Graduation Rate

Loading...
59%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Loyola University New Orleans graduation rate is above the national average.

59% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Loyola University New Orleans 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 indicator 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.

Loyola University is great college! Is it a perfect college? No. I very much enjoyed my time there. It has a compact campus, but a large park across the street, which gives one an excellent balance between the urban and the rural! Also, while there I learned , that authentic Christianity is the free response to Jesus Christ. May I savor this for the rest of my life!
