Mission Statement
The mission of our program is to graduate competent radiographers who are eligible for examination with the American Registry of Radiologic Technology.

A radiologic technologist is a skilled professional who provides a specialized healthcare service. This rewarding profession involves the operation of sophisticated equipment in a rapidly expanding field. Our program prepares students as entry-level qualified licensed and registered radiographers.

Admission requirements for the Radiologic Technology curriculum include:

  • Passing the reading ACT with a minimum score of 75.
  • Completion of all required remediation.
  • A minimum grade of C+ in BIO 23 and MTH 13 by the conclusion of the spring semester prior to entry into the clinical phase of the program. The Radiologic Technology program only admits students in the fall. Pre-radiologic technology students are allowed two attempts to achieve a C+ in BIO 23 and MTH 13.
  • Possession of a pre-clinical course sequence average of 2.77 or higher in ENG 10/11, HIS 10/11, CMS 11, PSY 11 and PEA. Students who have taken these courses at another college will have to submit their transcripts.
  • Students transferring from another college may transfer the equivalents of both BIO 23 and BIO 24. Students are not allowed to transfer only one of these two courses, unless approved by the Biology Department.
  • Admission into the Radiologic Technology curriculum is based on the pre-clinical sequence. Preference is given to the highest G.P.A.
