Graduation Rate

Loading...
47%
BELOW AVERAGE

Lawrence Technological University graduation rate is below the national average.

47% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Lawrence Technological 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 an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into account 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.

I laugh how half these reviews are not even students... these are all paid reviews 😂😂 International student (3.8gpa) : Yes. You will get a job if you attend. If you would like to work in Michigan that is... You will also have to pay for classes that force you to learn about the American gvt structure (absolutely pointless) as every elective is biased towards domestic students. There are random fees that are never discussed. Wi-Fi is horrible (somewhat decent after 8pm). Gym is always used by athletic teams with poor scheduling. Food on campus is a joke (student government has been fighting to switch provider for years already) There is no communication between the many departments, if you are architecture and want to work countless hours and nights in a row. Have fun balancing these other $$$ electives because "my class is the most important because it took me many years to be able to teach so if you show less emphasis in my class, I will show less compassion towards your grade" - example of professors logic.TL:dr LTU will get you a job, their curriculum needs improvement. Facilities are out dated. Hella expensive even for a private institution that gives scholarship, they'll slap you with unregulated fees.Cheers
