MRI Program application deadline is Feb. 1 at KCC

Health care workers prepare a patient for an MRI.

The deadline to apply for Kellogg Community College’s Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Program beginning this summer is Saturday, Feb. 1.

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 is one of seven community college partners that offer MRI programs 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 a 90% completion rate for cohort students graduating in 2018
  • Boasts an 81% credentialing exam pass rate for students who took the ARRT exam between 2014 and 2018 and passed on their first attempt within six months of graduation
  • Produced a 100% job-placement rate for students who graduated in 2018

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.
