This major is a four-year course of study leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology. The degree is structured as a 3-plus-one program. The first three years are conducted at WLC, where general education and pre-professional requirements are completed. The last year is completed via an accredited, hospital-based program through Froedtert or Marshfield Clinic. (Please note: completion of the course work at WLC does not guarantee admission into the clinical training program.) 

To declare a Nuclear Medicine Technology Major:

  • Completion of core courses outlined below, plus 30 additional credits from a clinical training placement 
  • At least 15 credits in residence of 300 level or above courses (will be completed via clinical training placements) 
  • Exit cumulative GPA of 2.5 in major (although a > 3.0 GPA is recommended for internship competitiveness)

Campus Residency Statement


Students are exempt from the residency requirement during their clinical internship (years 3 & 4) for the Radiologic Technology & Diagnostic Medical Sonography majors | (year 4) for the Nuclear Medicine Technology. If students wish to live on campus during their clinical internship, they may apply through the Director of Residence Life.

Students who choose to live off-campus during their clinical internship are encouraged to continue participation in a wide range of campus events (athletic competitions, chapel services, guest lecture series, musical concerts, plays, and other social events). However, they will not be eligible to participate in intercollegiate sports due to scheduling conflicts nor will they have access to on campus health services or IT support as they will no longer be charged student support or health fees.

For the vast majority of students, tuition and scholarships will remain unchanged during clinical internship training; however, students that receive tuition remission (i.e. children of faculty/staff at WLC) will be asked to pay a minimum of $7,500 per year tuition.
