Morgan Community College

RADIOLOGY

The Morgan Community College Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) in Radiologic Technology prepares students for an entry level position as a Radiologic Technologist. Radiologic Technologists are employed in a variety of settings, including hospitals, surgery centers and clinics. The program consists of classroom, laboratory and clinical experiences.

Radiology Admission, Prerequisites & Additional Requirements

Once the prerequisite courses are completed with a minimum of "C" an application to the Radiologic Technology Program can be submitted. (Students enrolled in RTE 101 may also submit an application.) Due to limited clinical space, a competitive process is used to determine admission to the Radiologic Technology Program.

Applications are evaluated and scored with points awarded based on:

  • GPA in prerequisite courses
  • grades in BIO 201, BIO 202, and RTE 101
  • writing skills
  • prior health care work experience
  • residence in the MCC service area

Applications are accepted in the late spring of each year. Students who are not admitted for the following fall will need to re-apply for the next year.

Note: RTE 101 Introduction to Radiography must be taken within one year of application to the program and students must successfully complete the course with a minimum score of 80%.

ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS

ACCUPLACER® score of Reading 80

ACCUPLACER® score of Elementary Algebra (EA) 85 or completion of MAT 099 or higher with a "C" grade or better

Pass American DataBank background check**

See DISQUALIFYING OFFENSES at http://www.MorganCC.edu/docs/disqualifyingoffenses2010.pdf

Pass 10-panel drug screen** Although possession and use of marijuana for certain medical conditions consistent with the requirements of the Colorado Constitution is no longer a crime in the State of Colorado, the possession and use of marijuana remains illegal under federal law. Consistent with federal law, including the Controlled Substances Act and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act, the use and/or possession of marijuana continues to be prohibited for students seeking admission or enrolled in a health program at Morgan Community College. Therefore a student with a drug screening showing positive for use of marijuana is ineligible for admission and/or continuance in program.

Purchase a student clinical badge, insurance and scrubs from MCC Bookstore

Submit proof of current immunizations**

Current certification in American Heart CPR for the Healthcare Provider
