Application deadline nears for URG Allied Health programs

Staff Report

RIO GRANDE, Ohio – The University of Rio Grande School of Health and Behavioral Science’s deadline to apply for an allied health program is just around the corner.

The last day to apply for Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Radiologic Technology and Respiratory Therapy programs is April 1. To apply, students are to submit their applications and supporting documentations such as high school and college transcripts and ACT scores to the School of Health and Behavioral Science by the 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, one-year certificate programs in Medical Transcription and Medical Coding and Billing. The one-year Pharmacy Technician certificate program has an application deadline of Aug. 1.

All programs with an application process have a prerequisite of a high school or college biology, algebra and chemistry course. The RAD program includes an additional prerequisite of a high school or college level physics course. All prerequisites require a grade of “C” or higher. The RCP, RAD and DMS programs require students to qualify and participate in an interview process before final selections can be made because the school bases the number of students accepted into each program on available clinical sites.

The School of Health and Behavioral Science encourages students to apply for any of the programs they are interested in pursuing, however a separate application is needed for each program.

Copies of the DMS, RAD, RCP, or Pharm Tech program application forms are available on the university website’s Degrees and Programs page,, by clicking the link to the degree’s Web page.
