In order to obtain a B.S. degree in Radiologic Technology from USF, you must complete a total of at least 68 semester hours of university work, complete a 24-month JRCERT-approved program in radiologic technology and pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Certification Examination. Upon successful completion of the Radiologic Technology program and passing of the board examination, 60 semester hours of blanket credit in Radiologic Technology will be transferred to USF and you will receive a bachelor's degree in Radiologic Technology. An individual who is already a certified radiologic technologist may receive 60 s.h. of blanket credit in Radiologic Technology after satisfying all other requirements listed above to receive a B.S. degree from USF.

The University of Sioux Falls is not officially affiliated with any hospital 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 USF program will be in a competitive position with regard to most radiologic technology programs.
