CURRICULUM GUIDE

Radiologic Technology
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0196  (Effective Fall 2003 - Summer 2005)

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
course. This program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education
in Radiologic Technology.

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.

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 2003/2004 academic year.  For
the most recent and complete information, interested students should contact

      Technology Program have fulfilled the requirements for this Core area.
2.    Students completing "REQUIREMENTS" have fulfilled the requirements for
      this Core area.
BIOL 201 must be completed prior to admission to the Radiologic Technology
Program as part of the Phase I requirements for admission. MATH 112 is also
required for admission and may be waived by successfully passing the MATH 112
proficiency exam. Beginning with Fall 2004, BIOL 201, BIOL 202, and MATH 112
or proficiency must all be completed prior to admission. The program admits
students in the fall semester only. Students who for any reason are unable to
follow the course sequence suggested below (for example, those who have
transferred in courses from another school, or have prerequisites to fulfill)
should contact an academic advisor or counselor for help with adjustments.
Although not a requirement, it is strongly recommended that students complete
Limited Choice Requirements before entry into the program.
