Following are the specific visitation instructions:

 When you go for your visitation, you need to take the following forms with you:

For access to the forms, please visit: Visitation Instructions, Guidelines and Forms


The Visitation form and the Guidelines and Acceptance form must be completed and upload by the student to the Radiology online application through your TCC portal
