Rio Grande, Ohio – The University of Rio Grande School of Health and Behavioral Science’s deadlines to apply for allied health programs are just around the corner. The last day to apply for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS), Radiologic Technology (RAD), and Respiratory Therapy (RCP) programs is April 1, 2019. Students looking to apply should submit their applications and supporting documentations such as high school and college transcripts as well as ACT scores to the School of Health and Behavioral Science by this deadline. The two-year associate degree Medical Office Assistant program is an open-enrollment program and does not have an application process. The school also offers open enrollment for one-year certificate programs in Medical Coding and Billing and Medical Transcription.

All programs with an application process have a prerequisite of a high school or college biology, algebra and chemistry course passed with a “C” or higher. The RAD program includes an additional prerequisite of a high school or college-level physics course or high school physical science course passed with a “C” or higher. RAD and DMS applicants who have graduated from high school within the last five years are also required to have an ACT composite score of 20 or higher. The RCP, RAD and DMS programs require students to qualify and participate in an interview process before the school makes final selections because the number of students accepted into each program is based on available clinical sites.

Students are encouraged to apply for all programs where they have an interest, but will need to submit a separate application for each program. Copies of the DMS, RAD, or RCP application forms are available on Rio’s website at /admissions/apply/. Applications can be mailed to University of Rio Grande, Attn: Allied Health, 218 N. College Avenue, Rio Grande, OH 45674, or faxed to Co-Chair of the School of Health and Behavioral Sciences Vicki Crabtree at 740-245-7440.
