Students enrolling starting in fall 2013 and subsequent years have to meet an additional degree requirement established by the America Registry of Radiologic Technology (ARRT). Those graduating in January 2015 and beyond will not be eligible to sit for the national registry exam administered by the ARRT without an associate’s degree or higher. The degree does not need to be health care related; however, WellSpan’s Radiography Program has listed several prerequisite requirements for program entrance. In addition, the program will only accept regionally accredited college degrees and credits, such as Middle State Association of Colleges and Schools, New England Association of Colleges and Schools, North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
Students enrolled in the program from 2013 and beyond will be required to have an associate’s degree or higher or be eligible to receive an associate’s degree or higher upon completion of the program.
Students are required to meet the program’s prerequisites, which include Mathematical Logical Reasoning (College Algebra or higher), Written/Oral Communication, Human Anatomy and Physiology I (4 credit course minimum), Human Anatomy and Physiology II (4 credit course minimum) A&P I & II must be completed at the same college institution, and Medical Terminology (1 credit course minimum or certificate).
