Associate of Applied Science, Radiologic Technology

Overview

The UAA Radiologic Technology Program is a 62-credit Associate of Applied Science degree program.  The program takes approximately three years of full-time enrollment to complete-- one year of prerequisite courses and two years of radiologic technology courses.  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 How and When to Apply webpage.

For full information about our degree program and student learning outcomes, please review the UAA Catalog.  

Distance Delivered Site Information

The Radiologic Technology Program distance delivers their program to select Alaska communities.  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 may also be required to attend a 3-4 week clinical session in Anchorage during the summer after their first year.

Approved distance sites include Fairbanks, Juneau, Sitka, 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.
