Associate of Applied Science Degree

This program provides radiologic technology and clinical experience with general education courses in the arts and sciences and is designed to prepare persons for the safe use of x-ray equipment in clinical settings under the supervision of a radiologist or other physician. Students are eligible to take the national credentialing examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists upon successful completion of the prescribed curriculum. The Texas Department of State Health Services, Medical Radiologic Technologist Certification Program also requires that graduates of the Radiography Program apply for State Certification/Licensure. It should be noted that both of these agencies require that the applicant disclose any history of felonies or misdemeanors. Applicants with a history of a felony or misdemeanor should contact the program department chair for additional information and may also submit a Pre-Application Review of Eligibility Form to the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists to determine their eligibility to take the credentialing examination.

The Program is nationally accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology, 20 North Wacker Drive, Suite 2850. Chicago, IL 60606-2901; phone (312) 704-5300; Website: www.jrcert.org.

ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE DOES NOT GUARANTEE ADMISSION TO THE RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM AND ENROLLMENT IS LIMITED.

In order to meet requirements of clinical agencies, criminal background checks and drug screenings for all Health Sciences students are now required as part of the admissions process.

Students accepted into the program are required to have a physical examination, provide documentation of immunization, and must verify annual tuberculosis status.
