Accreditation

Is the UAA DMS program accredited?

There are two types of accreditation for educational programs:  regional and programmic.  This program is regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, but does not have programmic accreditation at this time.  We are working towards obtaining programmatic accreditation from The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP), which accredits medical sonography programs.

Can I become a certified sonographer and find a job if I don't have programmic accreditation?

Yes, it is possible to become certified by both registering organizations (ARRT and ARDMS).
