The Yuba College Radiologic Technology Program accepts applicants once a year, in the Spring. The program is 5 1/2 semesters 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 4 alternates are selected for the Marysville campus and 4 students are selected for the Redding campus. Due to the loss of a major clinical facility in Redding, only 2 students will be selected for the 2020-2021 cohort.
Students selected as alternates must attend the RT 55 orientation class. Alternates, if not chosen to participate in the Program during the year selected, are given an opportunity to fill a cohort position the following year.
