Search Discrepancy between FREIDA/program website data?

While I was doing my research about some programs, FREIDA had a minimum Step 1 score, but when I went to the program's website, it had another score. Which one should I take as accurate? I know that the obvious thing is to take the score on the website as real, but, sometimes, those websites haven't been updated in a long time, and I think that FRIEDA is updated due to the nature of their services; besides, they state when certain program was last updated.

Any thoughts?

My suggestion in such case, just contact the program coordinator for more info. about the applicant criteria.
