The Radiologic Technology Program is part of the Health Sciences Division at Brookdale Community College. Other fields of study in this division include Nursing and Respiratory Therapy.

The Radiologic Technology Program will lead to an Associate Degree in Applied Science and is designed for immediate employment upon graduation. However, many students choose to continue in a bachelor’s degree program at another institution. Some of the schools where BCC graduates have enrolled include Rutger’s University, Monmouth University, Hahnemann University, Thomas Jefferson University, Georgian Court College, Johns Hopkins University, and Seton Hall University.

The Radiologic Technology Program has direct articulation agreements with St. Joseph’s College, ME, for a bachelor’s degree in Radiology Administration and with Rutgers University, NJ for Health Care Administration, and Public Health.

College laboratory and clinical laboratory experiences are integrated into the curriculum so that BCC Radiologic Technology students are prepared at an entry-level in their field. Students have the opportunity to practice skills in the laboratory and then apply these skills to patient care in a hospital setting.

Students enrolling in this program must meet specific admissions requirements in addition to applying to the college. The admissions requirements are outlined in the admissions packet.

Make an appointment with Cathy Goode, Health Science Counselor, to discuss general education coursework and transferability of courses taken at other institutions before registering for any general education courses. You may reach her at cgoode@brookdalecc.edu or make an appointment through advisor trac.

For additional information on the transfer of credits, go to transfer students.

Student Concerns and Complaints


Criminal History Background Checks

Clinical agencies mandate criminal history checks for all individuals engaged in inpatient care, and all students must undergo criminal history background checks. These checks are conducted by an external vendor, and the information is sent to the College and to clinical agencies. Agency personnel will evaluate the information they receive and, in their sole discretion, make the final determination as to each student’s ability to continue to engage in inpatient care in their agency. If a student is denied clinical placement by any clinical agency due to criminal history information, that student will be dropped from the program.
