  • Course description

    The Vascular Ultrasound Technology (VU) program is a joint effort between  Rush University College of Health Science  and Lewis University. Students will complete the prerequisite courses during 2 years at Lewis University and will apply for acceptance to Rush University during their sophomore year. If accepted, the remaining coursework will be completed at Rush University and the degree B.S. in Vascular Ultrasound Technology will be awarded by Rush University upon successful completion of the program.

    Students need a minimum high school GPA of 3.25 and ACT score of 23 in order to take the first two years at Lewis University. Completion of the prerequisites does not guarantee admission into the program. Decisions concerning acceptance are solely determined by the admissions committee of Rush University College of Health Sciences. However, in the event that a student is not accepted into the VU program, the paradigm is set up in such a way that students can obtain a Biology degree from Lewis University in two additional years.

    A grade of C or better must be earned in a prerequisite course in order to advance to the next course in sequence.

    Vascular Ultrasound Technology majors may take a Biology class only two times. If a student has not achieved a minimum grade of a "C" after the second attempt, the student may not repeat the class.

    Students are required to shadow, observe a vascular ultrasound technologist, or show proof of such activity before applying to the program.

    It is the policy of Biology department to support with letters of recommendation for professional school applications, only those students who have achieved a cumulative and science GPA of 3.25. In the event that a student has his/her request for letters of recommendation denied, he/she has the right to petition for reconsideration with the understanding that there is no guarantee that the petition will be successful. Acceptance into any professional school is solely determined by the admission committee of that school. All faculty members have the right to decline a request to write a letter of recommendation for any student.

    The Biology Department will award 3 hours of credit for the general education class 02-100 (Introduction to Biology) when students have received a score of 4 or 5 on AP tests. We do not award any credit for major classes based on AP scores.
