JFK Muhlenberg Snyder School of Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Union County College offer a 2½ year Amplified Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program, which includes fall, winter, spring and summer semesters. Graduates will receive both a Diploma in Diagnostic Medical Sonography and an Associate in Science Degree.
The diagnostic medical sonography program is a 2½-year day program. It consists of general education college credits and credits in professional diagnostic medical sonography courses with clinical experience.

Is there a waiting list for admissions?

There is no waiting list for admissions. However, there may be a waiting list for diagnostic medical sonography clinical courses. Enrollment for the professional diagnostic medical sonography courses is determined by date of admittance, satisfactory completion of the science and other general education course requirements and seat availability.
The general education courses are offered day, evening and weekend hours. The professional diagnostic medical sonography courses are held during regular daytime hours, as are all the clinical assignments. There are no weekend classes or clinical rotations.
Applications are processed on a rolling basis for either fall or spring entrance. See Admission Requirements.
No. It is neither recommended nor necessary to do so. The JFK Muhlenberg Snyder School of Diagnostic Medical Sonography program consists of two parts: the general education courses (prerequisites to the Diagnostic Medical Sonography professional courses), which include science and liberal arts courses, and the diagnostic medical sonography courses (professional/clinical). While advanced standing may be awarded, courses are not pre-requisites for acceptance. You do not have to attend Union County College first (or any other college) before applying to the JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools' Diagnostic Medical Sonography program.

The term "pre-requisite" is not the same as the term "admission requirements." Pre-requisite courses are courses that must be completed before progressing to the next course. The pre-requisite courses listed in the School of Diagnostic Medical Sonography curriculum are part of the diagnostic medical sonography program. They are not admission requirements. Therefore, you do not have to complete them prior to applying for admission.

There are Admission Requirements for the JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools. Also there is Additional Admission Information which addresses additional criteria and supplemental information to the application process. 

A cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above for all general education and science courses is required for graduation. Students must obtain a 2.5 (“C+”) or above in all professional courses. Since many of the courses are sequential, the student must successfully pass the course and attain the required grade prior to advancing.

No. Application for Admission requires the submission of an Essay along with the Application for Admissions.

However, if the Application and Essay are completed, you can drop off the packet at the JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools along with your Application Fee of $75 paid by certified check or money order. Credit Card payments can be made online at and click on the On-line Payment button in right hand margin or go directly to our (JFK Medical Center) online payment portal. We accept VISA, Mastercard & Discover. American Express is NOT accepted.

If you are not a U.S. citizen, you must present in person your Permanent Resident Card or Naturalization paper.

Note: The JFK Muhlenberg Harold B. and Dorothy A. Snyder School of Diagnostic Medical Sonography Curriculum includes science, general education and professional diagnostic medical sonography courses. While many sections are offered, registration into these courses cannot be guaranteed. Registration for all diagnostic medical sonography courses is on a seat availability basis. Seat availability means that students with advanced standing are not guaranteed enrollment in radiography courses for the semester they prefer. Students may register for other required general education courses. All biology courses (Anatomy I and II) have a five-year time limit; physics has a ten-year time limit. Consult the Curriculum Design page of the Schools' Catalog for additional information.
