PROFESSIONAL FAQS - Student Directory
Once you are logged in to eAccreditation, navigate to the ‘Students’ sub-tab. This will bring up all students and will show those students who are not yet matched to their BOC ID. For those students who need to be matched, click on their individual name and their student profile will pop up. You can then click on the ‘BOC Search’ tool, match the student to their BOC ID and click save. This will automatically populate the BOC Pass Rate Table.
