Mercy College of Ohio Expands Credit for Credentials
Mercy College recognizes students' professional success and advanced experience by waiving courses, saving students time and money in achieving their goals. Now both the Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging (BSMI) and Master of Health Administration (MHA) degrees have robust prior learning credit programs. "These fully online programs are designed for working students. The programs benefit from the experiences of our students, so we are happy to recognize the expertise they have earned outside of the classroom," says Ken Ryalls, PhD, Vice President of Academic Affairs.

Expanded credit for credentials for BSMI
Imaging technologists are surprised how close they are to the Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging degree with their transfer credit and imaging credentials. The recently increased amount of credit awarded for professional credentials makes an even larger difference. Individuals holding two or more primary credentials fulfill the program’s advanced imaging requirement!
Primary credentials can be earned through the ARRT, ARDMS, NMTCB, and CCI. Post-primary credentials from these organizations and others are also recognized with credit!
