Radiologic Technology Degree
As the population grows and ages, radiologic technologists will be in high demand. With age comes increased incidence of illness and injury, which often requires diagnostic imaging to plan a course for care. Diagnostic imaging is also used to monitor the progress of treatment, and with the increasing success of medical technologies in treating disease, even more diagnostic imaging will be needed. Employment is expected to increase much faster than the average for most occupations. Those with knowledge of more than one diagnostic imaging procedure will have the best opportunities.
MVCC's Radiologic Technology program prepares students to transfer with full junior-level status to a four-year institution in a related field of study, or to secure employment in the radiology field. The program also prepares students for state licensing examinations.

- The Health Studies: Radiologic Technology Associate in Science Degree 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 AAS 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 coursework toward the associate degree at the college before entering an accredited school of medical radiography. Students would matriculate into the General Studies program.
- Students have the choice of earning a diploma (school confers) following completion of the 3,000 hours of instruction or the degree (college confers) after completion of the 30 hours of transfer credit and the 36 hours of college-level credits.
- Completion of Liberal Arts & Sciences requirements under the Radiologic Technology program at MVCC does not guarantee admission to an accredited school of medical radiography. Students must apply directly to accredited schools of medical radiography for acceptance into their programs.
- High school chemistry with lab (Regents 70 or high school course score of 75) within five years of admission to the program.
- High school biology is recommended within 10 years of entrance into the program.
- An appropriate Mathematics Placement Test result, or MA045 Basic Math Skills or MA050 Introductory Mathematics.
