Radiology Technology

Published or Revised May 05, 2016

Paris Junior College's Radiology Technology Program prepares students to function effectively in the field of the diagnostic medical radiography.

Radiography is the application of knowledge using a variety of imaging methods in the examination of the body for structural defects and disease processes.

The radiology program is a two-year program leading to an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree (60 credit hours). The program begins in the Spring Semester, and applications are accepted September 1-30. Graduates will be eligible to apply for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Certification Examination.

Special Note to Current and Prospective Students

On April 21, 2016, Paris Junior College was informed of the decision of the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) regarding the continuing status of the Radiology Technology program. The program received a continuing status of PROBATION.

The JRCERT provided the program with specific areas to be addressed in response to this notice, which will be due in August 2016. Program and College staff are confident that the response to be provided will fully address the specific areas, and that the program will receive a continuing status to maintain accreditation during the October 2016 meeting.
