Radiologic Science, A.S. to B.S.

This is a suggested course plan. It is highly recommended that you meet regularly with your academic advisor to determine your course selection and progress toward graduation.

Students who transfer to UNC under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) have all lower-level General Education requirements completed, but must complete these requirements through transfer or UNC coursework: Global Language, Research and Discovery, Lifetime Fitness, Communication Beyond Carolina, Campus Life Experience, and, where applicable, Supplemental General Education. Students who do not transfer in under the CAA should work closely with their advisor to determine which requirements apply to them for the IDEAs in Action General Education curriculum.

This catalog also includes a complete list of requirements for the Radiologic Science B.S. degree. Admission to the program is required. Students are encouraged to begin the application process early in the fall semester preceding the year of intended enrollment. The program begins in Summer Session II each year.

Prerequisite for the major.


STOR 151 or STOR 155 is a recommended but not required prerequisite for the major.


All NC Community College Language courses numbered 211 are approved to transfer to UNC–Chapel Hill as a course that completes the GLBL-LANG IDEAs in Action requirement.


BIO 168 and BIO 169 taken together are awarded BIOL 252, BIOL 252L, BIOL 253, and BIOL 253L at UNC. Either course taken alone would be awarded BIOL 290 and BIOL 290L.

BIOL 252 and BIOL 252L are prerequisites for the major.
