Applications for admission into the nuclear medical technology major can be picked up in WSB 145 (Wick Science Building, Room 145).

Admission to the major does not imply automatic acceptance into a clinical program. Job shadowing (12 hours) should be completed before applying for admission to the major. Students may apply to the nuclear medical technology program when their completed credits equal or exceed 24 semester credits, including BIOL 151 and CHEM 210 with a grade point average of 2.5 or higher. At least eight credits must have been earned in residence at St. Cloud State University. It is suggested that students apply for the major as early as possible to ensure a timely plan for completing the required courses and securing a seat in a clinical program.

Acceptance by the clinical affiliates is competitive. Applications are made in September, approximately one year prior to the starting date of the clinical program. Specific information regarding the application process, the recommended grade point average and the details of each affiliate's program is available through the nuclear medicine technology director's office. Students must complete all core and liberal education requirements before beginning the clinical phase.
