Program Effectiveness Data
In addition to the goals and student learning outcomes listed elsewhere on this site, the performance of the program is reflected through program effectiveness data as defined by:
Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT)
20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 2850
Chicago, IL 60606-3182
Program effectiveness data includes the program completion rate, credentialing examination pass rate and job placement rate. Explanations of these measures and program data that correspond with the annual report most recently submitted to the JRCERT are noted below. This information can also be obtained at http://www.jrcert.org/resources/program-effectiveness-data. Questions about the program effectiveness data should be directed to the Program Manager.
The Radiography program’s 2021 annual report to the JRCERT reflected the following:
Completion Rate – Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2021
This is an annual measurement of the number of students that actually completed the program divided by the number of students that began the program. The program’s completion rate for 2021 was 77%. Accepted 13 students and 10 completed the program in 2021.
Credentialing Examination Pass Rate – 2017 through 2021
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 program’s credentialing examination pass rate stated as an average from the years 2017 through 2021 is 84.4%. Forty- eight of the fifty-seven graduates of this program taking the ARRT certification examination within six months of graduation passed on the first attempt.
Job Placement Rate – 2017 through 2021
This is the number of students that gain employment in the radiologic sciences within twelve months of graduation versus the number that graduate and are actively seeking employment. The figure reflects an average over a five-year span. The program’s job placement rate as an average from the years 2017 through 2021 is 100%. Fifty of the fifty that passed the ARRT Boards obtained employment in the radiologic sciences within twelve months of graduation. The number of graduates vary from the credentialing exam pass rate to the job placement rate. Graduates who are not actively seeking employment are not included in this calculation. The JRCERT has defined not actively seeking employment as:
- Graduate fails to communicate with program officials regarding
employment status after multiple attempts,
- Graduate is unwilling to seek employment that requires relocation,
- Graduate is unwilling to accept employment due to salary or hours,
- Graduate is on active military duty, and/or
- Graduate is continuing education.
High school dual credit provides high school students the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school, without leaving their high school classroom. The courses are taught by certified high school instructors using technical college curriculum, grading policies and textbooks.
Has previous life experience already helped you build knowledge and skills applicable to your studies? Applying previously earned credits to a program of study can save you both time spent in the classroom and money spent on tuition and fees.
Financial Aid is provided to aid eligible associate degree and technical diploma programs with 28 credits or more. Processing can take 4-6 weeks after a student’s completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is received.
