Overview

To be eligible for the Diagnostic Imaging degree completion program, you must hold active registry from one of the following: the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS), Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI), or equivalent professional imaging registry. The program, which provides the opportunity to complete a baccalaureate degree in diagnostic imaging (BSDI), consists of 120 credits with students receiving 60 credits for holding an active registry. Students entering the program with an Associate’s Degree will typically complete 60 credits to be eligible for graduation; students entering the program with hospital-based diploma credits only may have additional credits to satisfy towards graduation. Prospective students are strongly encouraged to meet with an academic advisor to have their previous credits evaluated. Please contact an academic advisor at (414) 229-2758.The degree-completion program is designed for non-traditional adult students who have already worked several years as a healthcare professional and can be completed 100% online. This program will prepare you to assume a wide range of positions and leadership roles in hospitals and clinics, including quality-assurance manager, healthcare administrator, diagnostic imaging educator, and others that require a bachelor's degree for entry, such as occupational therapist, physical therapist, and physician's assistant. With a bachelor of science in diagnostic imaging degree, you will also be qualified to expand your career into other areas of the medical imaging industry, from product development to sales and marketing.Students may also choose to complete the program via the UW Flexible Option. The Flex Option is especially designed for self-motivated nontraditional students who want their previous schooling, work skills, and prior knowledge to apply toward degrees or certificates. The competency-based and self-paced format of the UW Flexible Option fits the schedules of students who must balance work and family responsibilities with educational goals. Because most Flexible Option competencies and assessments are delivered online, students have the opportunity to learn when and where they choose.
