Graduation Rate

Loading...
62%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Loras College graduation rate is above the national average.

62% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Loras College 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 picture. 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.

In one word "growth." if you are looking for a school that has been designed to make sure you grow, from top to bottom, this is it. In no other school will you be challenged to expand, learn, appreciate, express curiosity, fail, fail, and fail again, than at Loras College. This is what makes the experience so amazing. You'll be well served should you attend. And well served should you decide to stop by campus and visit - it's gorgeous!

Overall Rating:

Probably wouldn't be your first choice but don't let its size deter you. This hilly campus offers many outlets and I had always found it comforting during my study hours slaving away in the Library.During training, their tiny but effective wellness center had everything I needed to keep strong. It too was not overrun by users and everything stayed in decent shape.Then it was always nice on the random occasion to grab a bite to eat in the cafeteria. Food was far from great but it's convenient and warm.And finally, Loras as plenty of areas to release your creativity. He Visitation is not only living quarters for some but also a music and fine art location. Hoffman contains an impressive amount of video and audio equipment alone with a up to date lab that can accommodate all of your editing needs.
