Clinical Sites

Aberdeen, South Dakota

Spearfish, South Dakota
Mankato, Minnesota
St. James Minnesota
Fairmont, Minnesota

Student clinical obligations include health form with an updated vaccination record and background check.  Students will be required to rotate each semester through various shifts including evenings and weekends.  Students assigned to clinical experiences are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from the site. To provide a varied and worthwhile clinical experience, the student may be required to travel to distance sites from their residence. Students are responsible for transportation costs. Students may car pool and share the cost of transportation. In some courses students need individual transportation.

In addition to tuition and campus registration fees, students enrolled in the Radiologic Technology Program will incur some additional expenses. These values are approximate. 

  • Textbook for the all program courses (new):           $1200.00
  • Physical and Immunizations:                                       $300.00
