Radiologic Technology

Acceptance into Belmont College Radiology Program is selective and selection will be based on the applicant’s educational and personal qualifications.

 

It is the policy of Belmont College to provide equal admission, educational, and employment opportunities without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, or other protected classifications.

 

Once a student is accepted into the program, it is a 24-month commitment of daytime didactic and clinical education, with limited clinical rotations during afternoon and midnight hours. The program is rigorous and will require the student to adhere to an academic routine that is of priority, organized, and time-managed. The program offers hands-on experience through the use of two energized labs on campus, as well as multiple clinical education settings. The number of students accepted each year is dependent on the number of openings available at the program’s affiliated clinical settings. This number is limited; therefore, the program applicants and acceptance is competitive.

 

Costs:

Please refer to the current Belmont College Catalog and/or Student Handbook for tuition costs and associated fees.

 

Other costs include, but are not limited to, textbooks, background check, drug testing, TB testing, vaccines and titers, physician’s physical, CPR certification, uniforms, national certification exam fee, and state licensure fee. Information on scholarships, loans, and grants may be obtained through the college’s Financial Aid office.

 

 
 

Belmont College Radiology Program Curriculum

The Belmont College Radiology Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).  Upon completion of the program, graduates are eligible to take the Radiography National Certification Exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).  A successful passing score provides national certification, allowing the radiographer to gain radiology employment anywhere in the United States.

 

Academic instruction will be provided by Belmont College faculty. The students will have access to college facilities such as the library, computer lab, and counseling services.

 

During non-classroom hours, students will receive a complete range of supervised clinical experience in radiology departments of local clinical education settings. The student’s proficiency, accuracy, and competency are developed through instruction, participation, and evaluation by departmental personnel.
