This program provides the appropriate college prerequisites to enter an accredited school of medical radiography and/or earn Liberal Arts & Sciences credit hours. Students are awarded the Associate in Science degree upon completion of the 3,000 hours of academic and supervisory instruction provided by accredited schools of medical radiography and upon completion of the 36 credit hours at the college level. MVCC equates the 3,000 hours as 30 credit hours of transfer credit. An official transcript from an accredited school of medical radiography must be forwarded to the Registrar’s Office before matriculation into the Radiologic Technology program. Students may complete prerequisites and other required course work toward the Associate degree at the College before entering an accredited school of medical radiography. Students would matriculate into the General Studies program.
