Degree Requirements

The AnMed Radiologic Technology Program is a certificate program and does not award a degree. A minimum of an associate’s degree is required for the graduate to be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist’s examination which certifies the individual as a “Registered Radiologic Technologist”. Students that have already earned an associate’s degree or higher are eligible to apply. For students who have not earned a degree and prefer learning in a hospital-based, medical center environment, the program has partnered with Greenville Technical College, Anderson University and Penn West of Pennsylvania to enable our radiography program students to obtain a degree in addition to a certificate of completion from our hospital based program.

Applicants who wish to obtain an associate degree from Greenville Technical College will need to document completion of Phase I and a minimum of 22 credit hours in Phase 1 before entering the AnMed Radiologic Technology Program. General education classes require a grade of “C” or better and a cumulative technical GPA of 2.5 or higher. Upon completing the AnMed program and meeting ARRT certification exam requirements, students will receive an Associate of Science degree in Radiologic Technology from Greenville Technical College. Information regarding the required credit hour courses is available from Greenville Technical College.

Applicants who wish to obtain a bachelor’s degree from Anderson University must meet all requirements of Anderson University, document completion of the general education courses identified by Anderson University with a grade of “C” or better and receive a formal recommendation by the University Admissions Coordinator. Upon completion of the AnMed Program and meeting the ARRT certification exam requirements, graduates will receive a Bachelor of Science in Health Science with a concentration in Medical Imaging. Additional information regarding this affiliation is available from Anderson University.

The AnMed Radiography Program is also affiliated with Penn West of Pennsylvania. Penn West students must meet all requirements of Penn West and receive either a conditional or full recommendation in order to qualify for admission to our program. Upon completing the AnMed Program and meeting the ARRT certification exam requirements, students will receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Imaging Sciences. 

The AnMed Radiologic Technology Program will evaluate prior credit/clock hours earned from another institution but does not guarantee acceptance of transfer credits or that the program length will be shortened.

How to Apply

To be accepted into the Radiologic Technology Program, prospective students must comply with degree requirements. The application deadline is February 28th, 2025.  

Once your application has been received, you’ll be required to attend a two-hour information session at AnMed Medical Center. Prospective students then participate in an interview with the program director and clinical coordinator, and a morning of observation in the radiology department. Before the clinical observation, prospective students must sign a COVID-19 waiver and release of liability form, indemnification agreement, confidentiality statement, and provide documentation of having received a flu vaccination within the current flu season and a 2-step TB test within the past three months.

At the end of the observation period, you’ll be asked to complete a math assessment and writing sample. We’ll also mail forms to your personal references, which should be returned before the selection process begins. Each applicant also receives a copy of the student handbook and must sign an acknowledgment agreeing to abide by all program rules. 

An Admissions Committee selects the students after all admission requirements have been met. Each applicant’s academic and personal attributes are evaluated using a point system. Students are accepted on the basis of academic records, character and a general aptitude for the field of Radiologic Technology. Completed application date is also considered. 

Candidates are notified of the committee's decision by mail and electronically no later than May 1. Selection is made without regard to race, religion, age, gender or national origin.

Students must complete a health screening at AnMed Employee Health before they are accepted into the program. A drug screening is included as a part of this health screening. A criminal background check is also required. Any applicant who fails or refuses to complete the required screenings will not be considered for acceptance.

The technical standards for admission and job duties associated with this profession require students be able to perform a full range of body motions including lifting and moving patients, manual dexterity, hand-eye coordination for maneuvering radiographic equipment, as well as prolonged sitting/standing. Technical standards are evaluated during the health screening and clinical observation process.

Our program’s class size is limited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology. AnMed does not accept transfer students, and advanced placement is not an option due to curriculum sequence and design.
