Radiologic Technology

Western Wyoming Community College and Weber State University have entered into an articulation agreement which allows students interested in pursuing a degree in Radiologic Technology to take their prerequisite courses at Western and then complete the radiology courses through Weber. The Associate of Science degree with an emphasis in Pre-Radiology will fulfill the prerequisite requirements for the Radiologic Technology program at Weber. Students should apply to Weber and their Radiology program in the fall of their sophomore year. 

Weber’s outreach program allows accepted students who are site bound an opportunity to complete an Associate of Applied Science in Radiologic Technology. These students may continue to live in their own community and work on their degree. Students accepted to Weber’s program are required to travel to Utah for course work and to various hospitals for clinical instruction once a month.
