    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    34%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    National Louis University graduation rate is below the national average.

    34% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to National Louis 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 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.

      Overall Rating:

      I hate this school with a passion..The would suck every penny out and make you take unnecessary courses. Their reputation used to exceeds many educational standards to become a teacher in Illinois. From the advisory (Olga) and the head of the Education department (Deborah O'Conner); they are very bias. They are being more lenient towards Spanish students and make exceptions for them. I have statements from students and a paper trail from the administration as well. In addition, you can view the commencement from June 2017 and see the majority of students who finished the education program were Spanish.

      This is the most HORRID SCHOOL EVER. The Alumni needs to stop giving them money! The professors use profanity and they incite racial hatred toward one another. If you attempt to go to the head of the departments they will do nothing but defend their instructors, with MAYBE a slap on the wrist. The instructors have such disrespect they will admit they were admonished and continue with their bad behavior. If you do not agree with the professor's assessment of anything you will be publicly shamed and threatened with academic punishment. The instructors refuse to respond to your emails and the advisor's sign you up for classes that you are not able to take... WASTING YOUR MONEY! THIS UNIVERSITY HAS COME ALONG WAY FROM THE REPUTABLE TEACHING SCHOOL IT ONCE WAS. AWFUL!

      Please note National Louis University, and National Louis MOUNT University are not the same. They are different. National Louis MOUNT University is a fraud University gang that try to get your CV/resume details, your passport copy with its details and your credit card details over the phone or bank details to steal your money. All the links they gave me for payment are risky for payment as I was warned by the safe search mode of the antivirus. Every time I tried to call their numbers, they do not reply. They seem to call from suspicious numbers like phone cards. All their emails were suspicious and did not look like decent emails from an actual university. They called me relentlessly over the last 3 days by phone which doesn't look like a good behavior from a decent university.

      I think all the positive reviews are from people who work at the school. I have to say that their classes / curriculum are insane. The homework pressure is absolutely insane. The professors are so worthless i can count two who actually work and want students to succeed Dr. Jordan is great however I had a statistics prof Williams she is the worst, even my elementary teacher was better than her. She has an atittude and can never answer a question. She extended the class 3 more weeks " class was only 3 weeks as is". She made us submit all of the assignments with no help no grades no feedback, then waited till she decided to end the class to let people know they had an extention to re do their assignment- what a hoke!!! When i complained about her she decided to drop me from the class claiming I was failling !!!!! Mbut my grades were all A!!! She should not be in higher es a joke i wish I went elsewhere for my degreeducation she is too sensitive for adults ju
