    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    60%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    Laurel Technical Institute graduation rate is above the national average.

    60% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Laurel Technical Institute 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 an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration 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 schools.

      I've had good and bad experiences here at LBI, just like any other place. I do have some really awesome teachers, I highly recommend trying to get into Mrs. Bellotti's, Mr. Tickner & Mrs. Hartley's classes. These teachers care about their students ( in my own personal opinion) they are very prepared and go over the material until each individual student gets it.
