Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (RPSGT) to AAS in PSG Transition
The Polysomnography curriculum prepares individuals, working in conjunction with a physician, to perform and interpret sleep studies and to provide comprehensive clinical evaluations that are required for the diagnosis of sleep related disorders.
Students should acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to perform sleep studies, including recording and interpreting events observed during sleep. Treatment of sleep related disorders and patient education focused on healthy sleep habits will also be discussed.
The RPSGT to AAS in PSG Transition program is designed for current unrestricted Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (RPSGT) to complete the Associate in Applied Science Polysomnography Degree. Applicants must meet the minimum admissions requirements, which includes submitting a current RPSGT certificate/license/credential.
Students are required to complete at minimum 25 percent of the program requirements at LCC as mandated by SACSCOC, and each student will receive an individualized education plan to ensure this requirement is met. Applicants have the opportunity to complete selected PSG courses via credit by exam (see college catalog), and PSG faculty will administer the exams related to this process. In the event a student is unsuccessful in the credit by exam process, the student may choose to complete the program by enrolling in the next available cohort on campus. Additionally, applicants may submit previous college work to be evaluated for possible transfer credits. Upon completion graduates are eligible to apply for advanced 2+2 baccalaureate programs. Applicants can apply at any time throughout the year to the PSG Department.
