    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    40%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    Nicholls State University graduation rate is below the national average.

    40% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Nicholls State 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 a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration 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 perception. 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.

      I loved my time there as a Fine Arts student. The staff in my discipline were beyond excellent. Its tuition is reasonable. It is a safe and beautiful campus surrounded by sugar cane fields and placed along the banks of Bayou Lafourche. If you are even remotely interested in attending, take a tour, I can not sing its praises enough. There are many areas of study here and plenty of activities for student credit and continuing education courses for the community and students alike.
