Part 1: Apply to AHU
To become a student here at AHU, you must first apply for General Studies admission. We offer processes tailored for every kind of student, whether you're straight out of high school or have some previous college experience.
Our students enjoy top-notch facilities, program curriculums, and complete access to our faculty. To ensure students the education they trust us to provide, we place an annual admissions cap on our Nuclear Medicine Technology program, so that our incoming students won't have their resources at AHU stretched thin. Students who meet our admission requirements qualify for consideration to enter the Nuclear Medicine Technology program, but the competitive nature of the program's admission process means meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Students may be given preferential consideration for admission to the program, however, when they have successfully completed 12 college-level hours at AdventHealth University. We do require that accepted applicants place a nonrefundable $200 deposit to reserve your program slot. Your acceptance letter will outline a deposit amount and deadline indicating when we must receive the deposit. Once enrolled in the program, these funds will be applied to your account. Those who paid the deposit but decline to enroll in the program will forfeit the deposit; If that student is admitted to the same program at a later date, AHU will require another full deposit. If an applicant is admitted to a program with prerequisites in progress and becomes ineligible for admission due to grades, however, a full refund will be provided. A professional program deposit is not transferable to another department. Distance Education students are not required to pay a program deposit.
Please submit the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program Application once admitted to the University, accessible through my.ahu.edu.
We require a minimum cumulative, unweighed high school GPA of 2.70 or 12 college credits from a regionally accredited college with a 2.70 minimum GPA—a cumulative record of all college-level work.
Please complete our prerequisite courses by the program start date. Applicants possessing a minimum of 12 college-level credits at AdventHealth University are most competitive, as are applicants having completed the noted courses. Please recognize that all six prerequisite courses must be completed before the program begins.

For students entering Summer 2019 or later
A minimum ACT composite score of 19 with an individual score of 19 in math, or a combined SAT score of 910 (rSAT: 990) with an individual 510 in math. Applicants with 24 or more credits from a regionally accredited college are exempt from taking the ACT or SAT.
Please submit two AHU Recommendation Forms. If an applicant to an undergraduate program has completed at least one trimester at AdventHealth University before being admitted to a program, one of the two recommendations must come from any AHU faculty member, adjunct professor, tutoring coordinator, chaplain, or academic advisor.
Each applicant must submit an entry essay during the admission process. The essay should describe the applicant's particular intend for entering the Nuclear Medicine Technology program, as well as the applicant's desire to pursue this course of study at AHU, a faith-based institution, and his or her future goals. We would also like to learn the applicant's characteristics and abilities that qualify him or her for this profession. The applicant should also express his or her perception of how nuclear medicine technologists contribute to healthcare and how an educational experience at AHU will enable the applicant to make future contributions. Essays are reviewed for clarity, correct spelling and grammar, and content.
Competitive applicants will be invited to attend an interview. Meeting minimum admissions requirements does not guarantee an invitation for an interview. Every applicant who wishes to be accepted to the program must complete the interview process.
