Program Effectiveness

The Radiography Program at Washtenaw Community College is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).  In compliance with the JRCERT Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Radiography, the Program's Effectiveness Data (credentialing examination pass rate, job placement rate, and program completion rate) must be made available to perspective students and the general public.  The following are program effectiveness data for the Washtenaw Community College Radiography Program. 

Program Completion Rate

The program completion rate is calculated by dividing the number of students who completed the program within 150% of the stated program length by the number of the students initially admitted to the Program. This rate fluctuates based on the number of students who voluntarily withdrew or were dismissed from the program for academic or personal reasons.

Program Completion Rate

Year # Students initially admitted # Graduates   Percentage Completion
2015 31 22 (4 voluntary withdrawals; 5 dismissals) 71%
2016 31 23 (7 voluntary withdrawals; 1 dismissals) 74%
2017 31 22 (4 voluntary withdrawals; 5 dismissals) 71%
2018 31 22 (5 voluntary withdrawals; 4 dismissals) 71%
2019 31 23 (4 voluntary withdrawals; 4 dismissals) 74%
Total 155 112    
5-Year Average: 72%

Job Placement Rate
The job placement rate is the number of graduates employed in the radiologic sciences, within twelve months of graduation, 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.

Year # graduates that actively sought employment # of graduates that found employment within 12-months of graduation % Employed
2015 17 17 100%
2016 23 23 100%
2017 19 19 100%
