Students begin the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program in August of each year. The required natural science and general education courses are an important part of the program. Since admissions are highly competitive and enrollment is limited, it is strongly recommended that these natural science and general education courses be completed before applying to the program as this will improve your chances of being admitted, although taking these courses in advance does not guarantee admission.  Meeting the admissions requirements does not guarantee program acceptance. For this reason, the following criteria are used to determine which applicants will be admitted: (Please note that there is no waiting list).

      1. Associate degree program Grade Point Average (GPA)
      2. The grades earned in the BSC, PHY, and MAC courses
      3. Completion of the following courses:

If you have previously attended any college or university other than Miami Dade College, you must arrange for that institution to send official transcripts to the Admission’s Office at the Medical Campus by May 1st for an August acceptance.

Students who have attended foreign colleges must submit original transcripts and a certified English translation before February 1st to the Registrar at the Medical Campus for evaluation. For details, please call 305-237-4141. Students who have attended a foreign allied health or nursing program should consult the Miami Dade College catalog for more information about how to have their transcripts, diplomas, and credentials evaluated for U.S. equivalency.












All Medical Campus students must complete the FDLE Waiver and Statement form.This form is to authorize dissemination to Miami Dade College - Medical Campus of any national criminal history record that may pertain to you.

In addition, all program students must complete a "background check" through the identified MDC agent and cleared by the 1st day of class. Depending on your program of study an additional background check may be required. In addition, prior to entry into a clinical site, some clinical sites will require more frequent background checks and clearance.

Successful completion of the MDC level two background check process or completion of a MDC nursing/health sciences program does not guarantee a graduate's eligibility for participation in the professional credentialing process or for related employment. Credentialing agencies and health care employers may have additional eligibility criteria not required by an educational institution. Individuals who have been arrested or convicted of any felony crime during the last 15 years are strongly urged to inquire directly of the licensing board in the jurisdiction in which they intend to practice.
