To be eligible for admission to the Radiologic Technology Program, applicants will be evaluated based on the following criteria and point system. Points are given based on grades earned in the courses listed below and the applicant's G.P.A. (grade point average) outlined below. Applicants with the most points will be offered admission to the program.

  • Graduation from an approved high school or acceptable equivalent preparation.
  • Completion of the following courses:
    1. College Algebra (MAT 137 or equivalent)
    2. Anatomy and Physiology I with Laboratory (BIO 211 or equivalent)
    3. Anatomy & Physiology II with Laboratory (BIO 212 or equivalent)
    4. English Composition (ENG 101 or equivalent)
    • A+ (9) B+ (6) C+ (3)
    • A (8) B (5) C (2)
    • A- (7) B- (4) C- (1)
  • TEAS V score. Applicants must have an adjusted individual total score of 53.3% or higher. Test scores will be valid for three years from the testing date (I.E. May 30, 2013 - May 30, 2016).
  • Radiologic Technology G.P.A. based only on the college courses that meet the Radiologic Technology admissions requirements and Radiologic Technology program curriculum requirements. This may differ from your college G.P.A. Your calculated Radiologic Technology G.P.A. will be added directly to your point total. For example, an applicant with a Radiologic Technology G.P.A. of 3.50 will have 3.50 points added to their scores. (please note: if an applicant is using a course from a Fresh Start semester to meet a Radiologic Technology admission or program curriculum requirement, that course will count in the calculation of the applicant's Radiologic Technology G.P.A.).
  • Applicants who have previously applied to the Radiologic Technology program (1 point).
  • Submit a letter requesting consideration for admission into the Radiologic Technology Program to the Admissions Office no later than June 1. The letter should include your banner ID, email address, and phone number. Please submit the letter to CA-Admissions@Capitalcc.edu or in person to the Enrollment Services Office in Room 207.

Applicants must submit to the Admissions Office all official transcripts (high school and college courses, if any; SAT, if scores are not recorded on other transcripts) by the June 1 application deadline.

Because enrollment is limited, not all qualified applicants will be accepted. Admissions decisions will be based on academic standing and the point system outlined above. Applicants will be notified of their status by email in July. Final acceptance is contingent upon documentation of a physical examination, and required immunizations. All health information documentation must be on file in the Health Careers Office by August 15 of the admitting year, or the applicant's place in the program may be relinquished.

Completed application must be submitted by June 1 each year. Files must be complete before applicants can be considered. Qualified applicants will be required to attend a mandatory information session in June or July.


The TEAS V is a multiple choice test that evaluates essential academic skills: math, science, reading, and English. It is recommended that applicants review biology, chemistry, and math content in preparation for taking the TEAS V. The test will take approximately 3˝ hours to complete. Applicants cannot reschedule their test date.

Testing fees are non-refundable.

Applicants must obtain an adjusted individual total score of 53.3% or higher on the TEAS V to be considered for admission. Applicants may retake the TEAS V as many times as desired. The applicant's highest TEAS V score will be used when determining eligibility.

The TEAS V is administered at Capital, Gateway, Naugatuck Valley, Northwestern CT, Norwalk and Three Rivers. If the TEAS V is taken at a site other than one of the Connecticut Community Colleges, applicants must have official results sent by ATI to Capital Community College by the application deadline of June 1. Effective July 1, 2014, all community college testing sites will be charging a proctor fee in addition to ATI's registration fee. More information on the proctor fee will be provided at the time of registration for the TEAS.

For testing schedules and registration information, go to www.atitesting.com/ctccteas. Applicants must have an account with ATI. Please use your Banner ID as your student/Employee ID." Applicants must log into their ATI account in order to see available testing dates within the community college system. A study manual for the TEAS V is available through www.atitesting.com. Online practice tests are also available through ATI. For additional information about the TEAS V, please visit www.atitesting.com.
