Five-Year Average Credentialing Examination Pass Rate: 2009-2014 – 92%

This measure is defined as the number of graduates who passed the American Registry of Radiologic Technology (ARRT) credentialing examination on their first attempt within six months of graduation from the program. The result reflects the average over the five-year period from Jan. 1, 2009 through Dec. 31, 2014. Fifty-six of the 61 graduates who took the examination passed on their first attempt.

Five-Year Average Job Placement Rate: 2009-2014 – 84%

This measure 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 result reflects the average over the five-year period from Jan. 1, 2009 through Dec. 31, 2014. Forty-one of the 49 graduates obtained employment in the radiologic sciences within 12 months of graduation.
