OT Program Outcomes

National Board of Certification NBCOT Pass Rate

In accordance with ACOTE standard A.4.2, NBCOT data are now calculated and reported by calendar year for new graduates passing the exam within one year of graduation.

NBCOT calculates pass rate by calendar year rather than by graduating class. Therefore 2019 data represents students who passed the exam within one year of graduation for calendar year January 1 through December 31, 2019. While most students represented by the 2019 NBCOT data were 2019 graduates it may also represent a few students from the class of 2018.

For calendar year 2019, January 1 through December 31, Husson University new graduates taking the NBCOT exam within one year of graduation had a pass rate of 95%.
