Radiologic Technology Program Receives JRCERT Accreditation

SUNY Orange’s Radiologic Technology program has recently gained accreditation from the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

The JRCERT accreditation is effective immediately and will apply to the upcoming graduates of the Radiologic Technology program who will complete their degree requirements in August. The Class of 2016 pinning ceremony is scheduled for 6 p.m., Friday, Aug. 5 in Kaplan Hall on the College’s Newburgh campus.

The College and its Radiologic Technology program have long been accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The additional JRCERT accreditation, pursued voluntarily by SUNY Orange, is not required for SUNY Orange graduates to gain licensure. However, it is a value-added accreditation.

Graduates from the SUNY Orange Radiologic Technology program sit for the certification exam given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists in order to become a radiographer. Each year, SUNY Orange graduates approximately 20-25 students from its Radiologic Technology program. Over the past five years, SUNY Orange graduates have a 100 percent pass rate on the ARRT licensing exam, with 98 percent (102 of 104) passing on the first attempt.
