Radiologic Technology Mandatory Professional Licensure Disclosure

New York State prides itself in the high quality of its licensed and certified professionals.  For the protection of its citizens, each license and certificate has requirements that individuals must meet in order to be licensed or certified in New York State.  SUNY’s academic programs leading to licensure or certification are carefully designed to meet and exceed these State requirements. This is a role SUNY plays in protecting the public.  Other states frequently have their own requirements, so if your goal is to practice in another state, this disclosure will help you check to see what that state requires.

Per U.S. Federal Regulations, §668.43 (2019 Rule), and in compliance with the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA) Manual version 19.2, SUNY Fulton-Montgomery Community College (FMCC) provides the following disclosure related to the educational requirements for professional licensure and certification.

This Disclosure is strictly limited to SUNY FMCC’s determination of whether its educational program, Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Radiologic Technology, that if successfully completed, would be sufficient to meet the educational licensure or certification requirements in a State requiring licensure. SUNY FMCC cannot provide verification of an individual’s ability to meet licensure or certification requirements unrelated to its educational programming.  Such individual determinations are made by state licensing boards and are fact-specific determinations.

This disclosure does not provide any guarantee that any particular state licensure or certification entity will approve or deny your application. Furthermore, this disclosure does not account for changes in state law or regulation that may affect your application for licensure and occur after this disclosure has been made.

SUNY FMCC has designed an educational program curriculum for an AAS in Radiologic Technology that if successfully completed is sufficient to meet the requirements to become a candidate for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Radiography Registry Exam and after achieving the required score, the candidate may apply for NYS licensure.
