Benchmarks for Success

Benchmarks for Success

Logan University is truly committed to the success of each of its students academically, clinically and professionally.


Logan's small student/faculty ratio, nationally prominent faculty, state-of-the-art educational facilities and curricular emphasis on practice management are evidence of its ongoing commitment to excellence in professional chiropractic education. Logan’s achievement in ensuring the success of its students and alumni can also be measured through the compilation of information from various indicators, including course grades, NBCE scores, graduation rates and student loan default statistics.

Logan’s low student loan default rate is 2.3 percent, considerably better than the national rate of 11.8 percent and the 11.3 percent average for Missouri schools. It reflects highly on our graduates’ success following completion of the program and willingness to repay their financial obligations.

    Entering Class GPA

    Logan seeks to enroll highly motivated and capable students. The average entering cumulative GPA for matriculating students as of September 2016 was 3.25 on a 4.0 scale and 3.49 for the 90-Hour GPA on a 4.0 scale.  While entering GPA is only one element in determining student success, it does have a correlative value in predicating performance in the Doctor of Chiropractic program.


    NBCE National Board Test Results

    The table and the links below illustrate performance on NBCE scores for the most recent administrations.

    NBCE Licensing Exam Completion Rates

    The results below show the percentage of students who attempted all four parts of the NBCE exams within six months post-graduation. Students at Logan are not required to take all parts of the NBCE exams. Those students who plan on practicing in countries or jurisdictions that do not require or recognize all parts of NBCE exams may elect to take only some of the examinations. The data below shows pass rates between 93% and 97% for those Logan students taking all four parts of the NBCE exams. Congratulations Logan graduates on a job well done!
