Radiologic Technology

The mission of the Radiologic Technology program is to prepare radiographers who are competent and who respond to the needs of the patient and the needs of the organization. Technological advances in the medical field have increased the demand for entry-level radiographers who will perform tasks that include assisting the physician, caring for the critically ill, and performing x-ray exams for patients in the operating room, emergency room, and in the radiology department.

Program Information/Advisement
Group information/advisement sessions are conducted each term by the program advisors. Please schedule an appointment with one of the advisors if you need additional assistance and/or information after attending a group information/advisement session.

Competitive Progression Process
Radiologic is a competitive progression program. Students who meet the College criteria for admission will be admitted to the program as a candidate for progression to take prerequisite courses. Students must by the designated deadline (refer to page 15 in the College Catalog): complete all of the prerequisite courses with a minimum GPA of 2.75 on a 4.0 scale;  and (b) submit a Request for Progression Form to the Admission Office on the Augusta Campus or Student Services on the Branch Campuses to be eligible for progression evaluation. The program progression criteria determine the academic/ranking order for selection of students for progression to the courses with the RADT prefixes.
