The Radiography Program has specific admission requirements. Applicants are responsible for ensuring that all requirements are met and all supporting documents are submitted on time. Only complete application files will be reviewed for admission.
Northwestern College (NC) may, at its sole discretion, accept credit for classes taken at an accredited college or university if the grade earned is a C or higher, the class is college-level and credit-bearing, and is equivalent to a course taught at NC in the students' program. Unless permission is received in advance from the vice president of academic affairs or designee, a student may not transfer credits after he/she begins classes at Northwestern College (NC Catalog, 2010-2012).
To complete the program's learning objectives, students must also have technical (non-academic) skills, i.e., physical abilities, to successfully perform radiographic exams and maintain the safety and care of their patients.
Program graduates are educationally eligible to sit for the national certifying exam conducted by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
Exam applicants must also comply with ARRT's rules of ethics. Applicants concerned about a conviction record affecting their eligibility may contact the ARRT before enrolling in the program. Download a pre-application review form from the Ethics Section of ARRT's website at www.arrt.org.
