In order to apply for this program, you must have:
- An official high school or GED and college/program transcripts (if applicable) on file in the LCCC Records office
- A program application on file (This must be on file by January 5 to be considered for program admission the following year)
- A minimum GPA of 3.0 for college-level courses including transfer/transient work (excludes developmental education and more than two physical education courses)
- Satisfactory completion with a grade of C or better of the pre-admission courses on the diagnostic medical sonography curriculum guide which includes the following college or post-secondary education coursework: PHYC 115, Physics for the Allied Health Sciences (or equivalent); BIOG 121, Anatomy and Physiology I (or equivalent); MTHM 168, Statistics (or equivalent); ENGL 161, College Composition I (or equivalent); ALHN 113, Introduction to Patient Care; ALHN 112, Introduction to Medical Terminology; and ALHN 107, Career Explorations in Diagnostic Medical Sonography
- Completion of HESI A2 test with a minimum composite score of 75 (vocabulary and general knowledge, reading comprehension, grammar, basic math, biology, anatomy and physiology, physics, critical thinking and the learning style inventory; can be taken after completion of BIOG 121, MTHM 168 and PHYC 115; may remediate and wait one month to repeat and must be completed within six months of initial test date; scores will be valid for a three year period, so a three-year wait is required prior to the third attempt; a composite score below 75 on the retest will disqualify the program application)
If you are interested in applying to this program, you must:
- Complete the LCCC Application for Admission.
- Complete the placement assessment.
- Complete all Allied Health and Nursing Program Pre-Admission Requirements as specified on the program check list. (The checklist provides you with information regarding the application requirements and admissions procedures for a particular Health and Wellness program. It can be obtained from an academic advisor.)
- Meet with an advisor to verify that all requirements have been fulfilled. Upon verification of requirements, you may then file a Program Application.
If you are transferring from another college or university, the Records office should receive all transcripts at least 12 weeks before you complete a program application. This ensures that the processing of non-LCCC transcripts is completed well in advance of specific Allied Health and Nursing program application deadlines.
