Individuals may apply for the major of diagnostic ultrasound as freshmen or transfer students from other colleges. Transfer applicants and change of major students will be considered according to admission requirements of the College of Science and Engineering and the department of diagnostic ultrasound. Some supplementary materials are required with transfer student applications. Applicants are encouraged to participate in volunteer or paid health care related activities that promote the development of communication and interpersonal skills and provide an opportunity to evaluate their own suitability to work with patients and the public. All majors are required to meet with program faculty prior to progressing to the third year. You may also search the 2012-2013 Seattle University Undergraduate Catalog.
