Becoming a Nuclear Medicine Technology BS Student

Becoming a University at Buffalo Student

Admission to UB is based on a holistic review. We consider high school average, class rank (where applicable), strength of the high school academic record and SAT or ACT scores. A personal essay, recommendations, documented creative talent, demonstrated leadership, community service and special circumstances are also considered. For the 2019 admitted freshman class, UB reported an average GPA range from 90-96, an average ACT score of 24-30 and an average SAT score of 1180-1350.
The following is not required for admission, but is suggested as adequate preparation for university-level coursework:

  • Four years of English (with a substantial writing component).
  • Four years of social studies.
  • Three years of college-preparatory science.
  • Three years of a second language.
  • Three years of college-preparatory mathematics.

Freshman Admission to the Program

Freshman students who enter the University as declared Nuclear Medicine Technology majors are admitted into the program on a conditional basis. A seat in NMT for these students is guaranteed if they meet the 3 conditions listed: (1) the student makes satisfactory progress towards the completion of all lower division math and science prerequisite courses in the first 2 years, (2) attains a grade of C or better in all required math and science prerequisite courses completed, and (3) the student attains a minimum math and science prerequisite GPA of 3.000. Students entering via the Freshman Admissions Policy must submit the online application through the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical website by January 15th of the sophomore year.

Decisions regarding acceptance are made by early February of the spring semester. Note: If a student has more than one course to complete in the summer, they are not considered eligible.
