16 students are admitted each summer session.
This checklist does not guarantee admission into the LLCC Radiography (RAD) Program. It is to be used for guiding purposes only and to assist the student in determining if ready to apply to the program.
It is the student’s responsibility to notify LLCC Admission/Records/Registration when requirements have been met. Applications must be turned in by the last Friday in January at 5 p.m., to be considered for that year’s summer session program start.
Admission and program requirements are subject to change.
- High school transcript with proof of graduation or GED certificate on file in LLCC Admission/Records/Registration. For high school seniors applying prior to graduation, a letter from a school official documenting the student’s ability to graduate must accompany the student’s application.
- Attend an informational session given by the Radiography Program director.

Chapter 112, Section 103-17, of the Illinois Public Community College Act requires that whenever enrollment in a program must be restricted because of space limitations, a college must give preference to district residents. Consequently, admission to Health Career programs for students who live outside of LLCC District #526 vary per program based on space available and qualified applicant pools.
