Radiography Accreditation

The performance of the radiography program is reflected through program effectiveness data as defined by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). Program effectiveness data includes the program completion rate, credentialing examination pass rate, and the job placement rate for the program. Explanation of these measures and program data that correspond with the annual report most recently submitted to the JRCERT are provided below. This information is also provided at www.jrcert.org/resources/program-effectiveness-data

Questions about the program effectiveness data should be directed to the Radiography Program Coordinator.

The radiography program’s 2019 annual report to the JRCERT is reflected as the following:

Completion Rate – January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019

This is an annual measurement of the number of students that began the program divided by the number of students who completed the program. The program’s completion rate for 2019 was 77%. Ten (10) of the sixteen (13) students who were expected to complete in 2019 went on to complete the program in that year.

Credentialing Examination Pass Rate – 2015-2019

This is the number of students that pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination on the first attempt within six months of graduation from the program. The figure reflects an average over a five-year span. The number of first-time examinees taking the national certification examination within six months of graduation between 2015 and 2019 was 59 students. The number of first-time examinees passing the national credentialing examination on the first attempt within six months of graduation between 2015 and 2019 was 57 students. The program’s credentialing examination pass rate stated as an average from the years 2015 through 2019 is 98%.

Job Placement Rate – 2015 – 2019

This is defined as the number of graduates employed in the radiologic sciences within twelve months compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences during the five- year reporting period (2015 – 2019). Graduates who are not actively seeking employment were not included in this data. The JRCERT defines “not actively seeking employment” as: 1) graduates fails to communicate with program officials regarding employment status after multiple attempts, or 2) graduate is unwilling to seek employment that requires relocation, or 3) graduate is unwilling to accept employment due to salary or hours, or 4) graduate is on active military duty, or 5) graduate is continuing education. The radiography program’s Job Placement Rate is 100%. Fifty-seven (57) out of the fifty-seven (57) students actively seeking employment were successfully employed within twelve months after graduation.
