Students admitted to this program start their studies as a Pre-Radiological Science major, taking courses that meet our graduation requirements. At the end of the first year of study, a student needs to have at least a 3.0 GPA to progress to the second year and maintain that GPA throughout the second year.

During the spring term of the sophomore year, students apply to BRMC for admission into the School of Radiography. The deadline for applications is Feb. 1. To be admitted, a student must be in good academic standing. There are limited numbers of openings at BRMC – typically around 16 each year -- so preference is given to students who have performed well academically. Generally, that means having at least a 3.0 GPA and meeting all course requirements.

If you are already a certified RT, 50 credits from your accredited radiographic program will be applied toward the 120 credits you’ll need to graduate from Pitt-Bradford with your bachelor’s degree.

The first time I came to visit campus, I felt welcome here, and it just felt right. I knew that day that Pitt-Bradford was where I wanted to spend the next four years of my life. Amanda Hollabaugh ’19, radiographer at Titusville (PA) Area Hospital
