The 2018 McNeese State University radiologic sciences graduates had a 100 percent passage rate on the national certification examination in radiography administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technology.

Since the radiologic sciences program’s inception in 1978, McNeese students have held a 98.4 percent first-time passage rate on the national certification exam, according to Greg Bradley, radiologic sciences program director and head of the department of radiologic and medical laboratory sciences.
