Entry Information

Check out the information below to learn how you can get started!

When Can I Start?


This program typically admits students into first quarter core courses in the fall. Registration for Fall Quarter starts halfway through Spring Quarter.


This program is currently in the process of ending its practice of admitting Students via a waitlist. Students who submitted their program entry paperwork before August 31st, 2018, will be admitted through our Grandfathering Process. The Grandfathering Process for Radiologic Technology is as follows: grandfathered students will be contacted and asked to register in the order their names were added to the program waitlist. Once this waitlist has been exhausted, remaining program-ready students will be allowed to register. Students will be emailed to notify them that the waitlist has been exhausted and program seats have opened.


There are two cohorts for Radiologic Technology:
  • Students who register for the Bellingham cohort will attend classes at Bellingham Technical College.
  • Students who register for the Everett cohort will attend classes at Everett Community College.
Students will be assigned regional clinical experience, in a variety of shifts at hospitals and clinics across Whatcom, Skagit, Island, Snohomish, and King Counties.

What Are The Minimum Entry Requirements?


Entry Requirements

Students who have completed ALL prerequisite requirements before the start of first quarter core courses will be admitted, after the conclusion of our Grandfathering process, and based on the order in which they register for remaining open seats.

    • Tracy attended Trident Technical College in Charleston, SC. She graduated with Honors from the Radiologic Technology Program in 1991, and the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program in 1992. The majority of her career as a Radiologic Technologist was spent in Orthopedics. She enjoyed being a Technologist, but her greatest desire was to teach. Tracy was given that opportunity in 1999 at Valencia Community College in Orlando, FL. She has been teaching in the BTC Rad Tech program since it started in late 2002. The best thing about teaching is helping others learn a new skill, and watching them grow in their knowledge of the profession. She really enjoys those "light bulb" moments!
