ABERDEEN, S.D. - Presentation College is excited to announce that Radiologic Technology Program has received full re-accreditation from the Joint Review Commission on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

“We are very proud of our graduates from our JRCERT Accredited Radiologic Technology Bachelor of Science Program and appreciate the excellent work they are doing as registered professionals,” said Carrie Mestas, Radiologic Technology Program Director. “I am thrilled that the program received the full 8-year accreditation status. This achievement wouldn’t be possible without the faculty and clinical partners who play a vital role in the development and support of our students to achieve their fullest potential”

The continuing accreditation status of the program was considered at the July 20, 2021, meeting of the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology. The program was evaluated according to the Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Radiography (2014) and documented compliance with all relevant Standards; therefore, the JRCERT awards accreditation for a period of eight years, which is the maximum duration that may be awarded.

“I am proud of the hard work and dedication of Presentation College’s Radiologic Technology Program faculty that has led to a successful re-accreditation process. Earning this status is demonstration of their commitment to the students and delivery of a high-quality education,” stated Dr. Trisha Waldman, Dean of Health and Natural Science. 

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 educational programs in radiography. 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.
