Reported licensure rates are based on graduates receiving a passing score on the NPTE-PTA exam administered by the FSBPT after graduation. First-time pass rates are based on a cohort’s performance on their first attempt at the exam, and the ultimate pass rate is the finalized pass rate for the cohort.

*The 2020/2021 cohort was admitted to the Program in the Spring 2020 prior to the worldwide shut down due to the COVID-19  pandemic, and completed  the program in an adapted hybrid format.*

Graduation rates and licensure pass rates are updated as information is received.  For more information contact Jackie Underwood.
