ARRT Eligibility

The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists requires all examinees to have a minimum of an associate’s degree to sit for the board registry. More information regarding this can be attained by talking to the program director (319-272-7126).

The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists requires all examinees to disclose any prior felony or misdemeanor conviction. If this situation applies to you, it is suggested that you contact the ARRT directly at (651) 687-0048 to discuss your particular situation. This process is to prevent the student from having completed the two year program and then being ineligible to take the ARRT certification exam.
