The Radiography curriculum prepares the graduate to be a radiographer, a skilled health care professional who uses radiation to produce images of the human body.
Course work includes clinical rotations to area health care facilities, radiographic exposure, image processing, radiographic procedures, physics, pathology, patient care and management, radiation protection, quality assurance, anatomy and physiology, and radiobiology.
Graduates of accredited programs are eligible to apply to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists’ national examination for certification and registration as medical radiographers.
Graduates maybe employed in hospitals, clinics, physicians’ offices, medical laboratories, government agencies, and industry.Students will be required to attend courses on campus to complete this program.

NOTE: Currently enrolled LCC students skip to step 5. Or if you are currently not attending LCC and you are applying to a second Health Sciences Program and have already completed steps 1–4, skip to step 5.
STEP 1 – Application for General College Admission:
Complete an online LCC Application for Admission. Select Radiography A10300RA as your major. Acceptance into a Pre–Health Sciences Program does not guarantee acceptance into the Health Sciences Program.
STEP 2 – Transcripts:
Submit an official transcript from your high school or provide a copy of your High School Equivalency Diploma. Applicants with a bachelor’s degree are still required to submit high school documentation.
Submit official transcripts from all colleges attended. Falsification or failure to supply the correct information may be considered grounds for rejection or dismissal. If it is determined that you have attended a college that was not listed on your application, the transcript will be required. If you are unable to submit an official transcript due to a hold on your account at the college, you will be ineligible to apply at this time.
STEP 3 – Placement Assessment:
Take any required placement assessments or qualify for a waiver. You may use NC DAP scores taken at another community college. If your math scores or your developmental math classes are more than 5 years old and you have not completed a qualifying college level math class, you will need to retest.
STEP 4 – Lancer Account:
Set up your LCC student account. Check WebAdvisor to see when all transcripts have been received. You must use your Lancer email account to correspond with Health Sciences admission staff.
STEP 5 – INTENT TO APPLY:
INTENT TO APPLY: Opening in September 2018 for all 2019FA programs.

You must complete Steps 1-4 before submitting the INTENT TO APPLY form. You must satisfy any course prerequisites before submitting the INTENT TO APPLY form. You will receive a confirmation email indicating that your INTENT TO APPLY was received.
STEP 6 – Eligibility Review:
The Health Sciences Advisor will review your transcripts. You will receive a second email indicating you have met the math requirements and you may move to step 7. You will also receive your Health Sciences Application Packet as an attachment to the email. If you have not provided proof of the math requirements, you will receive an email requesting that you contact the Health Sciences Admissions Advisor to provide missing information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
