American Registry of Radiologic Technologists' Ethics Requirement
Before consideration for admission, any applicant who has been involved in a criminal proceeding or who has been charged with or convicted of a crime must file a request for a pre-application review with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists in order to obtain a ruling on the impact of the situation on their eligibility for certification and registration. A charge or conviction of, a plea of guilty to, or a plea of novo contender (no contest) to an offense that is classified as a misdemeanor or felony constitutes a conviction for ARRT purposes. This includes situations in which the result is deferred or withheld adjudication, or suspended or withheld sentence. Military court-martial must also be reported.
The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists' determination of eligibility for examination will determine the applicant's eligibility for consideration for admission to the program. The final order must be included with the Application for Admittance to the Radiology Program. Potential applicants must contact the ARRT directly:
