Past Graduates

The Applied Behavior Analysis Program at Auburn University graduated its first class in August 2003. Each program graduate has fulfilled the requirements of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board to qualify to take the examination that will make them Board Certified Behavior Analysts. See previous student BACB exam pass rates here (On-campus VCS only, not affiliated with distance/campus VCS).

Thus far, students have completed the program within two years (five semesters including summer). With the current practicum hour requirements of 1,500 hours, students will complete all coursework and accrue all practicum hours required to take the BCBA exam across six semesters (two full years, including summer semesters). 

The majority of students have accepted job offers prior to graduation.
