Auburn University at Montgomery earned a No. 29 ranking among the top public regional universities in the South in U.S. News & World Report’s newly released 2024 Best Colleges survey.
It marked AUM’s best placement among its regional public university peers in the annual Best Colleges rankings. AUM ranked 38th among “Best Value Schools” in the South and placed No. 63 overall among all regional universities in the South for overall quality.
“We’re honored to be recognized among the most outstanding public universities in the South,” AUM Chancellor Carl A. Stockton said. “While we do not chase rankings, these results reflect the commitment and care our faculty and staff demonstrate daily in serving our students and helping them reach their full potential.”
AUM’s undergraduate business and nursing programs each earned rankings in their respective categories.
AUM improved on its 2022-2023 rankings among all regional institutions (67th) and public universities in the South (30 th).
This year, AUM also earned recognition from Princeton Review as one of the best universities in the South and earned the Montgomery Advertiser’s “Best of the Best” voting as the top university in Alabama’s River Region for the sixth consecutive year. Viqtory Media ranked AUM No. 9 nationally among small public universities on its 2023-2024 “Military Friendly Schools” list – the sixth consecutive year that AUM has earned recognition in the longest-running review of colleges serving military veteran and military-affiliated students.
