Radiography School

Admission to Program

A student radiographer must be a mature, dependable person who is “people-oriented” and genuinely interested in helping the sick and disabled. The Program selects students whose qualifications indicate the greatest potential for professional and personal development. A maximum of EIGHT students and four alternates are selected each year by the admissions committee. Selection is based on pre-requisite course grades and personal interview. Applications and transcripts will be presented to the admissions committee who will select those whom they wish to interview. You will be notified concerning your status by mid April. A limited number of applicants will be invited for interview.

The committee includes the Medical Advisor, Program Director, Clinical Coordinator, Radiology Manager, a faculty member and the Dean of Program Development, Crafton Hills College.

Applicants who are accepted into the program are required to pass a physical examination that is performed by the San Bernardino County Health and Wellness Center. A drug-screening test is performed in conjunction with the physical examination. The student will be fingerprinted and must pass a criminal background check performed by the County of San Bernardino. Failure to pass the physical and/or the background check may result in disqualification.

Note: Students who complete the program and apply to The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists must supply information to the ARRT regarding any criminal history. Eligibility may be checked prior to admission to the radiologic technology program or to ARRT testing by submitting a “PRE-APPLICATION REVIEW OF ELIGIBILTY.” Further inquiries may be submitted directly to the ARRT at:
