The Institute of Ultrasound Diagnostics Pre-requisite Class Terms and Conditions
Please read the ALL of the following information carefully regarding the pre-requisite classes offered by the institute of ultrasound diagnostics (IUD). It is recommended that you print and keep a copy of these terms and conditions for your records.
Pre-requisite classes required by IUD for the 1 year general sonography program may be taken at any accredited college or university. IUD will only accept a “C” letter grade or higher for transferring credits. However, if you make a “C” or lower in any pre req class it is recommend you retake that class. If you are unsure if a course at another school will meet our requirements, you may send a full course description to Micah Gill for preapproval.
Applicants may only take each course with IUD once. If an applicant fails a prerequisite class taken with IUD, they will not be allowed to repeat that course with IUD.
If the course is not offered by your current school, it may be taken with IUD, only after completion of college level algebra (or a high math class) and one communications course (ex. Public Speaking, Speech, English Composition, etc.) and have at least a 2.5 overall GPA.
IUD pre-requisite class are only intended to meet the requirements of the IUD 1 year program. They are not intended for use at other schools and will not transfer. No transcripts are given or provided for IUD prerequisite classes.
Taking pre requisite course with IUD does not guarantee acceptance into the one year program. All requirements must be met and a clinical site secured before any applicant is accepted.
Courses have an instructor but are set up like a guided self-study. Self-discipline and self-motivation are required for successful completion.
Deadline for signing up and payment for IUD prerequisite is 10 days before the start of classes.

Because ultrasound is such a unique modality, training someone strictly on the job would take approximately a year or more. Having the actual classroom knowledge helps so much to understand what you are looking at while scanning. I am sure the degree of Renee’s ability is due to the Institute of Ultrasound Diagnostics and highly recommend their program.
