Radiologic Technology

Bachelor of Science with a Major in Radiologic Technology (124-126 cr.)

There are two options under the Bachelor of Science degree in Radiologic Technology. Option I is the Radiologic Technology Option while Option II is the Diagnostic Sonography Option. The primary difference is in the nature of the clinical experience (RAD 405). Once students have completed all of the necessary on-campus coursework they then enroll for clinical training (18 to 24 months) at an accredited school of radiologic technology or diagnostic sonography with which Minot State has an agreement. These schools are separate from the University, and admission to them is competitive. Admission to clinical training is the sole prerogative of the individual hospital-based clinical program. Admission to Minot State University does not guarantee acceptance into clinical training. Students pursuing the BS degree must enroll in RAD 405 as a full-time students at Minot State during the clinical training and pay full tuition and fees each semester. Students who require financial aid from Minot State University during the summer months of clinical training are allowed to register as full-time students. Students receive a minimum of 52 semester credits for clinical training.

RAD 405 Radiologic Technology Clinical carries the prerequisite of acceptance into the Radiologic Technology program. Students pursuing this program would, upon successful completion of the program (both the on-campus portion and the clinical portion), be granted a BS degree from Minot State. They would also be eligible to take the appropriate certification exam to become certified as a registered radiologic technologist/radiographer or diagnostic sonographer. MSU maintains, where feasible, tuition agreements with radiologic technology schools or diagnostic sonography schools for students pursuing the BS degree.

Transfer students are required to meet all of the MSU residency requirements, the General Education requirements, and to take a minimum of 12 credits of the required course work for the major at MSU. Credits from clinical study cannot be used to meet any of these requirements. No student who is already a registered radiologic technologist/radiographer may be accepted into RAD 405 Radiologic Technology Clinical.
