Application Procedure


Admission into the UAA Radiologic Technology program is a two-part process:

  • Admission to the University of Alaska Anchorage as an undergraduate degree-seeking student (associate’s or bachelor’s level) AND
  • Admission to the Radiologic Technology program through a department application process.

The Radiologic Technology program selects a limited number of applicants each year into its full-major program. Admissions into the program is competitive and acceptance into the university as a degree-seeking student does not guarantee selection into the full-major program.
