National Exam Pass Rate
The Athletic Training Program of the University of Arkansas is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.
In summer 2019, the athletic training faculty completed the CAATE accreditation self-study in preparation for a March 2020 site visit for re-accreditation. During fall semester 2019 we will be restructuring the curriculum to meet the new CAATE standards by fall 2020. This initiative will require changing course content and implementing a new clinical immersion experience. The new accreditation standards include some new and exciting additions to the excellent clinical experiences current students have.
The tables below were produced by CAATE.
BOC Pass Rate Table
Once a BOC ID is matched to each student in a cohort, and the student has taken the BOC exam, this table will populate from data directly from the BOC. The aggregate pass rate is calculated by the number of graduates taking the exam divided by the number of graduates who pass the exam. Important note: The first time pass rate and total pass rate may be different than what was previously received by programs from the BOC in the Institution Pass Report . The BOC pass rate on previous reports from the BOC was calculated without regard to student cohort and was based on the BOC exam year (April-February of each year). BOC pass rate data posted on the program's website MUST match the data on this table.
Programs must meet or exceed a three-year aggregate of 70 percent first-time pass rate on the BOC exam.

Student Graduation and Employment/Placement Rate
Graduation rate (taken from United States Department of Education): Measures the progress of students who began their studies as full-time, first-time degree- or certificate seeking students by showing the percentage of these students who complete their degree or certificate within a 150% of "normal time" for completing the program in which they are enrolled.
Graduation rate is calculated as: the sum of students with a Graduated status divided by the total number of students in the cohort (excluding students with the status of leave of absence (medical) or deceased).
|Number of students graduation from program||15||12||17||14||15||21||18||54|
|Student Graduation Rate (%)||100||100||100||100||100||100||95||98|
Student Employment/Placement Rate
Graduate employment/placement rate: Percentage of students within 6 months of graduation who have obtained positions in the following categories: employed as an athletic trainer, employed as other, and not employed.
