American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)

The ARRT examination is administered continuously throughout the year at Pearson VUE Centers. Pearson Vue test centers provide computerized testing for many organizations. Schedule your ARRT examination appointment.
Students may take the exam as early as the day after graduation from the program. The ARRT examination for Radiologic Technology is a 220 question, multiple-choice examination, taken at a computer terminal, with completion of the examination limited to three and a half hours. Twenty of the test questions are pilot questions, which are not included in the final score.
The cost of the exam is $200.00. Beginning January 2015, all candidates must have earned an associates degree or (more advanced) degree from an accrediting agency recognized by the ARRT to be eligible to sit for the registry examination.
