​​​​Admission Information​​

The University of Findlay offers a Certificate of Completion, a Bachelor of Science degree, and an Associate of Arts degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology (NMT). In the final year of your chosen degree and/or certificate, you will apply to the Nuclear Medicine Institute's (NMI) professional program. A supplemental application and acceptance to the professional program will be required.  

All prospective applicants must first apply online to the University of Findlay and are encouraged to apply at least nine to twelve months prior to the beginning class date. 

Note: University of Findlay students enrolled in the nuclear medicine technology major will receive the supplemental application for the NMI professional program from their academic advisor. All other students who are applying directly to the NMI professional program should please review the information below. 

NMI Professional Program Admission Process

Transfer, transient or non-degree seeking students applying directly to the Nuclear Medicine Institute must first apply to the University of Findlay.

When applying to the University:
  • Please select the entry term you intend to begin classes. Professional program courses begin every spring and fall. Please note: if you select a summer entry term, your application will not be accepted. You must select Spring or Fall entry.
  • Transient and non-degree seeking students should select the "Certificate Seeking" option in the application, then select "Nuclear Medicine Technology." 

Upon acceptance to the University of Findlay, you will receive a link to the online supplemental application for the NMI professional program via email. You must complete the application and submit a non-refundable $50 NMI application fee, which can be paid electronically. The supplemental application also requires three letters of reference. These letters can be from anyone (employer, guidance counselor, coach, etc.) with the exception of family members, and can be submitted via the online application form. 
 
All applicants are also required to read the NMI student brochure, which contains very important information about the NMI professional program. Click the button below to read the NMI Student Brochure.


After submitting the supplemental application, NMI will be in contact with acceptance or rejection to the program. Determination letters will be sent according to the timeline found in the NMI Student Brochure. Upon acceptance into the program, you will then begin the process to secure a clinical site. See below for information regarding the clinical site selection process.
