About the Sonography Program
The online Diagnostic Medical Sonography degree completion program integrates basic medical science with ultrasound courses and a general education core. You will begin the program with a foundation for degree completion built upon two sources:
- Credit you complete at another college and transfer to Oregon Tech
- Credit granted for professional registries
For example, 80 credits are granted for the ARDMS registry for individuals with both OB/GYN and Abdomen credentials. Once admitted to the online sonography program, our staff will conduct a transfer evaluation of your prior coursework to see which classes are applicable toward your bachelor’s degree. After the evaluation is complete, we will contact you with an advising guide showing your transfer credits, registry credits, and future classes needed for completion. You may view the curriculum, including courses granted for registry, under Course Requirements.
Who is Eligible?
- You must be a Registered Diagnostic Sonographer through the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) in Abdomen and OB/GYN. Additional coursework is required for individuals with only one of the credentials.
- You must be employed in and have access to a full-service, properly equipped laboratory to complete the clinical didactic courses and be eligible for clinical externship credit. Instructor positions do not qualify.
- You must meet the Oregon Tech admissions criteria. Special admissions arrangements are also available.
