- Selection Process: A minimum GPA of 3.2 is required in preprofessional course work. All preprofessional courses are prerequisites for senior courses, thus deficiencies would normally have to be made up. Deficiencies will be assessed and a plan of action will be identified by the Radiation Therapy program office. The selection process is competitive, and applicants will be ranked primarily on academic achievement in the prerequisite courses. Other factors considered in ranking include overall academic achievement (emphasizing recent academic performance), a demonstrated ability to perform well in a consecutive Fall/Winter session of full-time study (preferably 30 units). a personal interview, and a career reflection letter.
- Spoken Language Requirement: Besides demonstrating overall English language proficiency, students need a further level of spoken English proficiency regardless of citizenship status or country of origin.
- Career Reflection Letter: Applicants must submit a career reflection letter outlining evidence of personal reflection regarding their career choice, professional goals, personal skills and attributes, knowledge of the profession, related experience, and reasons for seeking admission to the Radiation Therapy program.
- Personal Interview: Interview selection is based on postsecondary academic records and a career reflection letter received by April 1. Selected applicants will be interviewed to determine if they have the personal qualities necessary for the profession. The interview evaluates an applicant's empathy, communication, teamwork, reflection, conflict resolution, responsibility, initiative, problem-solving, prioritization and organization. Short-listed applicants will be advised of the interview date.
- Criminal Record checks: Applicants should be aware that under the Alberta Protection of People in Care Act, they will be required to satisfy a criminal record check once they are accepted into the Radiation Therapy program.
- Final Selection: Final admission decisions are made by the Radiation Therapy Admissions Committee.
- Deposit: Upon notification of acceptance, applicants will be required to confirm their intention to register by submitting a nonrefundable deposit within a specified time. The deposit will be credited toward payment of tuition upon completion of registration
