CHIROPRACTIC LICENSING EXAM PERFORMANCE AND PROGRAM COMPLETION RATES

LICENSING EXAM PERFORMANCE

UWS students perform exceptionally well on licensure exams, including the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) exams specific to the United States. Successful completion of Parts I, II, III, and IV of the NBCE exams is necessary to become licensed in almost all U.S. licensing jurisdictions. International licensing requirements differ. 

The table below utilizes the reporting format required by the Council on Chiropractic Education® (CCE) for accreditation purposes. The table reports the number of students who graduated in each of the last four calendar years and how many passed either all parts of NBCE licensing exams or attained licensure within six months of graduation. 

NBCE Pass Rates 2018-2021

UWS exceeds the 80% threshold established by CCE Policy 56 for all four years reported. Graduates in 2020 and 2021 were impacted by COVID related delays that caused several students taking CCEB exams to get licensed more than 6 months after graduation.
