The two-year program in radiologic technology affords the individual knowledge and ability in the performance of medical imaging procedures. Students participate in structured clinical settings involving direct patient contact which encompasses varied imaging modalities.

The program has restricted enrollment and accepts one class per year with classes beginning in May. Students must obtain a grade of “C,” or better, in each radiologic technology course, in algebra and human anatomy and physiology/laboratory, as well as all required general education courses. On successful completion of the associate degree program in radiologic technology, the graduate is eligible to apply for admission to the certification examination in radiography administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Successful completion of the ARRT examination provides certification for the graduate to practice as a registered radiographer. All support courses must be completed prior to or concurrent with the curriculum course sequence as listed in the catalog. Once accepted into the program all Radiologic Technology (RADT) coursework must be completed within a three (3) year period.

Registered technologists who have graduated from certificate programs may obtain an associate of science degree by completing 27 semester hours of general education courses as required by the curriculum. The College grants 42 semester hours of block credit based upon post certification.

The curriculum in radiologic technology is offered in Bluefield on the main campus and some courses may be offered in Beckley at the Beckley Center located in Harper Industrial Park and/or the Higher Education Center. The radiologic technology courses at the Beckley Center are taught by Bluefield State College radiologic technology faculty. Students may elect to take the non-radiologic technology courses at Bluefield State College or other area colleges. Courses taken at other colleges must have prior approval. These courses must be equivalent to the program courses as judged by Bluefield State College (see transfer credit policy). The radiography program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 2850 Chicago, IL 60606-3182;(312)704-5300) and approved by the West Virginia Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy Board of Examiners (P.O. Box 638 1715 Flat Top Road Cool Ridge, WV 25825; 304-787-4398).

Meeting minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology program.

Eligibility requirements for admission to the associate degree program include:                                                                                                           

  1. Meet general admission requirements. 
  2. Complete the TEAS V Admission test with a proficient or higher overall score. Completion of TEAS V does not meet all requirements for admissions to the program.

  6. Have completed with a “C,” or better in one unit of high school algebra, one unit of high school biology, one unit of high school chemistry and/or physics. (An ACT score of 19 in mathematics will substitute for the algebra course).


    Be enrolled at Bluefield State College or another accredited institution of higher learning prior to application and have completed a minimum of 12 credit hours,** achieving a 2.5 or better grade point average. A “C” grade or better is required in each of the following: one mathematics course, one biology course and one introductory chemistry and/or physics course. (copies of high school transcripts of any prior college work, and ACT/SAT scores are required). **Developmental or Remedial courses will not be considered.
