The graduation rate for the PTA program is for students starting from 9/1/2013 through 9/30/2014. The 2013 class started 23 students, 22 graduated. The 2014 class started 36 students and 32 graduated. However, one student from this class withdrew for personal reasons and CATE does not count this student. Therefore, 32 of 35 students graduated. 

The licensing rate for the PTA program is the ultimate pass rate for students attempting the test who graduated in 2015 and 2016.

The PTA placement rate is for students who graduated in 2015 and 2016, and who passed the licensing exam. Of the 54 graduates from source 5 above, 4 students did not take or did not pass the licensing exam. CAPTE does not count these 4 students as part of the graduate pool available for placement. Therefore, 49 of the 50 graduates were placed.
