To begin coursework, you initially need to be admitted to Missouri State. Before completing 75 credit hours, you must also be admitted to a degree program.
Declaring your major
Stop by the Academic Advisement Center to declare or change your major to radiography.
The Department of Kinesiology, in cooperation with the CoxHealth and Mercy School of Radiologic Technology and other JR Cert accredited programs, offer a baccalaureate degree in Radiography. This program contains professional training that must be from a clinical school that is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology sponsored by the American Medical Association (foreign credentials are not accepted). The curriculum includes both university course work that can be completed in 5 semesters and a 24 month sequence of professional courses. Each student must have at least a 2.00 GPA in both the coursework at Missouri State and in the School of Radiologic Technology at CoxHealth or Mercy. To be a registered radiologic technologist, the student, after having completed the professional block of coursework, must pass a Registry Examination and obtain a letter of good standing from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
A student may pursue this program by completing prerequisite courses at Missouri State and by seeking admission to the School of Radiologic Technology, CoxHealth or Mercy. Application deadline is February 1 of each year. Notifications will be sent to successful applicants and classes start in September (CoxHealth) or July (Mercy). Radiography courses completed at CoxHealth and Mercy School of Radiologic Technology will carry the RAD prefix and be entered directly on the Missouri State transcript and the grades earned in those courses will be calculated into the cumulative Missouri State GPA.
