Veterinary Technician National Exam
Information Required to be on Website

VTNE Pass Percentage for First 4 Years

  • Data regarding the success rate of our Veterinary Technology students on the Veterinary Technician National Exam is required to be placed on the website starting the 3rd year post accreditation and every year thereafter. 
  • In 2019 YCCC celebrated the graduation of our fourth cohort of outstanding veterinary technology students
  • It is important to note that the first year of posting this information inherently includes a dynamic that causes the score to appear lower than graduates may know it to beWe are asked to report the number of graduates through June of 2019 and the number of those who've successfully passed the exam.  Unfortunately for those that graduated in May of 2019, the first window to take the test isn't until July/August so their accomplishment is NOT recognized in these numbers.  That success won't be accounted for until this information is updated next year. 
  • Please take this dynamic into consideration when assessing this data.  The first time any college posts this data it will be skewed similarly and it will regulate after the second year of posting the data.

Some of our grads have not yet taken the exam.  This number doesn’t accurately reflect our success.  The others will be included going forward so it should bump the number on next year’s posting.
