Our program graduates students in December, so our annual report on these program effectiveness measures is posted in January of each year. Data for the most recent 5-year period (2013-2017) is listed below.
Program Completion Rate
The annual program completion rate is defined as the number of students who complete the program within 150% of the stated program length of 28 months. The program benchmark is 60% or greater; program start date is the date students are placed in the clinical education component.
|Year||Percent Completion||Number of Students|
|2013||85%||20 started, 17 graduated|
|2014||60%||20 started, 12 graduated|
|2015||59%||27 started, 16 graduated|
|2016||56%||25 started, 14 graduated|
|2017||78%||23 started, 18 graduated|
|5-Year Average||66.96||115 started, 77 graduated|
Credentialing Examination Pass Rate
Five-year average credentialing examination pass rate of 75% or greater at first attempt on the ARRT certification examination for radiography within six months of graduation.
|2013||100%||17 of 17|
|2014||100%||12 of 12|
|2015||100%||15 of 15|
|2016||93%||14 of 15|
|2017||94%||17 of 18|
|Five-Year Average||97.4%||75 of 77|
Job Placement Rate
Five-year average job placement rate of 75% or more within 12 months of graduation for graduates actively seeking employment in radiologic science. Graduate surveys were completed six months following graduation in 2012; beginning in 2013 the JRCERT changed the data collection period to 12 months following graduation.
|Year||Percent Job Placement||Number of Graduates|
|2013||88%||5 of 17 graduates actively seeking|
|2014||90%||9 of 10 graduates actively seeking|
15 of 15 graduates actively seeking
|2016||100%||14 of 14 graduates actively seeking|
|2017||100%||15 of 15 graduates actively seeking|
|Five-Year Average||95.8%||68 of 71 graduates reported actively employment|
The JRCERT has defined “not actively seeking employment” as:
- Graduate fails to communicate with program officials regarding employment status after multiple attempts OR
- Graduate is unwilling to seek employment that requires relocation OR
- Graduate is unwilling to accept employment due to salary or hours OR
- Graduate is on active military duty OR
- Graduate is continuing education.
