The Radiologic Technology (AAS Technical Studies, Radiologic Technology) program at Pierpont Community and Technical College is a consortial hospital-based program of study with core courses offered at two nearby hospitals, United Hospital Center (UHC) in Bridgeport and the WVU Hospitals (WVUH) in Morgantown, and general education courses offered through Pierpont.
Core courses offered at the hospitals consist of on-site lectures and clinical training. The hospital programs are accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT,www.jrcert.org) and are US DE approved. The JRCERT requires the completion of 15 hours of general education credit with a grade of “C” or above, in addition to the core courses in radiologic technology offered at the hospitals. General education courses may be completed before the student applies to the hospitals for admission to the radiologic technology program or may be taken while the student is involved in the training. General Education courses must include:
General education courses are offered at the main campus, off-site campuses or through web-based instruction. General education courses taken at other institutions may transfer for credit toward both the certificate and associate of applied science degree.
Students seeking admission to UHC and WVUH Radiologic Technology Programs must complete a Radiologic Technology Program Application at Pierpont and pay one $20 application fee. The common application enables the student to apply for admission to one or both programs. The application and required transcripts should be forwarded to Enrollment Services at Pierpont by January 31 of the year in which the students hopes to gain admission. Pierpont representatives will forward admission documents to UHC and WVUH for evaluation and student selection.
Fifteen students are selected for admission to each program per year. The admission process for both programs is highly competitive and based upon an objective ranking system. Applicants are strongly encouraged to complete high school or college level courses in Algebra, Geometry, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Human Anatomy and Physiology. ACT or SAT scores are also required for most applicants.
Applicants may be selected for interviews which are conducted in March. Student selection is completed and notification of standing provided in early April by UHC and WVUH.
