Frequently Asked Questions

Where are classes held?
Classes are held on the Pemberton campus. The majority of the classes are scheduled in the Parker building.  Clinical experiences are held at clinical sites listed above.

When are classes held?
The Radiography classes are held in the day time.  Support courses are held at various times.  Each semester the schedule is determined by the offering of the support courses and the number of clinical days.  This could range from one day a week to every day of the week depending on the semester.

Can this be done on a part-time basis?
If all the support courses are taken prior to the start of the Radiograph Program the academic commitment is less than if Radiography and support course are taken simultaneously.  Please be aware that the radiography courses must be taken consecutively, without a semester lapse.

Can this program be done in the evenings?
Because of the nature of the profession, this program is not offered in the evening.  Clinical days are scheduled during the day shift when there is a variety of exams for experience.  Off hour rotations can be experienced during the second year of the program on a voluntary basis.

Can I keep my full time job?
It has been attempted in the past to work a full time job and be successful in the program; all have failed either at keeping the job or in the program. We suggest between 16 and 20 is what can be worked and still be successful in the program. Keep in mind that for every hour of class you should be putting in 3 hours of additional study time.

Upon completion of the program will assistance be given in finding employment?
Throughout the program, the students participate in activities that will enhance their opportunity for employment. The students attend a resume writing seminar. The student have to submit a resume for a grade. The students attend an interviewing seminar. The most important activity is participating in the clinical education which is scheduled at the clinical sites which are all potential employers of the graduates.

Upon graduation with an AAS degree, how is that viewed by employers?
A student that graduates with an AAS degree is not viewed significantly differently than a certificate or a BS degree. What is important is that a graduated passes the ARRT exam and is licensed by the State of NJ. The value with having a degree is that it the graduate may be more promotable.

What can I expect as a salary?
Salaries vary based on who you are employed by; a hospital, an imaging center, a physicians office, a mobile company. Salaries also vary if you are educated in other areas; CT, MRI, special procedures, mammography. Salaries also vary depending on where you are employed; a large city, Burlington County, rural area.
