New Degree Requirement from ARRT Begins January 1, 2015
Beginning January 1, 2015, candidates applying for the primary pathway to certification must have earned an associate or higher degree from an institution that is accredited by a mechanism acceptable to the ARRT. The degree does not need to be in the radiologic sciences. The degree may be awarded before entering or after graduating from the educational program, or be awarded by the program — but must be awarded prior to being granted eligibility to sit for the exam.
