COAMFTE Student Achievement Data

The Falk College Marriage & Family Therapy program is accredited by the The Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) which is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). As a part of our accreditation, we are asked to provide consistent information about academic quality and student achievement to foster continuing public awareness, confidence, and investment. We do this in an annual report on student achievement. Below are charts outlining our annual graduation rates, exam pass rates, and licensure rates.
