No. Students are provided a clinical schedule at the beginning of each semester. Clinical schedules include weekdays and weekends as well as first and second shift hours. The total number of clinical hours completed during weekends and second shift hours are less than 25% of the total number of clinical hours required by the program.
Students may have Monday – Friday second-shift hours as well as weekend (Saturday and Sunday) hours in addition to the Monday – Friday daytime hours.
Many of our students have families, work, and attend school. The students are apprised during the program orientation of the number of hours required for the program so they may adjust work hours each semester to accommodate school schedules. Class and clinical schedules will not be adjusted for student work schedules. Students are advised to be disciplined and practice good time management skills throughout the program.
Spartanburg Community College’s tuition fees are very affordable. Our Financial Aid office will be glad to counsel with any student who needs advice to apply for grants, lottery, or scholarships.
There are additional fees associated with the radiologic technology program such as uniforms/lab jackets, criminal background investigation and drug testing, CPR certification, testing fees, etc.
