Degree Map: Radiography AAS


Program Requirements

All Radiography courses must be completed within a period of three years after being accepted into the program.  This allows for repetition of only one semester of Radiography courses. All RADT courses must be completed with a “C” or better.  If a student fails a Radiography course, re-admission to the program the following year is not guaranteed, and is dependent on clinical placement availability.

Course Sequencing

This degree map provides the semester-by-semester course sequencing a full-time student will follow to complete this degree. The Radiography program consists of 48 credit hours of Radiography courses (didactic and clinical) and 22 hours of related general education courses. Lecture and clinical courses run concurrently throughout the two years. Clinical education classes consist of complete eight-hour shifts for two to three days per week in the assigned clinical education center.

Note the Milestones below each semester.  Milestones are reminders of actions you should take during that semester to help keep you on track for degree completion.
