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.

Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Southern University at New Orleans

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

A 1 star rating is way too much and considerably nice of me. Unorganized, unprofessional. You can tell the administration is only there to collect a paycheck. No one there seems to be on the same page. They will lose paper work and when you try to speak with a supervisor, you'll have to email and call daily and you MAY just get a response in 2 weeks. Save your money. You'd do better going to an online school then to deal with these folks.
