Graduates of the Radiologic Technology Program are prepared to meet the state education requirements for a Radiologic Technology license in the state of Connecticut.
The NVCC Radiologic Technology Program, has not determined if the associate degree Radiologic Technology Program meets the state education requirements in any other state, any U.S. Territory, or the District of Columbia. Applicants should investigate licensure requirements prior to accepting an offer of admission to any CT Radiologic Technology program.
The licensure boards in each state are responsible for establishing the requirements for licensure/certification for their state. Students who intend to seek licensure in any state other than Connecticut need to consult with the state professional licensing board. The state professional licensing boards make the decision on whether an individual is eligible for licensure based on the rules and regulations in place at the time the individual submits their application for licensure.
