Students who satisfactorily complete all the program requirements will be awarded the Master of Science in Magnetic Resonance Imaging from the University of Mississippi and will be eligible to take the examination for certification offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Candidates must have an overall grade point average (GPA) in UMMC coursework of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale.
Most states require licensure in order to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the ARRT certification examinations. Be advised that a felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the ARRT certification examination or attain state licensure.
