    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    37%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    Southeastern Louisiana University graduation rate is below the national average.

    37% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Southeastern Louisiana 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 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.

      I hate southeastern, to be very honest they hired a English person who is not even a professor he was only there for one semester than left! I am trying to switch from this school as fast as possible I'm only a freshman and I was only there for the fall semester and I'm now leaving.... Oh and the freshman SE 101 class I had valverde do not take her cause she may seem nice but she seems to act sarcastic

      Overall Rating:

      For the price, the university is great. The problem that I have though would the there seems to be no recourse if teachers do not attend their class. I had an instructor at the beginning of the semester have to cancel multiple days due to family matter. I am not suggesting she not be able to tend to the family, but rather there seems to be no network of support for the instructors to easily acquire substitutes for their classes. The students and teach both hurt from this extremely.

      Place is a joke, go to Lsu or UL. Administration is the worst here

      Overall Rating:

      The professors are awesome and really care about you. Ofcourse is college, meaning is expensive. The students are great to be around, but the parking arrangements are horrible especially with the bus schedule that bring students around campus. It's very hard to make it to class on time

      Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

      Overall Rating:

      I have been here 3 semesters now, I love it so far. However, I CAN'T STAND their parking arrangements! I am not sure if it's normal, but I cannot find student parking within a mile of my class, ever. My first semester I was 6-9 months pregnant. They wrote me a violation every single day I was parked "near" the campus .... because there was hardly any student parking. Having a high-risk pregnancy, I couldn't make the haul with books and art materials every day. They even put a boot on my vehicle, they knew my condition and didn't care, even with a verified request from the doctor asking for leniency. However, I know that's not merit enough to give a bad review, because it is a college not a Walmart. So I give 5 stars because I love all of my instructors/professors. I like the campus (smaller than LSU!). I just love everything else about the school.
