JRCERT Branch Campus

Policy Statements

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT):

11.901 defines branch campus consistent with the United States Department of Education definition: a location of an institution that is apart and independent of the main campus of the sponsoring institution. The branch campus is independent if the location:
 
  • is permanent in nature;
  • offers courses in educational programs leading to a degree or certificate or other recognized credential;
  • has its own faculty and administrative or supervisory organization; and
  • has its own budgetary and hiring authority.
11.902 does not recognize branch campuses as falling under the accreditation award of the main campus of the sponsoring institution.
11.903 requires that each program location, whether designated as a branch campus or otherwise, have a separate accreditation award.
