Program Effectiveness Data

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiology Technology, JRCERT, collects data concerning completion rates, credentialing examination pass rates and job placement rates for accredited programs. Click on this link to go to their website.

  • Program Completion Rate (calculated annually) - The number of students who complete the program within a cohort compared to the number who enrolled in the cohort initially. Our program benchmark is that greater than or equal to 80 percent of the students that begin the program will complete it within three years.
  • Credentialing Examination Pass Rate (five-year average) - The number of graduates who pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technology Exam (ARRT, Radiography) on the first attempt within six months of graduation compared with the number of graduates who took the exam during the same five-year period. Our program benchmark is a graduate annual pass rate of 90 percent or above.
  • Job Placement Rate (five-year average) - The number of graduates employed in the radiologic sciences, within one year of graduation, compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences. Our program benchmark is greater than or equal to 75% of the graduates will be employed in the profession within one year of graduation.
