Graduation Rate

Loading...
68%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College graduation rate is above the national average.

68% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical 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 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 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 schools.

A month ago, I was travelling towards New Orleans.It was my first trip to the place and even the state. I am from Texas ! On my way in Baton Rouge, I took a wrong exit and I ended up visiting this University! I was so amazed by their environment up there. Lots of trees inside the campus, and the campus buildings looked so classic, more like a Cali style . I loved their design of the rooftops. They have a small river that runs between the university and you will see a lot of people waling on its sides. I met a person there and I asked him for direction to their main library. He walked me all the way up there and told me lots about the college ! He was really kind and helpful. Their football stadium looked big and nice ! Great environment for study ! Classic ! And New Orleans is like half an hour drive from there as well ! Beautiful Campus, Beautiful People
