LSU's graduation rate at all-time high
BATON ROUGE - For the third year in a row LSU has notched an all-time high graduation rate, with 69.1 percent of students walking away from the university with a degree in hand - the highest graduation rate out of all public universities in the state.
LSU saw 66.7 percent of eligible students graduate the prior year.
The rates are determined by calculating the number of first-time freshmen who complete school within six continuous years at the same institution.
It means that LSU had its most successful period ever in enrolling students in 2007 and shepherding them through to graduation by the end of 2013.
LSU's numbers were calculated internally and won't be official until they are validated by the State Board of Regents.
