Colleges in Louisiana: Universities, Trade and Technical Schools

Colleges in Louisiana

Louisiana has almost 150 colleges and post secondary schools, but a relatively low number of students given the large number of schools (just over 200,000). This might be due to the fact that nearly 40 of these schools have fewer than 100 students. Most of those are beauty schools and cosmetology schools.

Louisiana has the smallest percentage of its population enrolled in colleges and post secondary schools of any U.S. state, with just over 4.5 percent. Louisiana is only one of 12 states with more than 60 public schools, and is fourth in the country for percent of students going to public schools (nearly 90%). Louisiana also has a fair number of for-profit schools in the state, with over 45% of its schools being for-profit institutions.

Louisiana has a number of larger colleges, including Louisiana State University (LSU), Tulane University of Louisiana, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Southeastern Louisiana University, Louisiana Tech University, and Southern University and A & M College. Tulane and LSU are extremely well known out side of Louisiana, and are highly respected schools.
