Ranked No. 4 among public liberal arts colleges, Virginia Military Institute has retained its high placing among the nation’s best colleges, according to college rankings recently released by U.S News & World Report.
Among public liberal arts colleges, the Institute ranked fourth only behind the United States Naval Academy, the United States Military Academy, and the United States Air Force Academy. VMI was ranked No. 70 overall among more than 200 national liberal arts colleges.
Unlike many other publications that issue college rankings, U.S. News also ranks certain programs found at many colleges and universities. This year, VMI ranked 21st out of 230 institutions nationwide that have an accredited engineering program but do not grant a doctoral degree. The Institute’s undergraduate computer science program was also recognized in this year’s rankings.
VMI is also included on Washington Monthly’s “Best Bang for the Buck” list, which is meant to guide students from low- and middle-income families toward schools that will help them earn marketable degrees at affordable prices.
The application for the Corps of Cadets is open for the next academic year, and the admissions staff is available for any questions along the way.
