  • Must be patched by operating system company regularly;
  • Modern browser such as the latest Chrome or Internet Explorer/Edge; and
  • Must run a modern and updated anti-virus solution

Travel to off-campus clinical rotations

Students are required to travel to off-campus clinical rotations in the Jackson area. Therefore, students should be prepared to provide their own transportation and other incidental expenses during these clinical rotations.

Withdrawal/tuition refunds

The Nuclear Medicine Technology curriculum is designed to be sequential (i.e., all courses for each semester are prerequisites for courses in subsequent semesters). Students are not allowed to withdraw from a single class without withdrawing from the entire program. When a student becomes interested in withdrawing from the program, the UMMC Bulletin provides details regarding the institution's withdrawal policy and related tuition refunds. Additionally, withdrawal dates are highlighted on the academic calendar provided on the School of Health Related Professions webpage.
