The deadline to apply for Kellogg Community College’s Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Program beginning this summer has been extended to Tuesday, Feb. 12.
The original application deadline of Feb. 1 was extended after campus was closed for several days last week due to weather conditions.
KCC’s MRI Program prepares graduates for certification to become MRI technologists qualified to user powerful magnetic fields, radio waves and computers to create digital images to assist patient diagnosis in hospitals, physician offices and diagnostic imaging centers.
Completion of KCC’s MRI Program results in an Associate of Applied Science degree in Magnetic Resonance Imaging and makes graduates eligible to take the MRI certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), through which they can earn nationally recognized professional credentials.
KCC’s MRI Program is one of nine educational MRI programs offered as part of the Michigan Radiologic and Imaging Science (MiRIS) Consortium. The program consists of four academic semesters including two summer sessions, with traditional coursework offered in an online format and clinical education provided off campus at one of 25 clinical sites in Michigan.
The MiRIS MRI Program:
- Saw an 87 percent completion rate for cohort students graduating in 2017
- Boasts an 80 percent credentialing exam pass rate for students who took the ARRT exam between 2013 and 2017 and passed on their first attempt within six months of graduation
- Produced a 100 percent job-placement rate for students who graduated in 2017
Admission to KCC’s MRI Program is competitive, and just five students are admitted to the program during a limited open-application period each year.
