Overview
Learn in a professional, clinical environment

In 1997, in cooperation with the Prince Edward Island School of Radiography, the University of Prince Edward Island and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in Charlottetown entered an articulation agreement to enable the offering by the University of a Bachelor of Applied Science in Radiography.

  1. In order for any student to advance to the next semester of the program, the student must obtain a grade of at least 70% in each course taken in the previous semester.
  2. Attendance in all activities related to clinical/laboratory components of Radiography courses is mandatory. A student who is absent repeatedly from clinical/laboratory sessions may be required by the Dean to withdraw from a course. The Program Co-ordinator may prohibit a student from attending a clinical session if there is reasonable evidence that the student’s physical or psychological health may be detrimental to patients or patient care.
  3. Once admitted to the program, students must complete all of the required Radiography (QEH) courses in the following three academic years. Any exceptions are by special permission of the Dean.
  4. Because Radiography has a strong clinically-based component, radiographic course work does not necessarily fit within the formal academic calendar. Certain second semester Radiography courses may continue until the summer months, with completion as late as August. Students are encouraged to consult with the School of Radiography.

NOTES:

  1. Radiography courses must be taken in the prescribed sequence.
  2. Students are required to maintain satisfactory certification in CPR, as required by the QEH, throughout their program.
Admissions Criteria
What's Required for Radiography Admission?

This four-year degree program requires students to obtain approximately half their academic credits at each of the two institutions. Admission is by competition, following the process set out below, after the completion of a required set of courses in at least one year of university studies. A limited number of students are admitted each year.

High School applicants must apply as "BSc Undeclared" to complete the required prerequisite courses. An applicant is eligible to apply to the program once they are at least enrolled in all of the prerequisite courses.

The deadline is December 1 each year for September admission of the next year.

Admission requirements

Recommended first-year course schedule

Normally applicants take ten three-semester hour courses or their equivalent(s). To be considered for the program a student must complete the required Biology, Physics, Chemistry,  and Calculus requirements. Applicants who are admitted with the minimum required courses must complete any outstanding first year requirements in a subsequent semester, with Coordinator's approval required prior to registering in them.

Below is the recommended schedule for a student completing the first year prerequisite courses. 

  • Two courses in introductory Biology (BIO 1310/1320)
  • Two courses in introductory Physics (PHYS 1110/1120 or 1210/1220)
  • Two courses in introductory Chemistry (CHEM 1110/1120)
  • One course in Mathematics (MATH 1120 OR MATH 1910)
  • One Composition course (UPEI 1010 or UPEI 1020 if taken at UPEI)
  • Two courses in Introductory Psychology (PSY 1010/1020)

Students are expected to complete a degree at UPEI within a 10-year period (See Academic Regulation #2 in the Academic Calendar). To meet this regulation the prerequisite first year courses must be taken within the last six years prior to the submission of an application to the Radiography program.

Applicants who have completed any of the pre-requisite first year courses seven years prior to the anticipated start of their Radiography program should contact the coordinator of the Radiography program or the Dean of Science.

Please refer to the UPEI Academic Calendar for complete admissions information.
