Health Career curricula are governed by specific objectives, rules, and regulations formulated by the College, accreditation agencies, and participating clinical facilities. Students should familiarize themselves with these standards. Student performance is evaluated at the end of each trimester. In addition to the College’s Code of Student Conduct, this academic program requires students to adhere to St. Francis School of Radiography’s Code of Professional and Academic Conduct. Dismissal of a student may result at any time during the 24-month course due to poor academic standing, lack of attention to radiographic principles, or unprofessional conduct. Students must maintain a scholastic average of C (2.0 GPA) or better in the RDT program courses. All academic policies are detailed in the College’s and St. Francis School of Radiography’s student handbooks, which are available in the school offices. Conditional acceptance is awarded to applicants meeting admission criteria. The applicant must then successfully pass a criminal background check and a health screening through Resurrection Health Care. This also includes successful completion of a 10-panel drug screen and a technical standards compliance form.
