The Associate of Applied Science degree prepares the student for an entry-level position as an Electroneurodiagnostic Technician for employment in hospitals, doctors' offices and clinics. Electroneurodiagnostic technology is a profession devoted to the recording and study of electrical activity of the brain and nervous system. Used for medical evaluation and research, it includes procedures that assess the function of the nervous system. Technologists record electrical activity arising primarily from the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. This program consists of on-campus didactic and laboratory instruction, as well as off-campus clinical experiences at our affiliated health care institutions.

Program Admission Requirements

Application may be submitted to the Health Careers Enrollment Center after meeting the following requirements:

  • High School Diploma/GED
  • Complete ENG-1010 College Composition I or ENG-101H Honors College Composition I or ENG-1020 College Composition II with "C" or higher.
  • Complete the following: BIO-1100 Introduction to Biological Chemistry; or CHEM-1010 Introduction to Inorganic Chemistry and CHEM-1020 Introduction to Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry; and BIO-2331 Anatomy and Physiology I (“C” grade or higher in each). It is recommended that BIO-2341 Anatomy and Physiology II be completed prior to entering the program.
  • Complete MATH-1240 Contemporary Mathematics or higher. MATH-1820 Independent Study/Research in Mathematics/MATH-2820 Independent Advanced Study/Research in Mathematics may not be used to meet this requirement.
  • GPA required: 2.0 admissions/core courses requirements, 2.5. overall.

Other Information

  • 16 students accepted per year.
  • Applicants who are non-native speakers of English are required to have completed the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a minimum internet based test (iBT) score of 24 in the speaking component and a minimum iBT score of 22 in the listening component. This requirement is due to the program’s professional technical standards for written and verbal communication skills. Preparation for the test is highly recommended. Cuyahoga Community College offers a preparation course for the TOEFL. Preparation for, scheduling of and costs incurred for the TOEFL are the sole responsibility of the student. Visit www.ets.org for more information about the test. This test must be taken even if you have become an American citizen. Students should consider taking the following coursework to assist them in attaining the minimal scores: ESL-1331 English as a Second Language: Speaking and Listening III and ESL-1480 TOEFL Preparation. For more information about English as a Second Language offerings at Cuyahoga Community College, visit http://www.tri-c.edu/programs/liberalarts/esl/Pages/default.aspx
  • Criminal background check required.
  • Clinical observation visit required (see details in application packet).
  • Pre-admission status may be offered if admissions requirements are incomplete; however, no student will be admitted into the program until all prerequisites and observation are successfully completed. Contact Mike Cassida at 216-987-5654.
  • Core courses may be repeated only once to improve a grade below “C”.
  • Courses used as prerequisites, core courses, as well as all Electroneurodiagnostic specialty courses, MUST have a traditional letter grade. The Pass/No Pass (P/NP) grading option for prerequisites, core and specialty courses will NOT be accepted to meet program graduation requirements.
  • Candidates will be required to present documentation of good health verified by a physician examination and immunizations prior to being granted permission to enter clinical training and CPR certification. Please refer to the health requirements for health career students.
  • Accepted applicants must attend a group information session prior to Fall Semester.
