Degree Plan Notes
  • To count towards graduation credit hours, the minimum grade point average must be 2.50 and each course must be completed with a grade of “C” or better (does not include “C-”). Courses may be taken in a different order with approval from the student’s advisor.

  • This is not an entry-level program. Eligible participants are individuals who have completed a certified Radiography program and hold certification as Radiologic Technologist by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologies (ARRT) (certified radiographers, nuclear medicine technologist, radiation therapists, magnetic resonance imaging technologists and sonographers). Students enrolled in an entry-level certificate program at an outside institution should seek advisement as to when to start the BSRS program. Please contact the Radiologic Sciences Program for advisement.
