Radiological Sciences

Associate of Science in Radiography


Prior to beginning professional course work, all students must complete the program's math and English requirement with a C (2.0) or better. Students may earn up to 6 hours of Indiana University credit by correspondence toward fulfilling the requirements for the associate degree. Students are encouraged to seek advising prior to enrolling in course work. The faculty retain the right to determine acceptability of course work taken by nontraditional methods outside of Indiana University to meet degree requirements.

Total Number of Prerequisite Credit Hours

To be eligible for admission, applicants should have completed high school courses in algebra, geometry, biology, and English. In addition, physics, chemistry, and computer science are recommended. Prior to beginning professional course work, all students must complete the program's math and English requirement with a C (2.0) or higher.

Professional Program

Courses in the professional program are sequential and, therefore, must be taken in the order specified by the program faculty.


The program faculty will recommend to the university graduating students with superior academic performance for degrees awarded with distinction. Also, the program may recognize students with outstanding academic and clinical achievement during their professional program at the time of graduation.


For information on scholarships and grants, students should contact the Financial Aid Office. Some hospitals offer financial assistance for students pursuing radiography. Contact the program faculty for further information.

Graduation Requirements

Satisfactory completion of 76/77 credit hours to include 23/24 credit hours of prerequisite and general education courses and 52 credit hours of professional courses. All course work must be completed in compliance with the program's and school's academic and professional policies. Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to take the examination of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (AART) (
