Radiologic Technology FAQs

Rad Tech logo
This page contains frequently asked questions about the Radiology Technology Program.

What is my first step?
The first step is to attend an information session. Call 410-777-7318 for information session dates and time or view our online  information session

What is an RT (R)?
Radiologic Technologists or radiographers operate X-ray equipment to produce radiographic images for diagnosis of diseases.

How long is the program?
Students attending full time can complete all general education and radiologic technology curriculum requirements in three years.

Can I attend the Radiologic Technology program on a part-time basis or in the evening?
No, the Radiology Technology program is a full-time 2-year program with daytime classes, laboratory, and clinical experiences.

Can I transfer courses from other colleges/universities?
Prerequisites and general education courses with a grade of C or better are transferable provided the course is consistent with one of our offerings. Students who have successfully completed radiologic technology courses with a grade of C or better within the past year in a JRCERT accredited radiologic technology program may transfer to the second (fall) or third (spring) term of the Rad Tech course sequence. Transfer of credits from another radiologic technology program cannot be assured and must be approved by the AACC program department chair.

How can I advance in the field after I receive my RT (R)?
Radiological technologists are eligible to sit for advanced imaging modality exams (computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, mammography and interventional procedures) one year after their initial certification. We offer continuing education courses, workshops and seminars to prepare for these advanced exams.
