Effective January 1, 2015 program graduates will be required by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) to have earned an academic degree to be eligible to sit for their certification examination.
Therefore, prior to enrollment into Reid’s radiography program, students must provide proof they will meet the ARRT’s academic degree criterion by one of the following:
Earned an associates degree or higher acceptable to the ARRT. The degree does not have to be in the radiologic sciences.
Completed the coursework outlined in the Associates Degree Option made available through the Reid Hospital—Ivy Tech Community College partnership. This coursework must be successfully completed prior to enrollment in radiography program classes. Coursework does not have to be completed prior to application.
