Proctored Exams

The Imaging Sciences Program requires course exams to be proctored and encourages the proctoring to be conducted at Rush University. For those students who are unable to come to Rush University, an external official proctoring site may be approved by the program director. Any upfront external proctoring charges are the responsibility of the student and will be reimbursed at the end of the semester term. External proctoring charges are dependent on the facility that is chosen and charges can range from $15-$25 per exam seating.

Medical Imaging Technologists’ Career Options

Medical imaging is one of the fastest growing professions in the country. According to the US Bureau of Labor & Statistics, employment of radiologic and MRI technologists is projected to grow 13% from 2016 to 2026.

The need for advanced medical imaging technologists is expected to increase significantly due to:

  • Increases in the population and aging of the population.
  • Changes in treatment and technology.
  • Prevalence of disease states or conditions requiring advanced diagnostic and interventional radiography.
  • Advisory focuses on Medicare program policies. Policies may apply to selected private payers in addressing coding, coverage, and payment for diagnostic CT & MRI and Interventional procedures.
  • According to American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), salaries will also increase for those who possess an advanced educational degree, along with the knowledge and skills for advanced practice.

A bachelor’s degree in imaging sciences serves as a value for all career paths and upward mobility potential that would otherwise limit a technologist with an associate’s degree.

Licensure Information

Institutions are required to make public whether a program is designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional license or certification that is required for employment in an occupation or is advertised as meeting such requirements. Institutions are required to make public, for each state, whether the completion of that program would be sufficient to meet licensure requirements in a state for that occupation, did not meet requirements or has not made a determination.  These requirements apply to all programs offered via all modalities (distance education and not).

Students should review the specific academic requirements for the program in which they are enrolling, including those related to practicum/internship as well as pre-qualifications for licensure such as the need for a criminal background check. We highly recommend that students contact the applicable licensure board(s) in their state of residence or in the state where they intend to obtain a license before beginning an academic program that results in licensure and prior to beginning any internship/practicum. Many licensure boards have additional requirements beyond successful degree completion to obtain a license. Please be advised that state laws, regulations, and policies may change at any time. Changes in requirements can impact the program’s ability to meet educational requirements for licensure. Enrolled and prospective students are strongly encouraged to check with the licensing board(s) in their state of residence or in the state in which they intend to obtain a license for the most recent information and requirements. The College will periodically review the state requirements. The College of Health Sciences disclosure does not provide any guarantee that any particular state licensure or certification entity will approve or deny a student’s application.
