College of Optometry Ranks Among the Top in Latest National Board Exam "Ultimate Pass Rate"

The Pacific University College of Optometry once again ranks among the top optometry colleges and schools throughout the country for competency exam pass rate, according to National Board of Examiners in Optometry.

The NBEO's Institutional Yearly Performance Report released earlier this week shows lists Pacific's "Ultimate Pass Rate" for the three-part certification exam to be 97.75 percent, ranking the college No. 3 nationally. The Ultimate Pass Rate is the percentage of students from a college or school that passed all three parts of the exam between Oct. 2016 and Sept. 2017.

NBEO examinations are universally accepted for optometric licensure in the United States and some international jurisdictions.
