Program Requirements

The program will consist of 3 semesters starting in the Summer semester of each year.  The semesters will incorporate both clinical and didactic training.  The program is a hybrid format, involving online coursework, clinical hours, and Face-to-Face (F2F) class sessions in the Glendale/Phoenix area 1x per month each semester.  Students will be responsible for completing required coursework and examinations.  Students are required to attend designated class sessions for each semester. 

Clinical education is required at 24 hours per week.  These are non-paid, dedicated student clinical hours.  For the ARRT Degree Completion program, it is required that a rotation to a Hospital is available to meet requirements for OR, Fluoro, and trauma.  If you are already working at a site that will allow you to complete clinicals there, please include a written letter with your application.
