Certification and Registration
Certification and registration for the radiologic technology profession is provided by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). The ARRT is the only national certifying agency recognized by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the American Medical Association (AMA).
Upon graduation from the Radiologic Technology program at the University of Saint Francis, you will be eligible to take the national AART examination. To sit for the exam, you must meet the requirements of good moral character. A conviction of a misdemeanor or felony may indicate a lack of good moral character for the ARRT’s purposes. If you have been convicted, pre-application review procedures are in place to help you determine your application status.
You will complete your application during the spring semester, prior to the program completion date, in RAD 278 Clinical Education V. Your application will be signed if you:
- Have met all requirements of the program to date and are on track for graduation.
- Have signed an acknowledgment indicating that all information provided on the application form is accurate and correct.
Copies of signed application forms will be maintained in your permanent student file. Final completion dates will be submitted upon graduation, at the end of the summer session. If you do not complete the Radiologic Technology program, your scores will not be released from the AART.
