Admission to the program is based upon evidence of intellectual characteristics which are assumed to be consistent with a successful career in radiologic technology. The number of students admitted into the program is limited to the space available in clinical facilities. Admission to Lamar Institute of Technology does not guarantee admission to the Radiology program. A graduate of the program is awarded an Associate of Applied Science degree. Graduates are eligible to apply for admission to take the certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
Students are encouraged to take general education and pre-enrollment courses prior to admission into the program. These courses include all courses other than those designated with an “RADR” preceding the course number. All general education courses must be completed by the end of the first year in the program. A minimum grade of “C” must be earned in all courses required for graduation listed on the degree plan. In addition, students must maintain a 2.0 grade point average while enrolled in the Medical Radiologic Technology Program. Radiology courses must be taken in the order listed in the Degree Plan.
