University of Montevallo recognized by U.S. News & World Report

MONTEVALLO – U.S. News & World Report has released its 2015 “America’s Best Colleges” rankings, and the University of Montevallo is once again ranked as the No. 1 public master’s-level university in Alabama, a distinction it has held each year since 2008.

According to the 2015 rankings, released Sept. 9, 2014, Montevallo is again listed as the 15th best public university in the South in its division and 37th overall in the South, up 22 spots from its 2007 ranking. Schools in 12 states make up the South geographic region.

Montevallo earned high marks for academic reputation, freshman retention rate, graduation rate, entering freshmen test scores, small class sizes and low student-faculty ratio.

“We are proud that Montevallo has again been recognized by U.S News & World Report as one of the top universities in the Southeast,” stated UM President John W. Stewart III. “It is especially gratifying to be recognized for the intimate, teaching-centered experience we offer. This is one measure of validation that our precious mission has endured and remains strong. Our faculty and staff work hard every day to keep tuition costs within reach of our families and to ensure that a Montevallo education remains as valuable, timely and substantive as ever.”
