Academic Programs

The University of Louisville confers undergraduate, graduate, and first professional degrees through the programs offered by its twelve colleges and schools. The academic program inventory provides a listing of all degree programs and credentials offered by UofL

Commitment to Student Achievement

UofL’s commitment to student achievement is evidenced by processes that have been developed and implemented to collect, analyze, and use data from the entire academic lifespan of students at the university.  From pre-enrollment variables to feedback collected from alumni, UofL uses student data deliberately to measure student achievement, set student achievement metric goals, and gauge the success of student-focused/intentional programming when compared to similar institutions.

.

First-time Freshman

The institutional focus on our entering student profile has been one of the key factors in the increase in our fall-to-fall retention and 6-year graduation rates.  The table below details a subset of the first-time student profile for fall 2010 through fall 2015.

 

Retention and 6-year Graduation Rates

UofL’s 1988 entering Graduation Rate Survey cohort had a 6-year graduation rate of 29.8%.  The entering 2008 GRS cohort had a 6-year graduation rate of 53.6%. The 6-year graduation rate for the 2009 GRS cohort is 52.9%. Therefore, UofL’s 6-year graduation rate has increased by 23.8 percentage points over the past 20 years.  The university remains committed to increasing the 6-year graduation rate to those rates achieved by other doctoral/research institutions as evidenced by the established metric of the 2020 Plan.

 

Degrees Conferred

In addition to increasing the 6-year graduation rate, UofL has continued to grow the number of undergraduate degrees which remains a continued priority in keeping with the university’s mission of being a metropolitan research institution and also the Louisville metro region’s 55K initiative.

 

Job Placement Data

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness (IE) administers three surveys related to undergraduate and graduate students’ school and employment plans after graduation:

Undergraduate Students: Post-Graduation Education and Employment - 2013-2014

Undergraduate Students: Post-Graduation Education and Employment - 2014-2015

Undergraduate Students: Post-Graduation Education and Employment - 2015-2016

Graduate Students: Post-Graduation Education and Employment - 2013-2014

Graduate Students: Post-Graduation Education and Employment - 2014-2015

Graduate Students: Post-Graduation Education and Employment - 2015-2016


National and State Licensing Examinations

UofL gathers student pass rate data for discipline-based licensure examinations in audiology, dentistry, education, engineering, law, medicine, nursing, social work, and speech pathology.  The collection of licensure and certification information is decentralized and thereby becomes the primary responsibility of the academic unit to assess student performance.  Pass rate data are used as part of the academic units’ internal strategic planning and discipline-specific accreditation reporting.  The next two tables detail the past three years of UofL, national, and state pass rates for academic units.  The availability of state and national pass rates is reported by each academic unit.  UofL students perform at or above the state pass rate and above national pass rates

Consortial Agreements

Consortial Agreements – are contracts that allow academic programs to offer courses/programs off-site, bring in students from other institutions (dual/joint degrees), and students to perform clinical work at off-site locations. These agreements can include CPE, the military, educational institutions and private entities that wish to interact with the university to accomplish a specific agreed upon goal. The list of consorital agreements provides links to each unit’s website with more information about the program offering.

 UofL Consortial Agreements (as of August 2016)
