Associate in Science Degree

The Radiologic Technology Program prepares students for entry level employment as radiologic technologists in hospitals and medical offices. It is offered as an academic program by Middlesex Community College in collaboration with Middlesex Hospital.  General education courses are held at the College, while those courses requiring specialized laboratories, equipment, and hands-on practical experience are held at Middlesex Healthcare system facilities.  The curriculum covers a 22-month period, including a 5 month internship (Jan-May).

Enrollment in the program is restricted by clinical facility capacity as per JRCERT accreditation guidelines.

Applicants must first meet the general college admissions procedures (see college catalog). Once these requirements are met, the applicant must provide the college with the following information by March 27 of the year in which admission is sought:  three completed Applicant/Information Reference Forms, a one-page biography stating goals/reasons for program entry, and present the Observation/Documentation Form demonstrating completion of a two hour program observation at an imaging department within a hospital facility. In addition, college applicants need a 2.7 GPA for all college work. A grade of C+ or better taken within the past five years is required in Anatomy & Physiology I & II. Final admission procedures for candidate selection involves an interview with an interview committee and a personal background check, which is a hospital requirement to do clinical training at Middlesex Health Care System facilities. Admission to the college does NOT GUARANTEE admission to the radiology technology program.

The Radiologic Technology Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), 20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60606-3182. http://www.jrcert.org/

The program of study reflects a full-time curriculum plan that matriculated students enrolled in the radiologic technology program are required to complete before graduation. Many students complete most of the general education courses before applying to the program. Non-radiology courses must be taken no later than the semester listed in the plan of study but may be taken earlier; radiology courses must be taken in the stated sequence. RAD* courses scheduled for the summer session are mandatory courses toward the completion of the radiologic technology professional curriculum. Students must earn a “C” or higher in all RAD* designated and program courses with the exception of BIO*211 and BIO*212 which is a C+ or higher.  Students who fail to complete required courses or meet the minimum grade requirement may be dismissed from the program. There may be pre-requisite courses that must be successfully completed prior to taking listed courses. It is the responsibility of the students to know and meet all requirements for graduation.
