Record of Conviction of a Crime

The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) will determine a Radiography program graduate’s eligibility for credentialing when there is an arrest/conviction record. Convicted felons must pre–apply to the ARRT to determine eligibility. Students should contact the ARRT at 651.687.0048 between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. (EST) for questions concerning eligibility requirements. The ARRT must declare the student eligible before the student enrolls in the Radiography program.


Most clinical agencies require students to undergo drug screen and criminal background checks prior to placement in the agencies for clinical experiences. Students whose drug screening and criminal background checks are deemed unsatisfactory may be denied access to clinical experiences by the clinical agencies. Failure to qualify for and meet clinical requirements at clinical sites may prevent completion of the program. Withdrawal from the program may be necessary if students cannot be placed for clinical experiences.

The cost of the background check and drug screen is borne by the student. Additionally, it is the student’s responsibility to have all paperwork completed by the program’s published deadline.

Students who are unable to complete the clinical requirements after acceptance into selective access programs are not eligible for refunds of tuition.
