IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT PASS RATE DATA:
The aggregate pass rate is calculated by the number of graduates taking the exam divided by the number of graduates who pass the exam. The first time pass rate and total pass rate may be different than what is received by programs from the BOC in the Institution Pass Report (received each May). The BOC pass rate on previous reports from the BOC was calculated without regard to student cohort size and was based on the BOC exam year (APRIL - FEBRUARY of each year).
