Program Requirements

Students begin the Radiography Program in the Fall (August) of each year. A total of 77 credits must be completed for this degree. Since selection is highly competitive and enrollment is limited, it is strongly recommended that these general education courses be completed before requesting a milestone review to determine eligibility to progress to the discipline milestone of the program. However, please note that taking these courses in advance does not guarantee progression to the discipline milestone of the program. For this reason, the following criteria are used to determine which students will progress to the discipline phase of the program. (Please note that there is no waiting list).

1. Associate degree program Grade Point Average (GPA)
2. The grade earned in the BSC, MAC, and RTE 1000 courses
3. Completion of the following courses:
