Notes and Additional Curriculum Options

Course substitutions may be available. Please see an advisor for more information. Applicants must be ARRT registered.

This curriculum is typically offered in a 10-week summer semester. Students have the option of NOT completing the RAD 196 clinical class requirement; however, without clinical competencies, the student is ineligible to apply to sit for the ARRT Registry examination, nor does the student complete MQSA requirements. Students can complete those competencies through employment, if their employer provides those cross-training opportunities.
