No Volunteer Hours Required for 2021 PTA Application Cycle



Due to the limited opportunities for volunteer/observation hours, the PTA Program is waiving this requirement for the 2021 application cycle. You will not need a Work Skills Assessment Form from a clinician, only from PTHA 1409 faculty. You are still required to submit the Volunteer Hour Form. In the space provided, enter the following code before uploading to the PTA CAS. Your application is incomplete without this form and this code: 0s21hfVp.

Diagnostic Medical Imaging Programs Statement on “Pass” and “No Pass”



If a “P” grade is chosen for a Spring 2020 prerequisite course, the “P” grade will not be calculated in determining the GPA for ranking purposes and could impact your total ranking. This applies to Radiology, MRI, Computed Tomography, and Cardiovascular Interventional Technology applicants. For questions regarding choosing a “P” versus a performance grade (A, B, C) please contact Department Chair Jennifer Rigsby at jrigsby@austincc.edu.
