Radiography Collaborative Program

Curriculum

A.A.S. Degree in Health Sciences 

Dr. Christina Mortellaro, Advisor

Through this collaborative program between Saint Peter’s University and the Englewood Hospital School of Radiography, students earn a Degree of Associate of Applied Science in Health Sciences (AAS) from Saint Peter’s University. This degree begins with one year (32 credits or at least 18 credits for transfer students) of study at Saint Peter’s University followed by two years of study, including summers, at Englewood Hospital School of Radiography. Students are awarded the AAS degree from Saint Peter’s University upon documented evidence of successfully completing the Englewood Hospital School of Radiography program, but prior to taking the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam. The successful completion of this program does not confer eligibility for advanced certification or licensure.

Students in this program are admitted to Saint Peter’s University into the Health Sciences, Radiography Track. Students apply for Conditional Admit Status to the Englewood Hospital School of Radiography during their second semester at Saint Peter’s, and the granting of Conditional Admit Status is at the sole discretion of School of Radiography at Englewood Hospital. Students must meet the admission requirements of Englewood Hospital School of Radiography, be recommended by Saint Peter’s Health Professions Advisory Committee, successfully complete an interview at Englewood Hospital School of Radiography, and receive a passing grade of C or higher in the following courses taken during the fall semester at Saint Peter’s University: BI-171 and BI-172, PS-151, MA-115, either PL-130 or TH-110, CS-150, an approved EL course, SO-121, and a Composition sequence based on placement: CM-104 or CM-120.

Once students with Conditional Admit Status successfully complete the required spring semester courses with a grade of C or higher in any of the remaining courses listed above, they may apply for Admit Status through the Admissions Office of Englewood Hospital School of Radiography. Students must satisfy all of the admission requirements of the School of Radiography, including volunteer service and the required level of performance on an entrance examination. The granting of admission is at the sole discretion of Englewood Hospital  School of Radiography.

For more detailed information about the admission requirements, students should consult the Program Advisor. Students entering Saint Peter’s University in the Health Sciences, Radiography Track should consult the Program Advisor early and often to make sure they take the required courses in the correct sequence, meet all of Saint Peter’s requirements, and understand the requirements of Englewood Hospital School of Radiography.

Students who are not granted Conditional Admit Status by Englewood Hospital School of Radiography cannot complete the A.A.S. Degree in Health Sciences.  These students may, however, switch to the B.S. degree in Health Sciences or one of the other Bachelor's degree options offered by a traditional day program, or to one of the Associate's degree options offered by the School of Professional and Continuing Studies.  Depending on the option chosen, it may take longer than two years to complete an Associate's degree or longer than four years to complete a Bachelor's degree.
