The 63 SCH Radiologic Technology Program prepares students for entry-level positions in hospitals, clinics and doctors’ offices performing procedures that produce images of the patients for diagnosis by physicians. Each student will be assisted in the pursuit of technical competence through lectures, demonstrations, supervised study and practical experience. A graduate of the program is awarded an Associate of Applied Science degree.

The Radiologic Technology Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology, 20 N. Wacker Dr., Suite 2850, Chicago, IL, 60606-3182, (312) 704-5300, www.jrcert.org, and graduates are eligible to apply for admission for the certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

Students are accepted into the Radiologic Technology Program in the spring semester of each year. Admission to the program is based upon evidence of intellectual characteristics which are assumed to be consistent with a successful career in radiologic technology. Students are required to obtain a criminal background screening and must meet acceptable established criteria. The number of students admitted into the program is limited to the space available in clinical agencies. The Radiologic Technology program begins in the Summer II semester.

Students are encouraged to take supporting courses prior to admission into the program. Supporting courses include all courses other than those designated with an “RADR” preceding the course number. Radiology courses must be taken in the order listed.

Radiologic Technology admission forms, criteria and admission procedures are available from the Radiologic Technology Program Director, located in the Multipurpose Building. Applications to the Radiologic Technology Program are due by April 15 of each year. Applicants must pass all sections of the TSI Assessment Exam, an approved alternative test, or be exempted from the test. Those failing one or more sections may reapply after passing the test. A minimum grade of “C” must be earned in all courses required on the Recommended Program of Study. Students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average while enrolled in the Radiologic Technology Program.
