This program is a collaborative effort between The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and two area medical facilities – Duke University Health System and UNC Health Care. These facilities provide funding for the program in an effort to support North Carolina workforce demands. Because this is a privately funded program, its continuation is contingent on sustained funding from each of these facilities. Please consult with the Division of Radiologic Science when planning on pursuing this academic program.

Upon completion of the program, graduates receive a Certificate in Radiography and may be eligible to take the national certification examination in Radiologic Technology administered by theĀ American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.


The UNC Certificate Program in Radiography prepares students to practice competently and effectively as radiologic technologists (radiographers) in medical center settings and community hospitals.


The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. This accreditation allows the students to meet the eligibility requirement for education for the national American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certification examination.
