Three Louisiana schools earn top marks for 100 percent graduation rates

Digital Media Institute at InterTech was among the 10 colleges and universities in Louisiana with the highest graduation rates, according to a Watchdog analysis of federal education data.

The school and two others recorded a 100 percent graduation rate.

The analysis is based on numbers from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), which is a unit of the U.S. Department of Education. The NCES provides the most current data on graduation rates, pricing, enrollment and accreditation at more than 7,000 post-secondary campuses. It is available through the NCES Web portal, College Navigator.

The analysis includes the graduation rates of students who began in 2010 at all four-year schools and fall 2013 at two-year schools reported to the U.S. Department of Education. Those time periods reflect 150 percent of the “normal time” for students to complete their academic programs.
