The Radiologic Technology Program prepares students to become Radiologic Technologists (Radiographers). Medical Imaging represents the second largest Health Science profession in the nation. Radiographers work in a variety of health care settings including hospitals, clinics, and physicians' offices.
The College cannot accept all students who want to take the Radiologic Technology program. Admission to the program is limited. Screening is done once a year in late May.

In order to be eligible for admission into the program, students must successfully complete with a grade of "C" or higher all of the required 16 hours of general education courses, AHC 104*, and demonstration of computer competency. There is a May 1st deadline. All Learning Support courses in Reading and Writing as well as MATH 1000 must be completed with a "C" or higher prior to the interview process.
