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.

When must prerequisites be completed to be eligible for this program?
Students may apply to the program while still in the process of taking prerequisite courses. The courses must be completed before starting class in nuclear medicine technology at KU Medical Center.

Is a distance-learning or online course 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.

Is financial aid available?
Yes. Please check the financial aid page of the program of interest for details specific to those students. In addition, please visit the school's scholarships page.

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. For more information, please see KU Student Housing.

Is the background check required when applying to the program?
No, not during the application process. Students are required to follow the background check procedure once accepted into the program and to complete it before enrolling in classes.

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 the information for international students page for more details about this procedure.
