    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    19%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    Louisburg College graduation rate is below the national average.

    19% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Louisburg 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 a huge number of students. This index 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.

      Not the best collage I've visited. Parking lots need replacement. The circle needs repair.. Buildings need repair. Not the best security set up. Lack of signage. Needs a large amount of planning and repair.

      Spent 2 years at this school and in town, wonderful little town to be submersed in!

      For a school who's tuition costs over $30,000 dollars to attend, it is a complete waste of money. From many staff members being constantly disorganized and numerous accounts of problems, this school is not all the stress that comes with it. They claim to have many advantages that other schools do not have access to which is completely false and misleading. At the beginning of the year when I started, I was excited to go to this school. Once the year actually began, more unnecessary problems became present. I've been dealing with mold on the ceiling in a dorm room, constant obstacles in order to just take specific classes that I need in order to transfer, and constant mistakes on their part. Not to mention that getting a loan after one has been drawn back is nearly impossible. I wish that I would have taken classes at Wake Tech rather than at this school. It's a waste of money, time, and well-being. By all means though, if you love to have numerous problems and pay an obscene amount for them, especially for a 2 year college, go for it.

      SCAM!!! Stay away from this school. Everything will seem fine until after you leave the school, there will be fees and fines that they cannot explain. Sometimes $12 to $9,000. They never returned my housing deposit, and said that I owe money for tuition ( this semester) even though I don't even attend the school anymore. They will figure out anyway to get more money. After I recieved scholarships worth $29,000 and financial aid covered the rest I was put on a payment plan of $500 a month to finish paying for the school. There is no set tuition cost, it changes all the time. THIS SCHOOL IS A SCAM!
