CAB89% of Emperor’s College grads that took the California Acupuncture License Exam for the first time last March passed, the highest pass rate of any college in the United States represented by more than two students.

A total of 322 people from around the U.S. took the exam for the first time on March 16, 2016, 229 of whom passed, for a 71% pass rate. The next exam will be held August 10, 2016 in Sacramento, CA.

Emperor’s College grads posted the second highest pass rate in 2015, second only to the Academy of Chinese Culture & Health Sciences whose grads at the 2016 exam had a pass rate of 71%. “The California Acupuncture Licensing Exam is recognized as the most difficult licensing exam in the country and that our grads had the highest pass rate of any of the colleges that sent more than a couple of graduates to the March exam is a testament to the hard work of the students and the efforts at the college to continually improve and create the best learning experience possible for the students,” notes Jacques MoraMaro, the Emperor’s College Academic Dean.
