Radiation Oncology :: Apply Now

All application material for the Fall 2020 Class is due before March 15, 2020. Applicants who provide all necessary material and meet the minimum criteria by the deadline will be considered for admission. Early application is encouraged for advising purposes. By applying to VWCC and submitting your high school and college transcripts to the pre-admission advisor, we will be able to determine if you currently meet the minimum academic requirements, evaluate placement test results, and make course suggestions.

How To Apply

We require all application material(s) be submitted directly to Health Professions. If you fail to do so, be aware we will not be responsible for any delays in processing your file. Complete the following and submit in one envelope (if possible) to Pam Woody, VWCC - Health Professions, 3091 Colonial Ave., Roanoke, VA 24015.

1. Apply to VWCC.

If you are not a current VWCC student, apply to the college by completing a VWCC Application. You are encouraged to complete the application online at Please make sure you indicate your plan of study as Radiation Oncology/Pre-Admission on the college application. (Those interested in the Joint Venture with NVCC must register/complete a college application for both NVCC and VWCC prior to March 15th. If you are already active at NVCC, then do a new VWCC only. Please contact the NVCC Admissions Office or visit their website for additional instructions on applying to NVCC.)

2. Apply to the Radiation Oncology Program.

Apply to the Radiation Oncology Program by completing a 2020 Radiation Oncology Application Form.

3. Obtain your transcripts.

Have all official sealed transcripts (high school and college) and a copy of GED scores (if applicable) to submit in your application packet. We strongly suggest applicants request transcripts be sent to the applicant's mailing address, so you are fully aware of whether your request is filled and all material can be placed by you in one larger envelope for submission. Remember, do not open any envelope which contains a transcript, they are no longer "official" to us when you open them. If any school refuses to issue "official" transcripts directly to you, please request they be sent addressed directly to Pam Woody at the address above. Please do not request transcripts from VWCC, NVCC, or any other community college in Virginia (only exception).

College graduates must still provide their official HS transcript. Transcripts are also required from any hospital-based Radiologic Professions program of study attended. You must provide an official transcript from each school attended, even though courses may appear on a subsequent schools transcript as accepted "transfer". We must still receive the original institution's transcript. You should receive the Radiation Oncology pre-admission advising form letter after your complete academic file is reviewed by the Health Professions Pre-Admission Advisor (usually within 3-4 weeks if received from May-December).
