SPECIAL NOTICE

Special notice to applicants for the OSU-OKC Radiologic Technology and Cardiovascular Sonography programs: In response to the virus pandemic, program administrators have waived all TEAS testing requirements for incoming cohorts for the fall 2020 program and extended the application deadline for both programs to 5 p.m. July 1. In addition:

  • Administrators will determine points using the same points system (minus the TEAS points)
  • Administrators will not count anyone's TEAS score into the points calculations (to keep it fair)
  • Any TEAS scores that are submitted with applications will be used in the case of a tie-breaking situation (higher TEAS scores will be the determining factor)
  • All applications should be emailed to Vicki Prince at vicki.prince@okstate.edu. Applicants will then receive "application received" response
  • Students whose TEAS test was canceled after they signed up and paid a fee should contact the Testing Center and/or Business Services Office
  • Students chosen for interviews will be sent a Zoom interview invite. These interviews will be scheduled in the month of July
  • This process is subject to change, pending the ongoing COVID-19 crisis

 

About the Cardiovascular Sonography Program

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography Department offers a program of study leading to an Associate in Applied Science degree in Cardiovascular Sonography. Graduates are eligible for national board exams by the ARDMS and CCI (please see the “Useful Links webpage for more information). The Cardiovascular Sonography program of study is a 65-credit hour program, which includes classroom and laboratory instruction on campus as well as supervised clinical experience at affiliated health agencies. Admission to the Cardiovascular Sonography program is based on a points system. One class is admitted to the program every academic year. A cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 on completed college coursework is necessary in order to be considered for the program. The following factors are considered in selecting students:

  • Grades from required prerequisite coursework
  • Cumulative grade point average (GPA) of all previous collegiate academic work
  • Pre-Admission TEAS test score
  • Required prerequisite courses completed (see Important Points)
  • Pre-clinical vaccination/shot records (Due upon admission to the program.)

It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all required application materials are delivered to the Cardiovascular Sonography office by the published deadline dates. Contact the Department for application information, (405) 945-8698. It is possible to complete the Cardiovascular Sonography program within five semesters. It is advised to enroll in all general education and related courses before seeking admission to the program. After admission to the program the courses must be taken sequentially as listed. All students considering application to the Cardiovascular Sonography program are strongly urged to seek advisement from the Cardiovascular Technology department as we keep applicant pool information so potential applicants can be informed of any curriculum and/or programmatic changes.

Computer Literacy Requirement

Students enrolled in the program will be expected to use the computer for generating reports, testing, computer-assisted instruction and electronic searches. The cardiovascular technology curriculum at OSU-Oklahoma City is computer intensive. Graduation from the program allows the student to meet the computer literacy requirement. An introductory computer course is recommended for students lacking computer experience and/or skills.
