The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) has released the “Uniform CPA Examination Candidate Performance Book” which features comprehensive statistical data from all four testing windows of the 2015 Uniform CPA Examination. This year, John Carroll University accountancy graduates ranked #14 nationally and #1 in Ohio in overall pass rates for first-time sitters for medium-sized programs (21 to 60 reported sitters). The JCU pass percentage was 70.6% compared to the national average of 55%. These results continue a multiyear string of national recognition. JCU has ranked nationally over the last three years and #1 in Ohio in 2014. “We are very pleased and proud of the performance of our accountancy graduates,” said Albert Nagy, Ph.D., Mulwick Scholar, professor of accountancy and chair of the Department of Accountancy in the Boler School of Business. “This recognition represents our program’s commitment to prepare our students for the CPA exam and their future careers.” NASBA serves as the forum for the nation’s Board of Accountancy which administers the Uniform CPA Examination, licenses more than 700,000 certified public accountants, and regulates the practice of public accountancy in the United States. NASBA began collecting data on CPA Examination candidates in 1982.
