The provided table helps in determining if this program fulfills the educational requirements for licensure in the specific states, provinces, or territories listed. In the "Does This Program Meet State Educational Requirements?" column, each state's status is indicated as either “Meets State Educational Requirements,” “Does Not Meet State Educational Requirements,” or "Does Not License.”  Each entry in the table is tailored to the particular state corresponding to that row.

It is essential to understand that meeting the program's educational criteria might not be the sole requirement for licensure. Additional prerequisites might include being listed on a registry, passing background checks, or satisfying certain physical standards. Therefore, students should consult the relevant agency to ascertain the full spectrum of requirements beyond educational accomplishments.

More than 75% of states have licensing laws covering the practice of radiologic technology. In those states, you must obtain a state license before you can work as a radiologic technologist. In addition, many states use ARRT exam scores and/or credentials when making licensing decisions. Graduates of Johnston Community College’s Computed Tomography (CT) Program meet the educational requirements to take the CT certification examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). The CT certification examination is a national credentialing examination. Listed below is the link to each state’s information regarding licensure as verified by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists Some states still require their state exam for reciprocity, so it is suggested a student check with the state in question before taking the program.
