North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) pass rate for first-time takers:

The North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination’s (NAPLEX) threshold of acceptability changes annually and is based on the overall first-time pass rate for Xavier graduates being within two standard deviations of the national average. This benchmark is used by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, the accrediting body of the Pharmacy program. This Table provides data since 2012 of first-time pass rates of the NAPLEX and indicates that Xavier has successfully reached this benchmark each year.

Course Completion Rate

Course completion rates are an important measure to determine the achievement of students. The faculty members in each academic department or division in both the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Pharmacy have identified specific courses for each academic program that they have determined to measure student achievement in their discipline. Since these courses are predominantly at the upper level, it was decided that a pass rate of 90% would be used for undergraduate courses and 95% would be used for graduate and pharmacy courses. It should be noted that a course is considered “completed” only if a student received an A, B, C, or P in the course. Course Completion Rates for the graduating classes are listed below:

2012 - 2013 99.6%
2013 - 2014  98.3%
2014 - 2015  99.4%
2015 - 2016 99.5%
2016 - 2017  100%
