Radiologic Technology Degree (RAD.AAS)

Admission to the College does not guarantee acceptance to the Radiologic Technology Program. Students admitted to the program must maintain a minimum grade of “C” or better in all of the general education and professional courses.

Prior to enrolling in the Radiologic Technology Program, students are advised to review the applicable licensure procedures and requirements and state laws of the profession to ensure that they are eligible to receive a license following completion of the Radiologic Technology Program at South Suburban College. Eligibility for licensure may be limited by the results of a criminal background investigation.

Students must finish all prerequisite courses by December prior to the summer semester of the year you are seeking admission.
