Frequently Asked Questions about KU's certificate program in Nuclear Medicine Technology

I have taken a combined human anatomy and physiology course. Will this meet the course requirements to enter this program?
Students are required to take two full courses and two labs total in human anatomy and physiology. The basic requirement is for a human anatomy course with lab and a separate human physiology course with lab.

If a combined human anatomy and physiology course was taken, it must have the lab component. In addition, the student must have completed a second course (human anatomy and physiology II), also with lab.

Is a distance-learning option available?
No. All courses are conducted at the KU Medical Center and require attendance on campus. This is not an online program.

Do you accept transfer students?
No. The program does not accept advanced-placement, part-time or transfer students.

What on-campus housing options are available for students?
There is no student housing on the KU Medical Center campus. Most students live in apartments in surrounding neighborhoods and are responsible for arranging their own housing. Housing is available for students on the Lawrence campus: see Student Housing for information.

Is the background check required when applying to the program?
No,
not during the application process, but students are required to follow the background check procedure once accepted into the program and to complete it before entering the program.

I already have a degree, but it's not from a U.S. college or university. What steps do I need to take?
All non-U.S. transcripts must be evaluated before they will be accepted. Please see our information for international students page for more details about this procedure.

I need driving directions.
