Selective Admission: Diagnostic Medical Sonography
The process for applying is a Complete Application Packet format. Students must submit all documents below in one envelope to be considered for the program.
Deadline to Apply for Fall: March 1
Step 1. Create a Selective Admissions System account (new window). Once you have an active account you can print a program checklist to begin the process. You must submit the checklist with your packet. You can apply for a total of two selective admission programs.
Step 2. Students who are not currently enrolled in classes at BCTC must fill out an application for admission (new window). Students who are currently enrolled in classes at BCTC will not need to reapply.
Step 3. Each applicant must schedule a mandatory preadmission interview with the Program Coordinator. Interviews will be conducted at the beginning of the Spring semester. An interview attendance form will need to be submitted in your packet.
- Students may also attend a highly encouraged, but optional, preadmission conference for the program. Please refer to the preadmission conference website for further information.
Step 4. Gather the following additional documents for your packet (these are listed on the checklist):
- Submit official scores of the USA (Ultrasound Student Assessment) exam.
- Official transcripts of all post-secondary education attempted. Transcripts must be submitted from EACH college or university previously attended and must show every period of enrollment. If transcripts have already been submitted for general admission to KCTCS then you do not need to include second copies of these transcripts in your packet. Transcripts from the Kentucky Community and Technical College System do not need to be submitted.
Step 5. Turn in your completed packet to the Office of Admissions, Newtown Campus - The Den, by the deadline. Please allow 10 business days to process your application to the diagnostic medical sonography program. You will receive an automated e-mail informing you when your packet has been processed. To check on the status of your application you will need to login to your Selective Admissions System account (new window).
