Lansing Community College


The Radiologic Technology Program is a twenty-one month (five sequential semesters) course of study leading to an associate's degree. Students are admitted in the fall, with a limited number of openings each year. Graduates will be eligible to take the national registry examination administered 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 before enrollment in any courses.

As part of the educational training students receive hands-on experience from available clinical sites (hospitals).

The Associate Degree Program in Radiologic Technology is conducted by Lansing Community College as a contribution to the health education needs of the community whom it serves. Resources provided by the College, cooperating community hospitals, and other health agencies are utilized in the basic Radiologic Technology Program. The qualified student is provided with educational opportunities in a college environment, and shares the intellectual and social responsibilities, privileges, and experiences with college students in other disciplines.

Within this framework, the faculty and administrators assumes responsibility for planning, supervising, and evaluating selected learning experiences. These experiences are developed to meet established objectives, College requirements for the Associate Degree in Applied Science, and eligibility to write the registry examination as established by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists along with the American Society of Radiologic Technologists who establish curriculum guidelines.

Further, the Faculty believes that Radiologic Technology is a health service, shared with other health disciplines, which has a basic responsibility for promoting health, conserving life, and assisting the individual to achieve an optimum health status and self sufficiency. As a member of the patient oriented team, the radiologic technologist utilizes basic knowledge and skills which contribute to patient care and diagnostic needs.

Clinical Rotations

Delivery of imaging services has undergone significant changes over the past several years and these services are indeed a 24/7 service. Because of our program's clinical education centers being located in a variety of different counties around the Lansing area, students must have dependable transportation to any assignment. Students may expect to drive for up to an hour or more to reach a clinical site.  Students will be assigned to two (2) different clinical education centers during their time in the program. During the student's summer and 2nd year fall and spring semesters a maximum of 25% of their total clinical hours may be spent in an evening and/or weekend assignments. A student's combined didactic and clinical contact hours will not exceed 40 hours per week. Additional information regarding clinical rotations will be given to students during their program orientation.
