This program is designed to provide requisite course background prior to admission into a Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT)-approved school of radiologic technology (during the student’s third and fourth years) and successful completion thereof. Likewise, this program is constructed to provide the appropriate academic credentials to allow students to participate in the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Certification Examination at the completion of the clinical radiologic technology program. Additionally, this program serves an entry point for a B.S. in Radiologic Technology.

In order to obtain an A.A. degree from the University of Sioux Falls, a student must complete a total of at least 64 semester hours. The requirement of 32 semester hours in residence at the University is not waived for students in the A.A. program in Radiologic Technology.

USF is not officially affiliated with any radiologic technology program and cannot guarantee admittance to any JRCERT-approved program, since each individual program has its own requirements and standards which must be met by the student. However, a student successfully completing the University of Sioux Falls program will be in a competitive position with regard to most radiologic technology programs.
