The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) requirements

A previous criminal conviction may eliminate a student from sitting for the certification examination. A previous criminal record includes, but may not be restricted to misdemeanor drug possession charges, DUI, felony convictions, military court martia and proceedings where a plea of nolo contender was entered. Individuals may contact the ARRT at (615) 687-0048 privately for clarification of their eligibility status. ARRT. certification is required to obtain a radiographer’s license in Connecticut and many other states.

Additionally, a clinical affiliate may/will perform a criminal background check prior to attending assignments in their facility. Any student that is not allowed to attend a clinical assignment as a result of a criminal background check is no longer eligible for admission into the Radiologic Technology Program.
