Radiography Collaborative Program

A.A.S. Degree in Health Sciences 

Christina Mortellaro, Advisor

Through this collaborative program between Saint Peter’s University and the Hudson County Community College School of Radiography or Englewood Hospital School of Radiography, students earn a Degree of Associate of Applied Science in Health Sciences (AAS) from Saint Peter’s University. This degree begins with one year (32 credits or at least 18 credits for transfer students) of study at Saint Peter’s University followed by two years of study, including summers, at CarePoint Health School of Radiography or Englewood Hospital School of Radiography. Students are awarded the AAS degree from Saint Peter’s University upon documented evidence of successfully completing the CarePoint Health School of Radiography program or the Englewood Hospital School of Radiography program, but prior to taking the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam. The successful completion of this program does not confer eligibility for advanced certification or licensure.

Students in this program are admitted to Saint Peter’s University into the Health Sciences, Radiography Track. Students apply for Conditional Admit Status to the Hudson County Community College School of Radiography or Englewood Hospital School of Radiography during their second semester at Saint Peter’s, and the granting of Conditional Admit Status is at the sole discretion of School of Radiography at either Hudson County Community College or Englewood Hospital. Students must meet the admission requirements of the particular School of Radiography to which they are applying, be recommended by Saint Peter’s Health Professions Advisory Committee, successfully complete an interview at Hudson County Community College School of Radiography or Englewood Hospital School of Radiography, and receive a passing grade of C or higher in any of the following courses taken during the fall semester at Saint Peter’s University: BI-171 and BI-172, PS-151, MA-115, either PL-100 or TH-110, CS-150, EL-123, SO-121, and a Composition sequence based on placement: CM-104,CM-106/CM-117, or CM-120.

Once students with Conditional Admit Status successfully complete the required spring semester courses with a grade of C or higher in any of the remaining courses listed above, they may apply for Admit Status through the Admissions Office of Hudson County Community College or Englewood Hospital. Students must satisfy all of the admission requirements of the particular School of Radiography to which they are applying, including volunteer service and the required level of performance on an entrance examination. The granting of admission is at the sole discretion of each individual School of Radiography.

For more detailed information about the admission requirements, students should consult the Program Advisor. Students entering Saint Peter’s University in the Health Sciences, Radiography Track should consult the Program Advisor early and often to make sure they take the required courses in the correct sequence, meet all of Saint Peter’s requirements, and understand the requirements of Hudson County Community College or Englewood Hospital School of Radiography.

Students who are not granted Conditional Admit Status by Hudson County Community College or Englewood Hospital School of Radiography cannot complete the A.A.S. Degree in Health Sciences.  These students may, however, switch to one of the Associate's degree options offered by the School of Professional and Continuing Studies or to one of the Bachelor's degree options offered by the College of Arts and Sciences/School of Business Administration.  Depending on the option chosen, it may take longer than two years to complete an Associate's degree or longer than four years to complete a Bachelor's degree.
