Based on Academic Quality, Affordability, Student Experience

Best Colleges in Alabama BadgeMOBILE, Ala. – University of Mobile is one of the top two four-year colleges in Alabama, according to the 2016 Best Colleges ranking for campus programs by BestColleges.com.

The rankings measure a school’s academic quality, affordability and student experience, according to BestColleges.com, which compiles user-friendly guides and rankings to help students find the school that best meets their needs and educational goals.

UMobile ranked second in Alabama out of over 80 collegiate institutions in the state for its on-campus program, and fifth in Alabama for its online program.

Regarding the on-campus program, BestColleges.com noted, “UMobile is acclaimed as one of Alabama’s best colleges not only for its affordable cost, but also for its wide variety of academic offerings and 14:1 student-faculty ratio. As a private Baptist institution, strong Christian values are reflected in the lifestyle and curriculum of the university.”

The online ranking cited the university’s “unique distance education program” that offers degree programs fully online, with options for on-campus coursework as well. Typical online courses last eight weeks.

The 2016 rankings are based on statistics from the 2013-2014 academic year. Currently, UMobile’s student-faculty ratio is 13:1, a ratio that means students have small classes and easy access to professors.
