Program Extension Policy

The RADSC Program Extension Policy provides a student the opportunity to pursue an Associate Degree in Radiological Sciences at a more leisurely pace than the 28 months stated curriculum.

Given the University's commitment to non-traditional students, a potential RADSC student can register for the 25 credits of academic courses during evenings or on a day basis. At the completion of the stated academic courses, the student may apply for transfer into the RADSC Program. Since the RADSC Program schedule is integrated with the academic courses and clinical classes, the student who completed the academic courses would be attending clinical classes on alternating days in Semesters: I, II, IV, V and four days a week in Semesters: III, VI, VII. This method permits the student to continue his/her education at his/her own speed. 2.5 years are then needed to complete the clinical component of the program.

It is advised that a student wishing to extend the time frame to complete the program complete the academic courses first thereby completing the clinical course material in sequential semesters and just prior to taking the registry examination.

The Program Extension Policy can function for the student's benefit if all clinical course credits have been successfully completed and additional semesters are required to complete outstanding academic courses. Upon successful completion of the stated 72 credits with a 2.0 grade point average the student is awarded an Associate Degree in Radiological Sciences (2RSCA).
