Notes:
Earned grade of C or better in each courses is required for admission to the Nuclear Medicine Technology major. Students taking core curriculum will be designated a Pre- NMT Student. Augusta University students will apply for acceptance into the Nuclear Medicine Technology major when core curriculum is still in progress. All core must be complete before beginning the Nuclear Medicine Technology program. 

Transfer Students:
 If a student has complete Pre-NMT or Nuclear Medicine Technology core areas from another school in the University System of Georgia, then Augusta University will accept the areas as satisfied. A student who plans to transfer from a school not in the University System of Georgia should complete the courses that are equivalent to the Augusta University core.
Upper division NMT courses from another Nuclear Medicine Technology program cannot be transferred into the Bachelor of Science in Radiological Science with a major in Nuclear Medicine Technology Program.

*WELL 1000 Wellness (2 credit hours) and two Wellness Activity elective courses (2 credit hours) are required for graduation. Exemptions exist for transfer students with 60 credit hours or more. See: Wellness Requirement 

**These courses meet the US and GA legislative requirements for graduation. If taken at a USG or TCSG institution. See: Legislative Requirements

*** If a BIOL sequence is taken in Area D, then a PHYS or PHSC and CHEM with Lab course must be taken as well.

If a CHEM with lab sequence is taken in Area D, then a PHYS or PHSC course must be taken as well.
If a PHYS sequence is taken in Area D, then a CHEM with Lab course must be taken as well.  

****If MATH 1113 is taken in Area A; MATH 2210 is highly recommended.

***** If a student transfers less than 30 hours, they should take INQR 1000. If they transfer more than 30 hours, then an additional credit from AREA D-F, if available, will fulfill INQR 1000
