Outcomes & Goals

Start with us on the path to becoming a New York State licensed Radiographer.


An agreement with SUNY Empire State College allows us to award a certificate of completion (diploma) from CVPH School of Radiologic Technology and at least an associate's degree from SUNY Empire State College.  This allows you to take the Registry Exam through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

Liberal arts studies by SUNY Empire State College are provided at the Plattsburgh unit of the Northeast Center located on the Plattsburgh State campus. The 40 college credits awarded to the School of Radiologic Technology are combined with the 24 liberal arts credits completed during the two-year program to assure a minimum of an Associate Degree in Science. The registered areas are Science, Math and Technology (Radiologic) and are in addition to a Radiology School diploma. You may transfer previous earned credit to work toward a higher degree, but must take at least 24 credits with Empire State during the 24 months enrolled regardless of previous education. Classes through Empire State are usually completed online.
