Radiologic Technology (RAL.APP)

Extended Degree – Associate in Applied Science

Health Sciences

Southfield Campus

The Radiologic Technology program leads to an associate in applied science degree and is designated as an extended degree program in that students must complete a minimum of 73 or more required credit hours.  The program prepares selected individuals through theory and clinical experiences to practice safely and ethically as a Radiologic Technologist in a variety of health care settings.  Successful completion of the program, fulfills the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) educational requirement necessary to apply to take the national credentialing examination offered by the ARRT.  Satisfactory achievement on this examination qualifies the graduate to practice as a Certified and Registered Radiologic Technologist, R .T. (R).

The course of study combines general education in the humanities, biological, and behavioral sciences with instruction in the theory and practice of radiologic technology.  All Major Requirement (RAD) courses must be completed with a grade of “C” or higher.

Program Admission Procedures

Students must first be admitted to the college and must designate radiologic technology (RAL.APP) as their curriculum. Admission to the college does not guarantee admission to the Radiologic Technology program. Each year, a limited number of students are admitted through a selection procedure.  Basic admission requirements include:

  • High school diploma or completion of GED
  • Declaration of Radiologic Technology as the designated curriculum choice.
  • Attendance at an Information Session.
  • Completion of all Required Supportive courses with a grade of “B” or higher.
  • Completion of General Education requirements with a grade of “B” or higher.
  • Apply to the program with a counselor at the Southfield campus by March 1st.
  • Attendance at a Record Review session - March.

Students who are eligible for the program are notified in writing no later than June 1.  All requirements and procedures for admission as outlined in the Radiologic Technology Information Sessions must be completed by April 30 of the year in which the student is intended to enroll in the program.

In order to be eligible to take the national credentialing examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, students must successfully complete all requirements of the program.

The Radiologic Technology program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

A mandatory criminal history check with fingerprinting and drug screening will be conducted on all students selected to the Radiologic Technology program, prior to the start of the program, at the student's expense.

  1. Conviction of a felony or conviction of any attempt to commit a felony within the 15 years immediately preceding the date of the criminal history check; or
  2. Conviction of a misdemeanor within the 10 years immediately preceding the criminal history check, or
  3. A positive drug screen will preclude eligibility for admission.

In addition to the regular tuition, Radiography students incur extra costs including, but not limited to; books, liability insurance, health examination, uniforms, supplies, required vaccinations, CPR, travel, registry application and certification fees.
