If you are hoping to move into management or imaging teaching roles, use your active registry to earn the UW-Milwaukee Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences: Diagnostic Imaging degree program, offered through the UW Flexible Option.

Program Description

The UW-Milwaukee Diagnostic Imaging Bachelor’s degree is designed for experienced healthcare professionals who want to move into leadership roles and hold one of the following active registries:

  • ARDMS (American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography)
  • ARMRIT (American Registry of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technologists)
  • ARRT (American Registry of Radiologic Technologists)
  • CCI (Cardiovascular Credentialing International) registry

Your active registry gives you a minimum of 60 advanced standing credits toward the 120 credits needed for completion. Upon admission to UWM and confirmation of your active registry, you will be awarded 60 credits toward completion of your degree.

This degree is offered through the competency-based UW Flexible Option, which allows you to:

  • Build on the expertise you have developed on the job and in your previous experience or academic work.
  • Fit school into your life. Start any month. Without semester schedules, group work, class discussions, or scheduled log-on requirements, you can earn your degree when it works for you.
  • Control your pace. Complete assignments when you’re able and then move on to the next. Take time off when you need it.
  • Earn an affordable degree. The Flex Tuition Guarantee locks in your tuition rate while you are actively enrolled in the program.

Career Opportunities

This degree completion program will prepare you to expand your career in the medical imaging industry, including:

  • Imaging department manager
  • Diagnostic imaging educator
  • Other healthcare manager roles


Candidates for the UW-Milwaukee Diagnostic Imaging degree must have an associate degree in a related field (e.g. diagnostic imaging, medical sonography, radiography) OR a hospital-based diagnostic imaging training program. You must also have an electronic copy of an active ARRT, ARMRIT, ARDMS, or CCI registry card.

It is not necessary for graduates of a hospital-based training program to acquire a transcript for admission. For associate-degree holders, transcripts are still needed for transfer-credit assessment.

Prior college transcripts from which you may transfer credit must be accredited by a regional or national accrediting organization recognized by the CHEA (Council for Higher Education Accreditation).
