The Radiography program prepares students to be radiographers, skilled health care professionals who use radiation to produce images of the human body. Coursework includes clinical rotations to area health care facilities, radiographic exposure, image processing, radiographic procedures, physics, pathology, patient care and management, radiation protection, quality assurance, anatomy and physiology, and radiobiology. Graduates of accredited programs are eligible to apply to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists' national examination for certification and registration as medical radiographers. Graduates may be employed in hospitals, clinics, physicians' offices, medical laboratories, government agencies, and industry.

The Radiography program is a limited enrollment program and uses a competitive admissions procedure with a point system – NOT a waiting list - to determine who can register for the RAD classes. Applicants are ranked based on points that are determined by grades earned in the general education classes required for the Radiography program – such as ENG 111, PSY 150, and BIO 163. Grades of "C" or better are required in all program-related curriculum classes.
Please note the following: (1) BIO classes must have been completed within 5 years of the first RAD class. (2) MAT 110 or equivalent must be completed within 10 years of the first RAD class.
The following items below are requirements for the Radiography program selection process and must be submitted by the program application deadline:
Submit a separate program application for the Associate Degree Radiography program. Please email your completed program application to [email protected].
The Radiography program application deadline is January 31st for the fall class.
The Radiography program application deadline is July 31st for the spring class.
Note: A new Radiography application must be submitted for every deadline. Submission of a program application does not guarantee acceptance.

Submit official TEAS scores by the program application deadline. It is advisable to take the TEAS after you have completed ENG 111 and BIO 163.
