Curriculum Notes

  • All major courses must be graded "C" (2.0) or better.
  • Students begin their Diagnostic Ultrasound coursework in their junior year after successful completion of general and prerequisite requirements. Students enter the program as a cohort, or class, and progress through their course of study together. Courses in the curriculum are integrated and must be taken in order.
  • Students choose to pursue either a General (G), Vascular (V), or Cardiac (C) track of study.
  • Students are expected to be available the first day of the quarter through the last day of finals week.
  • Clinical placements will be made by the Diagnostic Ultrasound Program.
  • For complete information on courses, prerequisites, etc., use this information in conjunction with the online Catalog ( for the current year.

The example below assumes you have completed no degree requirements requirements and placed into Math 1021 by SAT/ACT/SU Math placement exam or college credit, students not placing into Math 1021 must take additional courses. Your personal program of study may vary from this due to prior educational experience or individual goals.
