The GPAs listed above are averages for those students selected in the initial selection of Radiography candidates. All qualified applicants are ranked via a 100 point ranking system based on their prerequisite GPA (80%), their overall cumulative GPA (15%) and their county residency (5%). Residency is determined based on the mailing address listed on the driver’s license submitted with the application only. Students not selected maintain their score and ranking. If a seat becomes available, applicants are contacted in the order that they are ranked. The GPAs listed are averages and are not associated with an individual applicant. Some applicants selected may have GPAs above or below the average in one or both categories listed.
