Program Student Learning Outcomes

This program prepares students to work as radiologic technologists with knowledge in the general education, the radiologic technology, and the curriculum content areas identified by the American Society of Radiologic Technology (ASRT). At the completion of this program, students will be able to demonstrate:

  1. Entry-level knowledge and skills for employment as a radiologic technologist.
  2. Proficiency in the performance of radiographic procedures.
  3. Professional attitude and proper ethical behavior in clinical settings.

Admissions Requirements

The admittance process is competitive due to a limited number of positions available for each class.  Completion of the admission requirements does not guarantee selection into the Radiologic Technology full-major program.  Some fully qualified applicants may not be accepted.  For full application instructions please review the information on the Application Procedure webpage.

Academic Advising

Students are strongly encouraged to meet with a dental hygiene program academic advisor each semester to review academic progress and plan future courses and application to the full-major program.

Distance Delivered Site Information

The Radiologic Technology Program distance delivers their program to select Alaska communities including Fairbanks, Juneau, Ketchikan, Bethel, and Kenai.  The Radiologic Technology Program accepts students in Anchorage and Fairbanks every year. Students are accepted to other sites subject to availability. Students who apply to a distance site must follow the same admissions process as those students applying to the Anchorage campus, including being admitted to the University of Alaska Anchorage as a degree-seeking student.  Students who are accepted at a distance site attend classes on UA campuses in those communities through video conferencing.  Students are also required to attend a 3-4 week clinical session in Anchorage during the summer after their first year.
