Application process

The NMT program is divided into 2 distinct phases. They have been designed to help you earn your degree quickly and affordably and to give you the flexibility on where you take your classes. 

  •  Application Process Overview
    1. Apply to Ferris - Start by completing your free application to Ferris. You can learn more and get started on our application page. You'll also find answers to some common questions.
    2. Complete Pre-Qualification Coursework - Composed of courses that will help you build the foundation you will need to excel in advanced classes later on, you must complete the pre-qualification coursework to move forward in the program. You can find the full list of courses and requirements below. Your pre-qualification coursework can be completed at your local community college (or another accredited institution) or our main campus in Big Rapids. Each option has advantages. Meet with our advisor to discover what will work best for you. 
    3. Apply for the Professional Sequence - You must apply to the final portion of the program - we call it the Professional Sequence - before you can get started. You can find the application information below. Our advisor can answer any questions you have about the application process.

You will develop a deep understanding of PET, CT and MR imaging, explore pharmacology and build the skills to become a leader in healthcare. You will complete your Professional Sequence exclusively at our Grand Rapids location, just steps away from the world-class facilities and opportunities of the Medical Mile. The Professional Sequence cohort begins every Summer semester.
