    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    32%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    Southern University and A & M College graduation rate is below the national average.

    32% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Southern University and A & M 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 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 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 institutions.

      Overall Rating:

      I'm so graduate from Southern University. With out the education I received from the university I would not be where I am today. The Army ROTC program was the best and now I'm retired and working in the cyber security environment. The only thing I did not do while attending the school was pledge Delta Sigma Theta. It's in my heart and will complete this journey in life.

      Overall Rating:

      Honestly I've seen a lot of bad commentary about this school and I would just like to address the fact that this is like any other University where you must get involved. There is a lot to do and many activities SGA and other organizations host throughout the year. Like any other HBCU the workers do run on CP time so you must be persistent and serious about the work you need to get out the way and most professors are willing to help if you look like you're trying. I sadly had to leave me first semester of Freshman year during the Fall of 2016 but I proudly wear my material any chance I get. Don't look into this school for negative reasons and give negative reviews back.
