The following is the most current program effectiveness data for the Bachelor of Science radiology program at the University of Southern Indiana. Our accreditation agency, the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), defines and publishes this information.

Job placement rate 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 JRCERT has defined not actively seeking employment as:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         a. graduate fails to communicate with program officials regarding employment status after multiple attempts,
