A new Radiography class is selected for each fall semester.
This phase is the students who are currently not enrolled in or eligible for admission into the professional Radiography courses phase. Students in this phase can take all of the general education and speech fundamentals required for the Radiography major. They can study full or part time and in the day or evening. All seven pre-requisites must be completed by the end of the spring semester. Admission into the professional phase is not guaranteed once preprofessional course work is completed.
The Radiography Program is strictly a day program (no evenings or weekends). The candidate will complete 1100 hours in didactic courses and 1500 hours in clinical education. Interested candidates must attend one of the eight mandatory information sessions. The information sessions are held once a month from June until February. The information session dates are on the programâ€™s webpage. The information session will provide the candidate with programâ€™s check sheet program application and brochure. The deadline for the program application is March 1. Candidates must be accepted for admission to the college before the program application can be filed.
