+ Adler Graduate School has not historically surveyed its graduates for exam application and exam pass rates.  Further, individual test score data is incredibly hard to gather as it is not readily available to programs.  The data in this chart indicate the number of graduates eligible to sit for the AMFTRB national licensing exam, not how many applied.  The Pass Rate data was gathered using the Minnesota Board of Marriage and Family Therapy License Verification Tool and comparing AGS Graduates to individuals listed as LAMFT and LMFT. 

^ Licensure Completion Rate data was calculated using the MN Board of MFT License Verification Tool.  The data displayed reflects the number of graduates who have passed the AMFTRB national exam, completed the Board required Post-Graduate Supervision requirement, and who have also passed the State Licensing (Oral) exam. 

# The MN Board of MFT provides an annual report of the aggregate number of graduates from an institution who sat for, and passed the AMFTRB National Exam.  No data by individual name is available.  National exam data is not separated by MN Board of MFT by degree (MA vs. PDI) per the MN Board of MFT.  The MFT PD requested data from the Executive Director, but did not receive the report in time for this review.  In addition, the MN Board Executive Director stated data back to 2008 would not be accessible.  See email communication attached.
