The Yuba College Radiologic Technology Program accepts applicants once a year, in the Spring. The program is 22 months in length. Students, upon successful completion, will earn an Associate of Science (A.S.) degree.
Yuba College hosts a classroom in Marysville and Redding, California. 20 students and 5 alternates are selected for the Marysville campus. 5 students and 2 alternates are selected for the Redding campus. Effective 2023, a total of 15 alternates will be selected.
Students accepted as well as alternates are required to take RT 55 (3-day mandatory orientation) in May. An all-day orientation on the third Thursday in May will replace RT 55 in 2023. Failure to attend the orientation will result in the acceptance letter being revoked.
