Upon completion of the program, graduates apply for and take the national certification exam in radiography administered by the ARRT. This certification is recognized throughout the United States. Most states also require a state level license to practice. In Texas, and in most other states, the ARRT certification is all that is required to obtain a state license. In the last semester, graduates from this program apply for a temporary license (good for one year) to practice until they take and pass the ARRT exam.
