    Previous NBCOT Data
    2012: 85% pass rate for new NSCC graduates. National pass rate for all US OTA graduates was 81%

    2013 - 2015 Graduation Data
    2015: A total of 33 graduates - 92% graduation pass rate [students completing the program]
    2014: A total of 39 OTA graduates - 93% graduation rate [students completing the program]

    NOTE - 2014 data includes 3 graduation dates (Jan, May and November) and previous years' data includes only 2 graduation dates (Jan and May). NSCC changed January graduation date for accelerated cohort of students to November to occur immediately after program completion in October [rather than official graduation date being January of the following year]. In 2015, we once again have 2 graduation dates (May and November)
