1 Programs are only required to provide data on the past 10 years/cohort or since the program was initial accredited, whichever is shorter.

2 Graduation rates for program’s Advertised Length of Completion.  The Advertised Length of Completion is how long the program is designed to complete as written.  The RTS MFTC program can be completed in 2 or 3 years, so recent entering cohorts may have a low graduation rate until 3 year students complete the program.

3This is defined as the percentage of graduates from the cohort year listed that are employed within 3 years of their graduation utilizing skills learned in the COAMFTE accredited program.

4 RTS MFTC students can chose to take the national licensure exam for Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists or Licensed Professional Counselors (or both).  The pass rate for the AAMFT Regulatory Board exam (MFT), the National Counselor Exam (NCE), and the National Clinical Mental Health Counselor Exam (NCMHCE) reflect test results as reported by our graduates.  The column “MFT, NCE or NCMHCE Pass Rate” reflects the percentage of reporting graduates who passed at least one of the three national exams.
