Majors Offered

Radiologic Science Administration

The Associate of Science degree with a major in Radiologic Science Administration (AS/RSA) will provide a degree completion option for individuals pursuing certification in radiologic technology. Students may enroll in the program while working through an approved Radiologic Technologist certificate program, but may not complete the degree until the certificate program has been completed and the transcripts verified.

The AS/RSA degree totals 66 semester-hour credits. Up to 30 of those credits can transfer in from your technical training alone. For more information on how transfer credit is applied to this program, contact an online admissions counselor.
