Radiography courses are planned as a progression of increasing complexity; they build upon one another and are taken in sequence. A minimum grade of “B-” is required in each radiography course. If a student has failed to attain a grade of “B-” or better in more than one clinical radiography course within the total program of studies, that student will be dismissed from the program. If a student has failed to attain a grade of “B-” or better in the same radiography course twice, that student will be dismissed from the program. Pass/Fail is not an option. Students must successfully complete both the theory and clinical components of each radiography course in order to progress to the next sequential course. Attendance is required for class and clinical experiences.
Any student receiving a clinical failure in a radiography course will receive an “F” for the course and be terminated from the radiography program.
A minimum grade of “C+” is required in English Composition and College Algebra, Chemistry, and Biology. A minimum grade of a “B-” is required in BIO211, BIO212 and PHY101. General education courses may only be repeated once.
Clinical experiences are provided at St. Vincent’s Medical Center, Stamford Hospital, Bridgeport and Stamford communities and other healthcare facilities within the community. In order to attend clinical experiences, students must pass a physical assessment including drug screen and have a PPD administered and read annually.
