RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM

PROGRAM EFFECTIVENESS DATA

In addition to the goals and student learning outcomes listed elsewhere on this site, the performance of the program as reflected through program effectiveness data as defined by the:

 Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT)
 20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 2850,
Chicago, IL, 60606-3182;
312)-704-5300, (www.jrcert.org).

The Program is accredited by the JRCERT, and by the S.C. Radiation Quality Standards Association.

Program effectiveness data includes the program completion rate, credentialing examination pass rate, and job placement rate. Explanation of these measures and program data that correspond with the annual report most recently submitted to the JRCERT are noted below. The information can also be obtained at http://www.jrcert.org/programs-faculty/. (Please click on the "FAQ's" below the picture.) Questions about program effectiveness data should be directed to the Program Director.

COMPLETION RATE - This is an annual measurement of the number of students that began the program divided by the number of students that actually completed the program.

2014 13 100% 92.5
Five-Year Average - 100%

JOB PLACEMENT RATE - This is the number of students that gain employment in the radiologic sciences within six months of graduation versus the number that graduate and are actively seeking employment. The figures reflect an average over a five-year span. The program's job placement rate as an average from the years 2008 through 2013. (Not available for the graduating class of 2014 at this time.)
