The University of Mobile has been named in “America’s 100 Best College Buys” for the fourth consecutive year by Institutional Research & Evaluation Inc.

The IR&E conducted its 22nd Annual National College Survey between April 1 and July 31, 2012. UMobile was selected for the top 100 list from among the 1,027 accredited U.S. colleges and universities surveyed.

The University of Mobile has enrolled 1,788 students in undergraduate and graduate programs in the College of Arts and Sciences; College of Christian Leadership; schools of business, Christian ministries, education, nursing, worship leadership, Center for Performing Arts/School of Music; Center for Adult Programs and graduate programs.

To be considered for the designation “America’s 100 Best College Buys,” an institution must be an accredited, four-year institution offering bachelor degrees and full residential facilities including residence halls and dining services. It must have had an entering freshman class in the fall of 2011 with a high school grade point average or SAT/ACT score equal to or above the national average for entering college freshmen.
