Program Effectiveness Data

Dear Prospective RT Student,

Thank you for your interest in our Rad Tech program. We apologize for the delay in posting information on the application process and link. Our college website was recently updated, and our department website is still under construction. We are aware of the glitch in the application link.

As of now, we are not taking any new applicants at this moment. We have no openings for Fall 2023 and Fall 2024. 

We may plan on taking alternative applications for Fall 2024 and 2025. It will be via lottery. We will ask students to send us a copy of their unofficial transcript and fill out a questionnaire. All to be determined soon. Of course, we would make that application period later this year, at a reasonable deadline. Please wait for the information to be posted.

If you are on the Fall 2023 waitlist, please email the department at Please email us by Feb. 15, 2023. Please put in your email subject "Class of 2025 student". Please provide your full name and student ID number in the body of the email and state your intentions regarding whether you would like us to hold your spot or not.

If there are any openings for this Fall, we will bump up students from the Fall 2024 waitlist and reach out to those students.

If you are on the waitlist to be accepted in Fall 2024 or Fall 2025, please send an email to confirm your spot, along with the year you are on the waitlist, your student ID #, and your LACC student email address. 

The department is in process of forming a committee for the selection of applicants. More information to follow soon.

Please note, effective 2024, all applicants are required to provide documentation of a minimum of 40 volunteer hours at a medical imaging facility. We are affiliated with both Kaiser Permanente’s Los Angeles Medical Center (LAMC) and West LA hospitals, and Good Samaritan-PIH. I recommend contacting the Volunteer Services. Otherwise, try UCLA Ronald Reagan, USC Keck, Cedar Sinai, or any local clinical or hospital with a medical imaging department.

Other changes, RT 207 Patient Care is now a cohort class, not a prerequisite course. If you have already taken the class and passed with a C or greater, you do not need to retake the course upon acceptance. In addition, we archived RT 203 Intro to DR/ Anatomy and Positioning.

Thank you again for considering LACC's Rad Tech program. Please keep checking our website for update information. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. Best way is via email, as I am in the classroom or clinical sites.
