CTMR Program Effectiveness Data

Program Retention or completion rate is defined as the number of students who complete the program within 150% of the stated program length.  The rate is determined by the number of students who graduate within 13 months of entry into the program compared to the number of students who are enrolled and attend the first day of scheduled class.  The MSU CTMR Program has a benchmark of retaining at least 80% of the admitted students.

Job Placement Rate is defined as the number graduates employed in the imaging sciences compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the imaging sciences.  The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (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.  The MSU CTMR Program has a benchmark of at least 75% of the student graduates who seek employment, will find jobs within 12 months of program completion.  Job placement rate is one variable considered when admission targets are set.
