    Graduation Rate

    47%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    University of Louisiana at Lafayette graduation rate is below the national average.

    47% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to University of Louisiana at Lafayette 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 institutions.

      I graduated in 1994 with a BS in General Business. Moved to Lafayette in 1959. Transferred to Metarie, Louisiana in 1985. Lived there until June 1995 when I retired and moved to Cypress, Texas for 4 years and then married and moved Salem, Oregon. Returned to Lafayette after Cancer Surgery in 2013. Of all the places I have lived, at age 85, this is Home and where my Spirit is most happy and content.

      I came here straight from high school. I had a high ACT score, and had fallen in love with the school, so I came here from out-of-state. I joined an Living-Learning Community, but because so few people are in them, I was matched up with a horrible roommate. She constantly yelled at me for trivial things. It got so bad that a month in, the Area Coordinator for Coronna AND two other RAs got involved during an intervention. They set up weekly meetings between me, my roommate, and our RA. It was supposed to help, but ultimately the behavior did not change AND the RA stopped showing up to the meetings. I then rearranged my room so the bed was in the middle (still in my half) and didn't leave my room, failed my classes, and the RA did nothing. I'd called the RA hotline numerous times, but no one documented anything so my case was empty. Needless to say I left after that semester, and someone told me in the housing office that because of the abusive roommate, I would get my security deposit back. Nope, I got a bill for $250 that I wouldn't have received in the first place had the Residential Life staff been competent at their jobs.EDIT: Also, if you live in the newer rooms, buy cleaning supplies because the maids that are supposed to clean, don't.

      Get ready to work your butt off if you plan on going into the engineering (some great research opportunities**), nursing, or sciences colleges. Transportation services is a real pain. New union is beautiful.. the campus, overall, is beautiful. Size of school is big enough, yet small enough - perfect, in my opinion. Scheduling classes my first 2 years was a pain - REALLY do your research on the professors you choose, sometimes it's worth waiting an extra semester to get that good professor. Lafayette is truly a diamond in the rough; great culture, friendly people, local music (festival international!)
