RADIOLOGICAL SCIENCES What is Radiography? Radiography uses ionized radiation to produce x-rays or radiographs of the human body. Radiography is used for imaging skeletal structures and internal organs, occasionally using a contrast medium. The radiologic technologist or “radiographer” prepares and positions the patient for the exam, operates the radiographic equipment, and processes the digital images for review and consultation with physicians and other healthcare professionals.

RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES HESI A 2 ASSESSMENT TEST Reading Comprehension Grammar Vocabulary/General Knowledge Math The HESI A 2 is a timed, computerized test which usually takes 3-4 hours to complete. In order to apply to the program, applicants must score 70% or higher on each of the required sections of the test: The Personality Profile and Learning Styles sections of the HESI A 2 are also required but are not scored. Applicants should take the HESI A 2 after completing the Radiography prerequisite courses.
RADIOGRAPHY SCIENCES HESI A 2 scores are valid for two (2) years from testing date to the date of anticipated program entry. The HESI A 2 can be taken at any testing site. Applicants are responsible for securing their own testing appointment and should schedule their test several weeks prior to the application deadline. There is no limit on the number of testing attempts for the HESI A 2. However, ALL FOUR REQUIRED SECTIONS of the test must be taken in each testing attempt and the score sheet submitted with your application must indicate a minimum score of 70 on each section to be valid. (The Personality Profile and Learning Styles sections may be submitted from any previous testing attempt.) A HESI A 2 Study Guide is available at most bookstores. A HESI A 2 Prep course is also offered by the El Centro College Continuing Education Division. Contact them at 214-860-2147 for more information.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES How do I sign up for my HESI A 2 test? Registration and payment for the HESI A 2 varies among testing sites. IMPORTANT NOTE: Testing sites other than the Paramount and Northlake College may not offer all the sections of the HESI A 2 that are required by our programs. Before you register and pay for the test, be sure the HESI A 2 at other testing sites has all the sections you need for program application! Detailed instructions are found at the above link to assist you in checking the calendar for testing dates, logging on to the Evolve website to set up your testing account, registering for a testing date, and paying for the HESI A 2, all online.

The cost of the HESI A 2 at the Paramount Computer Lab is approximately $35.00.www.ElCentroCollege.edu/HealthOccAdmissions
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES What else will I need before I apply to the program? PHYSICAL EXAM All applicants must obtain a basic physical exam dated no more than one year before the program application deadline. The physical exam can be performed by their personal physician or at an immediate care clinic. The physical exam form is available for download and print at the blue “Resources for Potential Applicants” link on the following website: www.ElCentroCollege.edu/HealthOccAdmissions
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES What about immunizations? Applicants are required to present documentation of a current tuberculosis screening with their application materials. A chest x-ray exam is required if: The TB screen shows a positive result The applicant has had a history of positive TB screens The applicant has received the BCG inoculation The date of the tuberculosis screening (“PPD” skin test) must be less than one year before the anticipated program entry date.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES In addition, the following immunizations are also required: One dose of Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis (“Tdap”) within the last 10 years (NOTE: A T/d booster without Pertussis is NOT accepted.) Two doses of varicella (chickenpox) at least one month apart (NOTE: A statement of “disease history” of chickenpox is NOT accepted.) Three doses of Hepatitis B on this recommended schedule: 1 st Dose 2 nd Dose one month after the 1 st dose 3 rd Dose five months after the 2 nd dose Two doses of measles (rubeola) and one dose each of mumps and rubella (Two doses of the “MMR” measles/mumps/rubella combination received at least one month apart will also meet this requirement.) Detailed guidelines for immunization requirements and the Physical Exam form found on the blue “Resources for Potential Applicants” link at: www.ElCentroCollege.edu/HealthOccAdmissions.www.ElCentroCollege.edu/HealthOccAdmissions
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES If your doctor is administering these immunizations, the date of the injection and the doctor’s signature must be indicated on that specific line on the immunization section of the physical exam form. IMPORTANT NOTE: A statement of immune by history of disease, dates of illness such as measles, chickenpox, mumps, etc., or a general statement of “immune” is not acceptable documentation for the immunizations required for application to the program.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES You may have separate records for some of your immunizations on a printout from a clinic or a card with childhood immunizations. You may submit a photocopy of that documentation attached with your physical exam form. These documents do not necessarily need a signature. See examples below.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES What if I can’t find any of my immunization records? We can accept documentation of a blood tests known as a “titers” in lieu of these immunizations: measles, mumps, rubella, varicella (chickenpox) and Hepatitis B. Titer results are not accepted for Tdap. IMPORTANT! If a titer result does not indicate immunity, you must complete that specific immunization as required before submitting your application packet. Therefore, titers should be ordered at least six weeks prior to an application filing deadline. This would allow you to receive two injections at least one month apart for MMR’s, or varicella’s, or the first two Hepatitis B injections prior to the application deadline. Titer documentation must show positive immunity and/or numeric lab values.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES What CPR training do I need? CPR CERTIFICATION AT THE “HEALTHCARE PROVIDER” level (sometimes known as BLS-Healthcare Provider) is also required for our programs. This training includes a hands-on check off procedure for one-man and two-man CPR for adults, children, and infants in addition to choking and the AED (portable defibrillator). This training also includes a written test, either online or with the hands-on check off. CPR classes are available through the El Centro College Continuing Education Division. NOTE: Online CPR training is not accepted for health occupations programs. A photocopy of your current CPR card must be submitted with your application materials and must not expire before the first day of program classes.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES What do I submit as my application packet? Compile these materials for your envelope: The completed Radiography Application and signed Statement of Students’ Responsibility form HESI A 2 score sheet with Personality Profile and Learning Styles The completed physical exam form and immunization documentation Photocopy of your Healthcare Provider level CPR card Documentation of current health care experience (if applicable) A Checklist to help you gather your materials in found in the information packet.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES I have experience in healthcare. Is that considered? Applicants who have current experience in a health care area may be awarded additional points toward the ranking process. This may include but not limited to certified nurse aides, phlebotomists, nurses, patient care technicians, paramedics, or other licensed or certified health care professionals. To have that experience considered, the following documentation is needed: A photocopy of a certificate of completion or other documentation of training A letter on original official hospital/facility letterhead signed by your current supervisor indicating employment dates and specific details of your role and duties dealing with direct patient care at that facility. NOTE: Experience is not reviewed or confirmed prior to program application and the decision to award points for experience rests solely with the Radiography Program Coordinator.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES Remember …… All official transcripts from colleges other than El Centro College and Dallas County Community colleges must be on file at the Registrar’s Office before you submit your application materials!

RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES How are students notified of acceptance? All applicants to the Fall 2013 Radiography program receive a notification letter postmarked by July 1, 2013 informing them of their status. Students who receive an acceptance to the program must return a confirmation form to the Health Occupations Admissions Office by a specified date to confirm their space in the class. If late applications are considered, students who apply during the late application filing period, if selected, are notified via email on July 30 th. Applicants who are not offered acceptance to the program may re-apply for the next year. There is no waiting list for our health occupations programs.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES New Radiography Student Registration/Orientation Prior to the start date of the Radiography classes in August, newly accepted students to the program will meet for an orientation with the Program Coordinator at the Paramount Building. Health Occupations Admissions personnel will register the students for their Radiography courses during the orientation. Health Occupations Admissions personnel will also formally assign the students to their Radiography degree plans.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES What will a sample class schedule look like? Semester I - Fall Lecture/Lab MWR8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Semester II - Spring Lecture/LabMTW8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Semester III - Summer Hospital ClinicalMTWR8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Semester IV – Fall Lecture/LabTR8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Hospital ClinicalMWF8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Semester V – Spring Lecture/LabTR8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Hospital ClinicalMWF8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Semester VI – Summer Hospital ClinicalMTWR8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES At what hospitals would I do my clinical rotations? Clinical rotations will vary among selected Metroplex area clinical affiliates. Students are assigned to their specific clinical rotations and wear their official program scrub uniforms only during their clinical rotations. You can expect to be at three different clinical sites during the program. It is important to have reliable transportation to your clinical site as not all clinical sites are on the DART system.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES Criminal Background Checks / Drug Screen After acceptance to the program and before their first clinical rotation, students will undergo a criminal background check and drug screen as required by our hospital affiliates for all health occupations programs. Students will be responsible for this charge (approximately $86.00). All results of these screenings will become the property of the Health and Legal Studies Division and will not be released to the student or another third party. More information on the background check/drug screen requirement is available at the blue “Resources for Potential Students” link on our website at www.ElCentroCollege.edu/HealthOccAdmissions. www.ElCentroCollege.edu/HealthOccAdmissions
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES Criminal Background Checks / Drug Screen IMPORTANT NOTE Students with a previous felony or misdemeanor are not prohibited from applying to a health occupations program. However, the result of the background check and drug screen after acceptance may prevent the student from attending a clinical rotation at our hospital sites, resulting in the student being dismissed from the program. Therefore, potential applicants should contact the ARRT prior to applying to the program to determine their eligibility to take the ARRT registry exam. More information is found at the following link on the ARRT website: https://www.arrt.org/pdfs/Ethics/Ethics-Review-Pre-Application.pdf
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES A Few Frequently Asked Questions…. I have a full-time job. Can I work while I’m in the Radiography program? The Radiography prerequisite and support classes are offered day, evening, weekend and some online schedules; therefore, a potential applicant has the flexibility to work before they apply to the Radiography program. After acceptance and starting the Radiography courses themselves, many students do work. During the first two semesters of the program, a student may have radiography classes only 2-4 days per week if all their support courses are completed. During the second year of the program, classes and clinical rotations are five days per week; therefore, students may only be able to work part-time on the weekends. The Radiography program courses are usually scheduled during daytime hours, Monday-Friday. Students in the Radiography program are not paid while doing their clinical rotations.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES Frequently Asked Questions (cont.) I am going to apply for financial aid. May I use it for the Radiography program? Yes! To apply for financial aid, please see the guidelines on the El Centro website at: http://www.elcentrocollege.edu/paying-college.http://www.elcentrocollege.edu/paying-college Students should apply for financial aid well in advance of program application. See the Health & Legal Studies Division Office in Room P- 712 at the Paramount Building for available scholarship information.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES Frequently Asked Questions (cont.) Are there advancement opportunities after graduating from the El Centro College Radiography program? Yes! Bachelor Degrees in Radiologic Sciences are available at many universities. An articulation agreement between the Radiography program at El Centro College and Midwestern State University for the BSRS degree is available for graduates to pursue their bachelor degree via online courses. For more information see the Midwestern State University website at the following link: http://hs2.mwsu.edu/radsci/bsrs/index.asp?LL=732 There are also advanced training and credentials in various specialty areas for Registered Radiologic Technologists which require additional education. These specialty areas include computerized tomography (CT), mammography, nuclear medicine, radiation therapy, sonography, magnetic resonance imaging, and education.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES Frequently Asked Questions (cont.) I earned a “C” in my English course several years ago. I would like to repeat it to earn a higher grade. Which grade will be used for my grade point average and will repeating the course count against my application? You may certainly repeat a course; the last grade earned will be the grade of record. (“W’s” or withdrawals from the course do not count in grade point average calculation.) Please note, however, that if you earn a grade of “D” or “F” in your second attempt in the course, THAT will be the grade of record and we will not honor the “C” you earned in your first attempt. Repeating a course to earn a higher grade does not count against your application as long as you complete the course with a “C” or higher on your last attempt.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES Frequently Asked Questions (cont.) How do I calculate my grade point average (GPA)? A grade point average is calculated by dividing the number of total grade points earned in a group of courses by the total number of credit hours those courses are worth. For example, a letter grade earns so many grade points per credit hour for that course: A = 4 grade points X the number of credit hours for the course B = 3 grade points X the number of credit hours for the course C = 2 grade points X the number of credit hours for the course
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES Frequently Asked Questions (cont.) Add the grade points: 12 + 9 + 8 = 29 grade points Add the number of credit hours: 3 + 3 + 4 = 10 credit hours ENGL 1301 – AA = 4 grade points X 3 credit hours for the course = 12 grade points MATH 1314 – BB = 3 grade points X 3 credit hours for the course = 9 grade points SCIT 1407 – CC = 2 grade points X 4 credit hours for the course = 8 grade points Here’s a sample of courses, grades earned, and the grade points for each:
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES Frequently Asked Questions (cont.) Where do I park at El Centro and the Paramount Building? Although El Centro College does not have reserved parking for students, staff, or visitors, parking is available at meters and various lots adjacent to the Paramount Building. The average cost of parking per day is $4 - $6. We are conveniently located near the West End DART Rail Station and the West Bus Transfer Center. Students who are enrolled in at least six (6) credit hours in Fall or Spring semesters, or 3 credit hours in Summer are eligible for a FREE DART PASS for that semester! The pass is valid on DART trains and buses. See the guidelines on the El Centro College website at http://www.elcentrocollege.edu/students/free-dart- passes. http://www.elcentrocollege.edu/students/free-dart- passes DART schedules and route maps can be found at http://www.dart.org. http://www.dart.org
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES Frequently Asked Questions (cont.) I don’t have a Social Security Number. Can I still apply to the Radiography program? A Social Security Number (SSN) is not required to apply to the Radiography program. However, many of our hospitals and clinical affiliates require students to have an SSN in order to perform their clinical assignments at that facility. Therefore, clinical opportunities may be limited for students without an SSN. Although an SSN is not required to take the registry exam from ARRT, the application for licensure in the state of Texas through the Texas Department of State Health Services does requires an SSN. Therefore, students who are accepted to the Radiography program are strongly encouraged to contact the El Centro College International Center for information on obtaining an SSN well in advance of graduation from the program. IMPORTANT NOTE: Should a clinical opportunity not be available for a student who has no SSN, the student may not be eligible to continue in the Radiography program.
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES Frequently Asked Questions (cont.) Do I need healthcare insurance while I am in the Radiography program? Proof of coverage is not required to apply to the Radiography program. However, if you are currently covered by a personal health care insurance policy, we encourage you to include a photocopy of that documentation with your application materials. If you are accepted to the Radiography program and did not include your insurance documentation with your application materials, you must submit proof of personal health insurance coverage prior to registration for your clinical rotations in the summer semester between your first and second years of the program. Please note that personal healthcare insurance is not the same as the fee for student liability insurance coverage which is paid in conjunction with your tuition.
