Cardiovascular Sonography Admission Profile

Use the following guidelines to calculate your admission point total:

Prerequisite Course Grades

A = 4 points (per credit hour)
B = 3 points (per credit hour)
C = 2 points (per credit hour)
D-F = 0 points (per credit hour)

All General Education and Support/Related Courses on the degree sheet with a grade of "C" or higher will be included in the points tabulation.

  • To earn the most application points possible, it is required that all Gen Ed and support related courses be completed prior to submitting a Program Application. 
  • Any course work completed with AP credit, CLEP, or Pass will be awarded 2 points per credit hour for the course.
  • Any pending summer course work will not be included in the points calculation for the programmatic application packet. It is required to apply only after all coursework has been completed.
  • Prerequisite and General Support related courses that differ from the courses listed on the programmatic degree sheet must be approved as an equivalent prior to submitting a program application packet. Please contact the Academic Advisor, James Anderson, at for more information (See the link to the programmatic degree sheet at the bottom of this page).

  • When applying to the program, a Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) ATI is required. A new TEAS ATI test is required for each year an applicant applies to the program.

An Applicant is allowed two attempts at the TEAS ATI in a rolling 12-month period, but no less than 90 days after the first attempt.
  • There is no cut-score for the TEAS ATI exam. However, a TEAS ATI Score of 70 or above is required to earn a competitive number of points. 
  • Links to information about the TEAS ATI can be found here:

  • A Cumulative Grade Point Average of 2.5 or above is required to qualify to apply to the program. 
  • A Cumulative GPA of below 2.5 will not be accepted. 
  • Points are only assigned to Cumulative GPAs of 2.5 or above. Please see point scale listed above.

  • Program Prerequisite, Gen Ed, and Support Related course work taken at any Oklahoma State University Campus location will be included in bonus point qualifications.
  • Completed Application Packets will only be accepted between March 1st and May 31st of each year. Early or Late Applications submitted outside of this time frame will not be processed. 
  • It is strongly suggested not to wait until the application due date to submit the application packet, to ensure an appropriate amount of time for application packet and transcript processing. When applicants are transferring courses from other institutions, it is strongly suggested to apply to Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City approximately 4-6 weeks prior to submitting a program application packet. Please note that official transcripts from ALL attended institutions are required to be submitted to Admissions. 
  • Applicants are responsible to ensure their application packet is complete. The Diagnostic Medical Imaging Department will not process incomplete application packets or notify applicants of missing items. Applicants must ensure each item on the application checklist is fulfilled and included in the submitted packet. 

The final step in the program admission process will be a short panel interview of the top scoring applicants. The panel will consist of various representatives of the organization who will evaluate the candidate using an evaluation rubric. Each panel interviewer will fill out an evaluation sheet and rate the candidate on key requirements for the program. After all interviews are conducted, panelists rank the candidates, and once a consensus is reached, the final applicants are chosen. The remaining applicants will be considered alternates. When a student is placed on the alternate list, there is no “ranking”..
