Graduation Rate

Loading...
80%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Tulane University of Louisiana graduation rate is above the national average.

80% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Tulane University of Louisiana 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 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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Tulane University of Louisiana

Overall Rating:

Even if you are not interested in attending Tulane University, I strongly recommend visiting it. The tour of the school gives you some knowledge about how the young adults of New Orleans take part in the community and how much of the things you are touring are actually run by students. My family and I were not expecting to actually be considering Tulane for college, but we all fell in love with the campus instantly. The guides were very knowledgable about the school and also about the community of New Orleans. It was nice to hear the perspective of a younger person instead of an adult who grew up in New Orleans about what the best parts of the city are. Touring Tulane is a MUST for anyone visiting New Orleans

Everyone was really good except for Dr Jiang. She was very unprofessional, she need to be more compassionate, understanding, and courteous to the patients' family. I chose not to allow them to put a feeding tube in my father because he is still capable and able to eat, she was very unhappy with my decision and retaliated with an unpleasant attitude and refused transportation. I had to go talk to security and and then speak with the nurse to get transportation to come and take my dad down to the car. One bad apple can spoil everything. Some doctors should not be doctors and need a new profession.

This is the second time they've sent me an invitation and this one was different, but the thing is the invite that they sent was not for me. It had my name at top (Rachael) but in the message it was for some Nicolle person. It just goes to show this school ISN'T the one. I make really good grades and for them to just copy and paste is just making the student feel like literal dust.UPDATE (WITH MORE PICTURES) 9/25/17 Here they go again. They keep trying to get me to look at their school, but NO! It is TRASH. Just stop and it's too expensive anyway. They put my name on there this time and the package is bigger. If I went to this school I would be nothing but a school ID NUMBER ONLY even with all my hard work.

Great facility and doctors. Dr. Savoie is patient and takes time to make sure that his patients fully understand their disease process and the proposed treatment and outcomes. He has a national reputation as one of the best in his field. The office is efficient and runs on time with flexible office hours. Wonderful, efficient and friendly staff.
