Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU)

Truckee Meadows Community College is fully accredited by Northwestern Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) and the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

NWCCU is an institutional accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the United States Department of Education (USDE).

Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT)

The JRCERT is a programmatic accrediting body recognized by the USDE to accredit radiography programs.

Both accrediting agencies are acceptable to the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) which allows students to sit for the national certification examination in radiography.

American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)

The TMCC Radiologic Technology program is recognized by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) as meeting national professional standards.

The ARRT is the national agency responsible for testing, certifying, registering, and renewing registration of Radiologic Technologists and Medical Resonance Imaging Technologists. This involves, but is not limited to, mandatory continuing education and the investigation of ethical violations.

Persons with prior felony or misdemeanor convictions may be admitted to the program, but be prohibited by the ARRT from taking the examination. The ARRT will conduct a pre-application review to determine the impact of a conviction on eligibility.

Pre-application review forms may be requested from the ARRT Department of Regulatory Services at 651-687-0048.
