    1. Completed graduate application for admission
    2. $30 nonrefundable application fee (unless you have previously applied to Grand Valley)

Note: For a student to obtain a student F-1 visa for studies in the USA, the program must be offered primarily in-seat at the designated school.  Although our medical dosimetry program does require students to meet in person at times, the fact that it is primarily done online impacts access to a student visa.  Student’s seeking an F-1 visa to the USA will not be eligible for this program.  It is important to note that this does not apply to students living abroad who have USA citizenship or USA green card status.

Non-Radiation Therapy Background Applicants- Conditional Admissions Consideration

Students must complete or submit a plan for completion of all prerequisite and undergraduate degree requirements by the application deadline. Applicants submitting a plan for completion of prerequisites who are selected will receive conditional letters of admission, which convert to full admission upon successful completion of the entire plan for completion prior to the start of the program. A plan for completion is submitted as an additional page to the application. There is not a form for this document.

Only a few exceptional applicants are admitted with conditional letters of admission.
