Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0196  (Effective Fall 2002 - Summer 2004)

Radiologic technologists, also called radiographers, operate X-ray equipment
under the direction of a physician, taking radiographs of internal parts of
the body.  Most often radiologic technologists are employed in hospitals,
clinics and physician offices.  Graduates of the program will be eligible for
examination by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).  Not
all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to
transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any

This is a selective admission program.  In order to be considered as a
candidate for this program, students must meet basic admission requirements
beyond those required for admission to the college.  Many of the courses for
this program are open only to students officially admitted to the Radiologic
Technology Program.

Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section
for skills assessment and advising information.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific course work in
mathematics.  See the General Education Core Requirements section for
information on how to fulfill these requirements.

The admission and/or graduation requirements for this program may change each
academic year.  The program requirements below apply only to those students
who have been admitted to the program for the 2002/2003 academic year.  For
