Delgado Community College’s graduate rate is 5 percent.
It was one of Louisiana’s two-year colleges recording the lowest graduation rates in the state, according to a Watchdog analysis of federal education data.
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 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.
