program has recently undergone a
complete curriculum revision to ensure
that instruction is the most current and
the best quality possible. We were just
awarded reaccreditation of 8 years,
maximum award possible for programmatic accreditation by the JRCERT. Our
exam pass rate and our employment rate
are some of the best in the state. And in
recent years our attrition rate has been
excellent. Our graduates also have been
cross trained in advanced technologies
such as CT, MRI, Heart Cath and interventional, as well as Mammography. We
also have small class sizes and excellent
educator to student ratios.

universities for student’s interested in completed our program in Radiologic Sciences. The ARRT (national exam provider) now
requires the completion of a professional program in Radiologic Sciences and the completion of a minimum of an Associates Degree to be able to take national board testing to practice as a Radiographer. An articulation agreement with Northwestern
State University through online Associates degree in General Studies with Concentration in Radiologic Sciences
can be done concurrently with our Professional Program and is the most cost effective and efficient of the
current options. Students may also choose to complete their pre-requisites through River Parishes Community College and be
awarded a Certificate of General Studies and then take an additional 29-33 credit hours through RPCC to earn an Associates Degree in General Studies with a concentration in a variety of Science fields. Students may choose to complete their pre-requisites
through Baton Rouge Community College and the additional course work required to earn their Associates degree in Science or
General Studies as well. See the BRG SORT Program Director or Registrar for the correct contact person for advising at each of
