Associate of Science Degree in Radiologic Technology

The first step towards a successful career is the A.S. degree in Radiologic Technology, a program that begins during the summer semester once you are accepted into the program.  The number of students admitted into this program is restricted by the availability of clinical experiences at affiliated clinical education centers located throughout Kansas and Colorado. If you wish to be considered for selection, you must submit your completed application materials by January 1. After completing this program, you will be eligible for registration by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
