Introduction

The Radiography cooperative program between JFK Muhlenberg Snyder School of Radiography and Union County College offers the advantage of a hospital-based radiography program coupled with college-based academic courses.

The degree earned (Diploma in Radiography and an Associate in Science) enables graduates to transfer credits toward a bachelor's degree or a radiologic technology speciality if desired.

Clinical competency is an integral component of the program; however, before students work with patients, they must complete several simulated laboratory sessions that correspond directly to classroom lessons. Clinical rotations are conducted at JFK Medical Center in Edison, NJ, and other hospitals and several satellite facilities in New Jersey.

The Radiography Program:

Day/Full Time – Six semesters of professional courses (two years)

Requires High School Diploma or GED/Adult Diploma

Total of 80 Credits (39 General Education credits/41 Radiography credits) for Advanced Standing

Diploma in Radiography from JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools and an AS Degree from Union County College awarded upon graduation

Advanced Standing/Credits evaluated up to 36 transfer credits for comparable course credit with a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher is required.
