    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    65%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    La Salle University graduation rate is above the national average.

    65% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to La Salle University completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

    The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

    Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

      Great experience all around. I hope they bring back their Catholic identity bold and strong. Without it LaSalle is just another among many middle of the road schools. We don't need any more of those. As a university BE CATHOLIC OR BE GONE! As a graduate I can say it.

      I Graduated in 2014, School of Nursing, and I must say, I love this University, great education, intimate feel. the campus is beautiful, it has a secluded feel in an urban setting. As a African American student, I felt very welcomed and had the opportunity to participate in Travel study courses. That does not mean everyone or even all instructors were welcoming, but if issues arose, administration handled them swiftly and efficiently. Great experience!!! Wouldn't change it for the world.....

      I enjoyed my four years at La Salle. Small class size and dedicated professors. I felt that my money was well spent here. The school is not located in the safest neighborhood but I felt safe when I went here because there's always security driving around. They also have late night shuttle.
