Here's your roadmap to finishing your University degree faster with PLR credits from the (Diagnostic) Radiologic Technology credential.

How many college credits is it worth?

The most current University review identified up to 34 credit(s) in course equivalencies at Thomas Edison State University for successfully completing the (Diagnostic) Radiologic Technology credential prior to August 2013. Through our CACE partnership, the University awards up to 57 credits in course equivalencies for qualifying credentials earned between September 2013 and December 2020. This is based upon SUNY Empire State College's review. A student's credit eligibility is determined according to the submission of appropriate documentation as well as the documented date of successful credential completion. If you completed your credential outside the effective dates listed in the following table, check the notes below the table for any reference to an earlier University review.

The credential components have been divided into the following courses:

How do I get started? top of page

  • Submit documentation of successful completion

    Students should submit a notarized copy of their hospital-based Radiologic Technology certificate or another verification of certification issued by The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, NJ Dept. of Environmental Protection, or NJ's Radiologic Technology Board of Examiners. Students should download and submit this cover sheet along with the notarized documentation.


Can I transfer PLR credit to another institution? top of page

If you are seeking to transfer the PLR credits to another college, the decision whether or not to accept these credits in transfer rests with that college. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the receiving institution's academic policy will allow transfer of each credit. Thomas Edison State University offers a non-degree service called Individual Learning Account that may be helpful.
