  1. Complete RT 100 – Radiography and Health Care (Fall or Spring semester); grade of “C” or better.
  2. Attend an RT Orientation meeting the semester prior to entry (date and time will be announced to the students who are scheduled to begin);
  3. Complete the SBCC physical examination on SBCC form including immunizations;
  4. Obtain a CPR card, which must be kept current throughout the program;
  5. Complete a background check (information and forms given at orientation meeting), and,
  6. Pay a one-time Radiation Film Badge fee at registration

It is highly recommended to complete a Medical Terminology course before starting the program.  This is a graduation requirement but beneficial to the student to have it completed before starting the program.

It is highly recommended to complete all General Education requirements before starting the program.  The program is rigorous and does not allow much time to take additional courses.  You will not be able to graduate and sit for the board exam without completing the graduation (General Education) requirements.

PROGRAM COMPLETION
A passing grade in all general education courses and a grade of “C” or better in all courses for the major is required to receive an Associate Degree in Radiography from SBCC.
