Program Effectiveness Data

COMPLETION RATE

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) defines program completion rate as “an annual figure defined as the number of students who complete the program within 150% of the stated program length.” In other words, program completion rate provides a percentage of students who graduate from a cohort of students compared to the original number of students who began the program within that same cohort. For 2014, ASU’s Radiologic Science program completion rate was 71.4%. Out of the seven students that began the program in January 2013, five of those students graduated in December 2014. For the cohort that began in January 2014 and graduated in December 2015, the program completion rate was 70%. For the cohort that began in January 2015 and graduated in December 2016, the program completion rate was 70%. For the cohort that began in January 2016 and graduated in December 2017, the program completion rate was 71.4%. For the cohort that began in January 2017 and graduated in December 2018, the program completion rate was 83.3%. For the cohort that began in January 2018 and graduated in December 2019, the program completion rate was 71.4%.
