The Radiologic Technology [RT] Program is designed for the student who plans to enter the job force immediately. After successful completion of the required curriculum, students will be awarded the Associate of Applied Science Degree. Students will then be eligible to take the National Registry Examination in Radiography given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Because of the limited clinical spaces available, admission to the program is highly competitive. Priority consideration for acceptance will be given to students who have completed all support courses and general education requirements. To be considered for acceptance into the RT Program the student must have completed all application procedures. Continue your visit on our RT website and read through the "Information Links" for program information and the application process.The application packet contains helpful program information.
The RT program received a $100,000 grant for new x-ray equipment and a Computed Radiography (CR) unit. The new equipment includes a four-way float top and elevating table, a digital display control panel, and a Agfa CR 30 XE computed radiography unit. The use of CR technology eliminates the use of x-ray film & the darkroom. Even with the latest innovations in the classroom, students continue to learn the methods of taking a traditional x-ray with film & darkroom development to assure well-rounded training.
Graduates will then be eligible to take the National Registry Examination in Radiography given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (AART). Visit the AART website to see detailed information about State Licensing and AART Certification and Registration.

The JRCERT promotes excellence in education and enhances quality and safety of patient care through the accreditation of educational programs. The only agency recognized by the United States Department of Education to accredit educational programs in radiography and radiation therapy.
Programs accredited by the JRCERT must demonstrate that they are in substantial compliance with the relevant JRCERT accreditation standards: Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Radiologic Sciences. In 2013,the Radiologic Technology Program was reviewed by the JRCERT for continuing accreditation status. The program was found to be in full compliance with all the Standards and was awarded the maximum 8 years of accreditation.
