Radiography (2254)

Associate in Science

MISSION STATEMENT: Creating competent, ethical, confident entry-level healthcare practitioners committed to professional development through life-long learning in a positive, non-discriminatory and supportive learning environment.

THE CAREER: Graduates of non-college credit educational programs often find an A.S. degree is helpful in addition to their professional credentials, particularly when interested in pursuing a career in management, education or sales.

THE PROGRAM: This program is designed for students who have completed approved radiography educational programs and are currently on the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). This program will not prepare students to be radiographers.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: To apply to the program, students must:

  1. Have a valid FCCJ student number.
  2. Satisfactorily complete all college preparatory courses needed.
  3. Furnish proof of completion of a radiographic technology program, and proof of attainment of the ARRT credential.
  4. Via student affairs, ensure they are degree-seeking and majoring in radiography (2254).

NOTE: This associate in science degree program allows students to become employed and pursue a bachelors degree. For details refer to university transfer requirements.
