Nuclear Medicine Program Requirements

Program Eligibility & Affiliates

Eligible students may be accepted into our program in one of two ways:

  1. Transferring as a senior from one of our affiliated academic institutions

    Our affiliates accept the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program as the fourth year, completing a bachelor’s degree.

    Tuition and fees are based on 85% of the tuition from the affiliated academic institution. This fee covers all textbooks and supplies. The supplies include one set of hospital scrubs, radiation monitors and any other required daily supplies.

    Our current affiliates are:

    • St. Cloud State University – St. Cloud, Minnesota
    • University of Wisconsin – La Crosse
    • Luther College – Decorah, Iowa

    NOTE: Interns from affiliated colleges are preferred due to prior academic class work.

  2. Transferring after completion of a bachelor’s degree in a science or science-related major from an accredited college or university

    Tuition and fees for the year are $6,000. This fee covers all textbooks and supplies. The supplies include one set of hospital scrubs, radiation monitors and any other required daily supplies. Financial aid is not available for tuition during the internship if you are not from an affiliated college.
