Information about the field of Radiologic Technology is available at www.arrt.org.
LAGCC grants an AAS Degree (Associates in Applied Science) in Radiologic Technology for students who successfully complete the Radiologic Technology Program. Upon graduation from the program, students are eligible to sit for the national certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Additional information about the association can be found online at www.arrt.org. The standards of practice for a Radiologic Technologist are also established by the New York State Division of Professional Licensing, Department of Health (DOH) and the Bureau of Environmental Radiation Protection of New York State.
Current laws generally permit licensing board or agency to deny a license to practice Radiologic Technology if the applicant has been convicted of a felony or other specific crime. Such an individual is strongly advised to file a pre-application with the ARRT and contact the NYSDOH in writing to determine their eligibility for certification and registration.
In Regards to International Student Status, NYSDOH may allow sitting for the Licensed exam but will require the applicant to secure a social security number upon issuing the final licensure.
