Program Entrance Requirements

The Aims Radiologic Technology Associate Degree Program Process

This five-semester, two-year radiology associate degree program at Aims follows a specific pathway, with prerequisites and other requirements you’ll need to fulfill before applying. 

During the spring semester before the program begins, you’ll take degree-specific prerequisites in medical terminology and an introduction to radiography. You’ll also take general education courses in subjects including anatomy and physiology, interpersonal communication, writing, math, and human growth and development.

Upon passing the introductory radiography course, you can apply to enter the degree program. If you’re accepted, starting that fall you’ll spend the next five semesters (including one summer term) studying radiology and applying your skills in a series of internships. 

During your final semester, you’ll take a capstone course that trains you for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam to become a certified radiologist. After completing your degree program, take an exam to become certified in radiography.
