MVCC's Radiologic Technology program is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
After review of the requested interim report, the continuing accreditation status of the associate degree radiography program sponsored by Mohawk Valley Community College was considered at the May 19, 2020, meeting of the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). The JRCERT is the only agency recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) for the accreditation of traditional and distance delivery educational programs in radiography, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance, and medical dosimetry. Specialized accreditation awarded by the JRCERT offers institutions significant value by providing peer evaluation and by assuring the public of quality professional education in the radiologic sciences. The program was evaluated according to the Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Radiography (2014). The JRCERT took the following action:
- Maintenance of Accreditation for a period of eight years.
The next site visit is tentatively scheduled for the First Quarter of 2024.
