The Radiologic Science program is a two-year curriculum leading to an Associate of Science degree in Radiologic Science. Program completion generally requires 3 years for students who begin the core curriculum courses immediately following high school and progress to acceptance into the Radiologic Science Program. The program is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (20 N. Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL 60606-3182, 312-704-5300, or JRCERT.org).

Upon completion of the program, the student is eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT.org) national registry examination for certification as a Registered Radiologic Technologist. Students who matriculate from the program and pass the ARRT exam may use the initials A.S., R.T. (ARRT) after their name. Example: Jane Smith, A.S., R.T. (ARRT). The program prepares the student for entry-level technologist positions in hospitals, clinics or private physician’s offices; however, the program does not guarantee a job at any facility upon completion of the program. Many four-year institutions offer elective credit for successful completion of the ARRT examination. This allows program graduates an increased opportunity to pursue a baccalaureate degree.
