Imagine a career in imaging. In just 24 months, you can train to become a Radiologic Technologist. In this full-time, adult-only program, you’ll learn everything from patient care to using technology to produce diagnostic medical images. Technical skills are just part of what you’ll take away from this hands-on program. You’ll also learn how to effectively communicate, solve problems and work on a team with other healthcare professionals. Care and compassion are essential elements of this program.

Students will be eligible to take the national certification exam after successfully completing the educational and ethical requirements established by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). This program is the foundation for employment in diagnostic radiography.

Qualified applicants must have completed an associate degree (or more advanced degree) from an institution accredited by an agency that ARRT recognizes. Our program may consider applicants who are within 15 hours of degree completion. Effective January 1, 2024, consideration may be given to applicants participating in the articulation agreement between Northern Oklahoma College and the MTC Radiologic Technology Program who have completed a minimum of 19 credit hours of general education courses at NOC while currently enrolled in NOC’s AAS Degree in Applied Technology – Industry Certifications. Completion of an accredited educational program and degree completion are an eligibility requirement to sit for the ARRT Certification Exam. Other prerequisites may be required for entrance into the program. Additional eligibility requirements will be necessary for admission into clinical training.
