Find an Accredited or Applicant Program

Accreditation of an educational program provides students and graduates assurance that the educational program will provide them with the requisite knowledge, skills, and values to competently perform the range of professional responsibilities expected by potential employers nationwide. It also assures they will be eligible for licensure in each of the 50 states.



The JRCERT is required to be responsive to allegations of non-compliance with any of its Standards. An investigation into allegations of non-compliance addresses only the program’s compliance with accreditation standards and will not affect the status of any individual student. The JRCERT takes seriously and follows up appropriately any allegation that an accredited program is not maintaining compliance with its accreditation standards. Please be advised the JRCERT cannot advocate on behalf of any one student.


What is Accreditation?

The JRCERT welcomes a collaborative relationship with our programs and faculty. We strive to work together with our programs to achieve our mutual goal of Excellence in Education. Through the process of programmatic accreditation, educators are assured that their educational programs are keeping pace with the profession and with standards developed through national consensus.

Become a Site Visitor

Site visitors are an integral part of the accreditation process. Radiologic science professionals are encouraged to consider serving as a site visitor. This experience provides opportunities to travel and meet professional colleagues throughout the country. Site visitors are able to gain knowledge regarding educational practices and share ideas with others. Service as a site visitor allows one to make a significant contribution to education and the profession as a whole.

Joe Garza, M.S., R.T.(R)

“The greatest reward of performing site visits is being able to share my knowledge and experience with other programs, as well as learning from the way their program operates.”
