CC Best Colleges Universities South

The Consensus Best Colleges and Universities in the South applies the College Consensus method to a ranking of colleges that provide top-tier higher education in the South. College Consensus uses a combination of published rankings and verified student reviews to generate an aggregate ranking of the best the South has to offer. Prospective Southern college students need to look no further for the full picture of the South’s higher education opportunities.

How Do We Rank the Best Colleges in the South?

College Consensus rankings combine the results of the most respected college ranking systems with the averaged ratings of thousands of real student reviews from around the web to create a unique college meta-ranking. This approach offers a comprehensive and holistic perspective missing from other college rankings. Visit our about page for information on which rankings and review sites were included in this year’s consensus rankings.

The Best Colleges & Universities in the South category is limited to schools in AL, AR, FL, GA, KY, LA, MS, NC, OK, SC, TN, TX, VA, and WV.

What’s Different About the College Consensus Ranking?

College Consensus takes a higher perspective on the college ranking landscape, leveling the playing field. Every ranking has its focus, and every student review has its bias, but in College Consensus rankings, every voice gets its due. That means that the much-loved but less prominent regional college has as much opportunity to shine as the most famous research university. For the Best Colleges and Universities in the South, it means the schools that make a difference in students’ lives get the recognition they deserve.

The Consensus Best Colleges and Universities South are listed in descending order by their Consensus score.
