Louisiana’s two-year colleges with the highest graduation rates

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

The school 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 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.
