student’s responsibility. Additionally, some program clinical affiliates require drug screens
(initial and random), criminal background checks, periodic tuberculosis skin tests and
specific vaccinations. If the student is placed in a facility requiring any/all of these items, the
cost will be the student’s responsibility. If the student did not submit the health
documentation (immunization, PPD, HepB Vacc., physical assessment, etc.) prior to
acceptance, these documents will need to be submitted to the RADS program director no
later than February 1
following acceptance. Failure to provide this documentation will

Please refer to the program’s handbook on the college web site for the RADS program’s
complete pregnancy policy. Any student that is pregnant or becomes pregnant while in the
Radiologic Science program should consider the following:
1. Exposure to communicable diseases. As a student, one may be exposed to a
variety of communicable diseases such as rubella and the Hepatitis C virus
which are a serious danger to the developing fetus. It is the pregnant student’s
responsibility to avoid those patients that may put them at risk.
2. Students are at risk to radiation exposure while performing radiographic exams.
Pregnant students must protect themselves and the unborn child(ren) by using
radiation protection practices and avoided as much radiation as possible until
after the first trimester.
3. If the student’s medical condition limits her ability to continue in the program, she
may choose to withdraw and continue with the following cohort of RADS
students, if a position is available, beginning with the withdrawn course(s).
Excessive absences over the specified allowed amount (excused or unexcused)
may cause the student to be dropped from that/those course(s).
4. If a student discovers she is pregnant, disclosure of the pregnancy to program
faculty is voluntary. If she chooses to disclose the pregnancy, a Disclosure Form
will need to be completed and submitted to the program director. A Withdrawal of
Disclosure Form is also available to be completed if the student needs to
withdraw the disclosure.
