    Graduation Rate

    40%
    BELOW AVERAGE

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

    40% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to University of Louisiana at Monroe 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 take into consideration 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:

      Terrible school. Lousy, racist, hateful professors. Racist, uneducated, middle class white students. No one at this institution cares about learning. Rather, they just want to party and act stupid on mom and dad's money for four years. Screw this school and the conservative hicks that attend it. You'd do better getting a trade. It's just as enriching, which is to say not at all.

      I attended ULM during the last millennium and can say this has never been what you might expect—a lightweight redneck college in the Mississippi Delta. Grading was tough, no easy A’s or B’s. I suspect it was easier to make good grades at bigger name schools. I say this not to dis’ ULM but to say it was demanding. You had to master the material. Six years after I graduated, I was accepted to LSU law school (a top 100 law school) on my first try at any law school. I took the LSAT once with no prep. I hope this helps. I love ULM.

      If you're looking for a school which focuses more on athletics than science, this might be the place for you. Fifty years of work building a phenomenal collection of natural history is being tossed out so a handful of students have a place to practice running. Shameful.
