Total credits required for graduation (B.S. Medical Imaging) - 129 (20 cr. toward DMS Certificate)
*Senior year of B.S. - Medical Imaging overlaps with Sessions I and II of the DMS Certificate - DMS courses on alternating weekends. 

#DMS 130 (Clinical Sonography I) is an equivalent course for MI 275 Clinical Experience VII 

3 Graduation Requirements: Must take 2 writing intensive courses, and fulfill both technical (TC 000) and oral competency requirements.

Radiography registry exam taken at the end of May*. In June, following graduation, the student continues with Session III-V. See below for continuation of course sequence.

Students can complete both the B.S. in Medical Imaging and the DMS Certificate in less than 5 academic years following this sequence.  For example, students entering as freshmen in Fall, 2014 can complete both by the end of March, 2019.  This will result in the student (already possessing the professional A.R.R.T. credential) being registry-eligible and will enable them to apply for the national exam administered by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS).  Upon successful completion of the examination, the student will earn the professional credential of Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS). The student will then hold the professional credential of:

Mary Smith, B.S., R.T. (R), RDMS
