CAATE Accreditation Status and BOC Pass Rates

To satisfy the Commission on the Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) requirement, this page offers the annual and 3-year aggregate results of the Board of Certification (BOC) Exam Pass Rates for students graduating from Northern Illinois University's Athletic Training program.

The program was placed on probation effective February 24, 2017 by the CAATE (6850 Austin Center Blvd. Suite 100, Austin, TX 78731-3101). We are admitting students and they are eligible to sit for the BOC Exam.
