Radiologic Technology


Lincoln Campus and Online

Types of Jobs Available

Radiologic technologists work in hospitals, clinics, doctors’ offices, and private/ governmental institutions. Graduates are eligible to work in any state once they have earned their board certification and attained necessary state licensure.

Program Overview

The program teaches the safe use of radiation to produce images of the human body for diagnostic purposes. Students will acquire the knowledge and skills required for critical thinking, problem solving and effective communication in the radiologic technology field, and learn how to practice within the ethical, professional and legal boundaries required.

Upon completion of the program, graduates receive an Associate of Applied Science degree and are eligible to take the national examination of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, and apply for state licensure. Individuals who have been convicted of, or plead guilty to, a felony or misdemeanor may not be eligible to sit for the ARRT exam and work as a medical radiographer. The student may file a pre-application with the ARRT in order to obtain a ruling on the impact of their eligibility for examination.

This program is located on the Lincoln Campus and online. The clinical courses are supervised and held at pre-approved accredited medical centers. Students are responsible for their own transportation and will rotate between rural and metropolitan hospitals, long-term care facilities and various clinics.
