Our mission at The Best Colleges is to help you find the best college or university for your particular interests and needs. Whether you’re looking for a traditional campus-based college or university or a top online school, we can help. On this page you will find a list of top-ranked liberal arts colleges and research universities, as well as accredited online schools. You can search through the list to find campuses in your state or online programs that can be accessed from anywhere.
Traditional campus-based schools are listed alphabetically by state. Online schools are listed together in alphabetical order under the “Choosing an Online School” link. Clicking on the school name will take you to the school’s profile page with information on the school’s history, mission, degree programs, tuition, financial aid, admissions and more.
If you are interested in finding out which schools offer the best degree programs in the subjects you’re interested in, check out our rankings page where you will find a list of our traditional and online college rankings highlighting the best schools and the top undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Our list of top schools and our rankings of the best online colleges and degree programs are constantly expanding and are updated regularly, so be sure to check back frequently!
Here is a regularly updated list of the colleges and universities currently in our database.
