In order to meet ARRT certification requirement, you may complete the pre-application review process with the ARRT prior to program enrollment to avoid delays and uncertainty regarding certification eligibility if you have been:

  • any alcohol and/or drug violations;
  • had any license, registration, or certification denied, revoked, suspended, placed on probation, or subjected to discipline by a regulatory authority or certification board (other than ARRT);
  • suspended, dismissed, or expelled from an educational program that you attended.

The pre-application review form is downloadable from the Ethics section ARRT's website at www.arrt.org or by calling ARRT at 651-686-0048, ext. 8580. 

In the event that a student or graduate of the Radiologic Technology Program is concerned about ARRT eligibility, it is the sole responsibility of the student or graduate to certify eligibility with the ARRT.
