Radiologic Technology, Associate in Applied Science
This program prepares students for entry-level positions as radiographers (X-ray technologists). Student must attend full-time and satisfy both the didactic and clinical components to successfully complete the program.
The program is accredited by the
Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT)
20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 2850

Students learn to use complex X-ray and image processing equipment designed to record images which aid radiologists in diagnosing various health problems.
Persons interested in this program should be comfortable working with and caring for people from diverse backgrounds. They should be able to meet the academic and physical demands of the program that require a commitment of time, effort and motivation.
Students are required to complete a health history, immunization record, physical exam, essential functions acknowledgment form and drug and criminal background check prior to the first day of class. Students not passing the criminal background check and/or drug screen may be prohibited from participating in clinical education. This will prevent the student from being able to complete all program requirements for graduation.
Completion of college level medical terminology course (HIT 101 Medical Terminology or equivalent) is highly recommended.
To graduate a grade of C or better is required for all math and science courses and all courses in the area of concentration.
Graduates are eligible to sit for the national certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Employment is available in hospital radiology departments, clinics, imaging centers, outpatient surgery centers and physician offices.
The following must be completed prior to applying for admission into the Radiologic Technology program:
- MTH 030 Elementary Algebra or two semesters of high school algebra.
- BIO 111 Introductory Biology I or two semesters of high school biology with labs.
- Math and science cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale.
- Math and science courses must be completed within five calendar years of entering the program.
- Cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale.
