16 HBCUs make the list of top colleges and universities in the U.S.

16 HBCUs make the list of top colleges and universities in the U.S.
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on July 29, 2013

Forbes published their list of the top 650 colleges and universities in the U.S. and we have a handful of historically black colleges and universities that made the list. For this list, Forbes looked at factors that directly concern today’s incoming students (and their families) who will be footing a bill: Will my classes be interesting? Is it likely I will graduate in four years? Will I incur a ton of debt getting my degree? And once I get out of school, will I get a good job and be a leader in my chosen profession?

Fisk University was the highest rated HBCU at number 188.



They are ahead of juggernauts such as the University of South Carolina, the University of Oregon, Florida State University, the University of Arizona, and the University of Alabama.

Spelman College clocked in at number 254, ahead of big weights such as the University of Kentucky, Mississippi State University, and the University of Tennessee,

Spelman College is followed by Morehouse College, Howard University, and North Carolina A&T State University, who round out the top 5 HBCUs on the list. The biggest mover-shaker was Morehouse College, the only all-male historically black college in the U.S., who jumped 235 spots to No. 285.


188. Fisk University
254. Spelman College
285. Morehouse College
342. Howard University
497. North Carolina A&T State University
532. Tuskegee University
549. Jackson State University

626. Morgan State University
633. Bowie State University
646. Dillard University
647. Claflin University
648. South Carolina State University
649. Texas Southern University
