The Radiography Technology program prepares students to become a radiography technologist and member of a healthcare team. The program integrates knowledge from the biological sciences, social sciences, and math with the theory and practice of radiography technology to prepare students as entry-level technologists. Upon successful completion of this program students will graduate with an associate of applied science degree and be eligible to become certified by taking the registry examination of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). The Radiography Technology associate of applied science degree program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). Inquiries can be made by contacting JRCERT at 20 North Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60606-3182 or (312) 704-5300 or

Contact the Health Professions Division at (208) 769-3373 for further information.
