imaging Technology Programs mandate that all pre- and clinical/professional students achieve a minimum grade of C (P/Pass or S/Satisfactory) in any course a student may be required to take based upon their admittance status to the IU South Bend campus, placement exam scores, prerequisites, and general education course work. Students receiving a deficit grade (C- or below or U/UN/Unsatisfactory) in their first attempt of a required course must earn a minimum grade of C (P/Pass or S/Satisfactory) for their second completed attempt. Students who do not successfully complete a minimum grade of C (P/Pass or S/Satisfactory) in their second attempt for the course are ineligible to continue in the IU South Bend Radiography/Medical Imaging Technology Programs. This is applied at the time of program application and must be maintained (transfer grades must meet the minimum IU standard of C).

Students may repeat only three courses, or a maximum of 11 credit hours, of the required general-education courses in an effort to achieve a C or higher in each course (two science or three general-education electives). The Radiography Program follows the IU South Bend grade replacement policy.


Minimum Qualifications

Students may apply to the program if the required courses are near completion. Applications are provided starting February 1 and are due by April 1 of that year.


Completion of 20 Credit Hours

Students are required to complete a minimum of 12 credit hours of general-education coursework with a minimum grade of C by the end of the spring semester of the year of anticipated entry into the Clinical/Professional Program. All remaining courses must be completed by the end of the first summer session in the year of the application.


Minimum Grade Requirements

Students must have earned a minimum grade of C for the completed general-education core courses required for the degree without more than one repeat in any course mandated by placement exam scores, admission status, prerequisites, and required general education core coursework.

The Admission Grade Point Average (AGPA) includes grades earned in courses with the best grade counted if a course is repeated (excluding X grades according to Indiana University policy) that are required to meet general-education standards. Grades/credit hours from introductory, non-GPA bearing, or prerequisite courses are not included in this calculation.

Courses transferred from other institutions are used in calculating this average. Transfer grades must, however, meet Indiana University's minimum grade standard of C or higher. This requirement is applied at the time of program application and must be maintained.


Minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average

To be considered for admittance into the clinical program, students must have a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale for all work completed. Courses for which the grades of I, S, P, R, W, or X are assigned are not used to calculate the CGPA since there are no points assigned to these grades. This requirement is applied at the time of program application and must be maintained. (Transfer grades must meet the minimum IU standard of C).


Transfer Students
Transfer Credit Policy

Due to the competitive nature of application to our clinical program, a student must weigh the benefits of using transfer credit courses versus retaking the required general education course work within the IU system. Please contact admissions (574) 520-4839 about the transfer process.

For students seeking to use transfer credits from within the IU System and/or outside institutions to meet the required general education course work for the Associate of Science degree in Radiography (ASR), the following policy applies:

  • Minimum 2.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) | Students must have a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale for all work completed to be considered for admittance into the pre-radiography program. (Per IU academic policy, only grades earned at an IU system campus can be used to calculate the IU GPA for admittance consideration).
    If a student is seeking to use transfer credits from an outside institution(s) to meet the general education course requirements for the ASR degree and that institution’s CGPA does not meet the minimum 2.0 criterion, the student will be deemed a “probationary provisional student,” and the following requirement will be applied at the time of their program application and must be maintained. (Transfer grades must meet the minimum IU standard of C).
  • Provisional Student | To be considered a fully qualified pre-radiography admit, the student must demonstrate their ability to achieve academic success by completing a minimum 9 credit hours of required general education course work at IU South Bend with a minimum CGPA of 2.0 or higher. To meet the IU South Bend Vera Z. Dwyer College of Health Sciences and IU academic educational standards, all grades must be a minimum of C. This is applied at the time of program application and must be maintained.
  • Intercampus Transfer | Students wishing to transfer between campuses should check for the process on the campus to which they are transferring. To transfer to the IU South Bend campus, the student must submit an intercampus transfer request through the registrar’s office. Intercampus transfer requests are evaluated individually by the program director on the basis of the student’s academic record in general-education coursework.
  • Transfer from Non-Indiana University Radiography Program | Students in good academic standing at another university who wish to transfer should contact Admissions office. Preradiography courses completed at another university must be evaluated by the Admissions office for transfer equivalents and student placement.
