Readmission Guidelines

Applicants who have failed or withdrawn from any LSCS sonography program will be considered on an individual basis. Readmission is not automatic. It is based on remediation of an identified problem area and space availability. Students who wish to be readmitted must interview with the program's Readmission Committee and follow current readmission guidelines.

At this interview, the student will be asked to describe what steps have been taken in the intervening months to improve the chance of success and an action plan for improvement of academic and/or clinical performance. In addition, students seeking readmission must submit three letters of their standing from the prior sonography program. One letter should be a "report of status" from the former program director. Readmission into the sonography program must occur within one year of non-completion. A student may be readmitted into the sonography one time only.

Transfer Guidelines

An individual's request to transfer into any LSCS sonography program will be reviewed on an individual basis by the program director, and only after meeting Lone Star College entrance requirements.  Transfer students must meet all admission requirements of the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program.  It is recommended to allow a minimum of three months for processing. Class placement is based on previous achievement and space availability. Admission is considered only if prior program enrollment has been within one (1) year and the candidate is in good standing in a program or in previous program. All of the following steps must be completed for consideration.

  1. Completion of official transfer application.
  2. Written statement from the student describing his/her reasons for originally leaving the program.
  3. Submit current official transcripts from any colleges or universities that the student has attended.
  4. Submit three letters of his/her standing from the prior sonography program. One letter should be a "report of status" from the former program director.
