The Columbus State Community College Medical Imaging program is accredited by the
Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). In compliance
with the JRCERT Standards, the program has made program effectiveness data available
to students and the general public.
Medical Imaging Program Effectiveness 2015-2019. Revised 9/17/2020
Explanation: Credentialing examination, job placement, and program completion data must be reported
annually to the JRCERT. Graduate and employer satisfaction data must be collected
as part of the program’s assessment process.
Credentialing examination pass rate is defined as the number of student graduates
who pass, on first attempt, the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)
certification examination or an unrestricted state licensing examination compared
with the number of graduates who take the examination within six months of graduation.
Job placement rate is defined as the number of graduates employed in the radiologic
sciences compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic
sciences. The JRCERT has defined not actively seeking employment as: 1) graduate fails
to communicate with program officials regarding employment status after multiple attempts,
2) graduate is unwilling to seek employment that requires relocation, 3) graduate
is unwilling to accept employment due to salary or hours, 4) graduate is on active
military duty, and/or 5) graduate is continuing education.
Program completion rate is defined as the number of students who complete the program
within 150% of the stated program length. The program must establish a benchmark for
its program completion rate. The program specifies the entry point (e.g., required
orientation date, final drop/add date, final date to drop with 100% tuition refund,
official class roster date, etc.) used in calculating program’s completion rate.
