The online Radiologic Science Completion Program is designed to offer students with an A.S./A.A.S. degree in Radiography the opportunity to obtain a baccalaureate
degree by using their A.S./A.A.S. credit hours.
Our graduates are equipped with entry-level management, group dynamics, and supervisory
skills as they relate to the allied health disciplines. Successful completion of this program will
increase graduates' mobility into leadership positions in their respective professions.
Most four-year universities do not allow a majority of allied health credit hour transfers
from community colleges, but we are not like most universities. ETSU gives A.S./A.A.S.
graduates the opportunity to transfer allied health professional course credit hours from a community college.
We accept up to 51 bridge credit hours for this program. Contact Kay Benincasa to have your transcript evaluated to see how many bridge credits you can receive.
Students seeking admission to the Radiography completion program must meet the following
- College GPA of 2.5 or better on a 4.0 scale on all transferable credit;
- Transcript(s) - proof of graduation from an accredited allied health professional
- Licensed or eligible for professional licensure in the discipline.
