Program Outcomes

Public Availability of Outcomes Information

While CAPTE (accrediting body) has always had an expectation (in the Evaluative Criteria) that programs provide current and prospective students with information about program outcomes, the CHEA standard is that we have implemented criteria or policies/procedures that require student outcomes information to be available to the public. To meet this expectation, CAPTE adopted the following:

8.19 Information Required to be Made Public

(b) Student Outcomes

(1) The program must provide the public with accurate, reliable and easily available information about student outcomes, preferably via the program's webpage. At a minimum, this information must include graduation rate, ultimate licensure exam pass rate, and employment rate, over the most recent three years, and must be updated annually at the time that the program submits its Annual Accreditation Report. These rates are as follows:

(i) Graduation rate: Per the formula required in the Annual Accreditation Report the rates are as follows:

Traditional Program

  1. Class Year 2014 94.7%
  2. Class Year 2013 90.0%
  3. Class Year 2012 81.2%

Expansion Program

  1. Class Year 2014 88.9%
  2. Class Year 2013 86.7%
  3. Class Year 2012 88.2%

(ii) Licensure examination pass rate: This information is consistent with the information published by the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy

  1. Ultimate pass rate for the graduating 2012, 2013, 2014 Traditional & Expansion cohorts 100%
    Pass Rate for the 2014 Traditional Program 100%
    Pass Rate for the 2014 Expansion Program 100%

(iii) Employment rate: % of graduates who were employed as PTs or PTAs within six months of passing the licensure examination (Traditional & Expansion Programs combined)

  1. Graduating Cohorts of 2014 100%
  2. Graduating Cohorts of 2013 100%
  3. Graduating Cohorts of 2012 100%
