How to Apply

Individuals may apply for the Diagnostic Ultrasound, Bachelor of Science (BS) degree major as incoming first-year students or as junior-level transfer students from other colleges. Individuals who have already earned a bachelor's degree may apply for the Diagnostic Ultrasound Post-Baccalaureate degree or Post-Baccalaureate Certificate. 

Please note that internal transfers (students who have already started at SU) will be admitted on a space-available basis due to the constraints with clinical placements and the need to limit the size of each cohort.

Application Requirements

  • Seattle University Transfer Application. All supplemental application materials are included in this application. 
  • $60 non-refundable application fee (waiver options available).
  • Official transcripts from all colleges and universities where credit was earned or attempted
  • Applicants for whom English is not a native language must provide proof of English proficiency regardless of citizenship status. Applicants must demonstrate English proficiency at non-English Language Culture Bridge program level. More information is available here.

Both applications request a list of coursework in progress, a ranking of Vascular, General or Cardiac tracks and essays describing your interest in Diagnostic Ultrasound and Seattle University. 

All students have the opportunity to rank their interest in a vascular, general or cardiac sonography track focus. Track placements will be determined based on available clinical spots.
