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, then complete the radiology courses through Weber. The Associate of Science degree with an emphasis in Pre-Radiology will fulfill the prerequisite requirements and increase a student's chances of getting accepted into the competitive program in Radiologic Technology 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. Wyoming residents are charged in-state-tuition, however Hathaway Scholarship funding cannot be used at Weber even if the student is at a Wyoming outreach location. 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.
Radiologic Technology is an applied skill and science pertaining to the various types of ionizing radiation used in both the diagnostic and therapy fields. A Technologist’s duties generally include making x-ray exposures, aiding the radiologist during fluoroscopy, processing films, assisting in special procedures, as well as aiding in patient care and education.
