The deadline to apply for Kellogg Community College’s 2020-21 Radiography Program cohort is May 20.

KCC’s Radiography Program is a two-year, full-time program that leads successful graduates to an Associate in Applied Science degree in Radiography and eligibility to take the national certification examination of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

Radiographers (also called radiologic technologists) are professionals specially trained to administer X-rays, making digital images of internal bones, organs and tissues that can help in the diagnosis of various health-related issues.

KCC’s program – which is fully accredited and approved by the Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Radiologic Technology – consists of four academic semesters and two summer sessions, all of which include extensive clinical experience in addition to online and traditional classroom lectures. Additionally, KCC’s on-campus Radiography Lab utilizes the latest radiography technology in the industry, providing students with a simulated real-world environment in which to practice skills.

KCC’s Radiography Program:

  • Boasts an 87 percent credentialing exam pass rate for students who have taken the ARRT exam at some point in the past five years
  • Produced a 100 percent job-placement rate among 2016-18 program graduates who responded to the College’s Radiography Grad Survey

Admission to KCC’s Radiography Program is competitive, and just 20 students are admitted to the program during a limited open-application period each year.

Program Admissions Requirements

KCC Radiography Program applicants must meet all program admission requirements listed in the RADI Admissions Packet on KCC’s website at www.kellogg.edu/radiography-admissions before applying to the program.

KCC recognizes that some students who had anticipated meeting the program’s prerequisite course requirements this spring may have experienced challenges doing so due to the impacts of COVID-19. Program applicants registered for a required Spring 2020 course who receive a grade of Incomplete “I” or whose class was canceled because of the pandemic may submit a Request for Consideration (RFC) form to apply to the Radiography Program now.

The RFC process is designed for students who experience an extenuating circumstance that contributed to their inability to meet admission requirements. To begin this process, students may request the RFC form by contacting KCC’s Academic Advising office at advising@kellogg.edu or the Selective Admissions office at seladm@kellogg.edu. The RFC must also be submitted May 20.

It is important to note that students submitting an RFC form due to COVID-19 impacts must complete the incomplete course during the Summer 2020 semester.
