University of Montevallo scores high ranks in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges

According to the newly released rankings by U.S. News & World Report, the University of Montevallo now ranks as the 13th best public university in the South in its division, moving up two spots from last year.

“We were very pleased to see we again rose two spots in the U.S. News and World Report rankings. This is recognition of the hard work and dedication of our faculty and staff to the important enterprise of teaching and learning,” said UM President, Dr. John W. Stewart III.

Each year, UM is compared alongside several schools across 12 states. Despite the competition, UM manages impressive accolades in the publication’s annual evaluations.

“Montevallo continues to maintain our academic integrity, even in the face of formidable competition. This recognition is reflective of our commitment to the wonderful students we serve,” said Stewart.

Montevallo is the 37th Best Regional University in the South, marking it as the highest ranked public regional-level university in the state.

Additionally, UM’s military-friendly campus places it as the 26th best college for veterans in the South.
