Our Radiologic Technology Program is a selective admission, 2-year Associate of Applied Science degree program.
The program requires participation in clinical rotations.
As of January 1, 2013, students participating in clinical rotations must satisfy the prescreening requirements defined in the Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council Foundation Community Standards for Drug Screening, Background Checks and Immunizations (PDF will open in a new window).
All courses are offered only during the daytime hours.
Successful completion of this program requires a grade of C or better in all science, general education and specialized (RADR, HPRS) courses.
If you are admitted to the program with a grade of less than C in a general education course in the curriculum, you must repeat the course and earn a grade of C or better in order to complete this program.
