The Sonography Programs Admission Committee has reviewed the situation with license/certification test cancellations and has decided to allow submission of a document that shows registration for the license/certification test even if an applicant is not able to sit for the exam before the June 26, 2020 Sonography application period deadline.

The Vocational Nursing program will use the following for the Spring 2021 ranking process:
