Radiologic Technician

Please read the following: SUNY Adirondack does not offer any radiologic technology specific coursework.

Students wishing to declare this major must either be currently enrolled in or have completed a radiology certificate program from an external agency.  Students not meeting these criteria shall declare the liberal arts math science degree. This program involves transfer credit from an accredited certificate program in radiologic technology.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Radiologic Technician program is designed to provide certified radiographers a path to advance in their field. The college will equate certification from a school of radiography to one year of transfer credit (30 credits), applicable in this program only. SUNY Adirondack will provide 35 credit hours of general education course work leading to an AS degree.
