SHC Achieves High Regional Rankings & National Distinctions


Spring Hill achieved the seventh overall ranking because of a low 13:1 student to faculty ratio, a drop in tuition, high retention rates, and a top 100 ranking for social mobility. 

Out of 1,500 schools, Spring Hill ranked in the top 100 for social mobility. Social mobility focuses on the advancement of economically disadvantaged students. Social mobility is measured based on the amount of students that enroll and graduate from an institution that has been awarded a Pell Grant. “We are very proud of this recognition,” said Rebecca Cantor, Ph.D., Provost of Spring Hill College. “It represents our dedication to providing an excellent education that is accessible and affordable for all students. But we offer so much more. Here at Spring Hill, we offer an enriching experience that changes lives and prepares those who seek more for their futures.”

Spring Hill College also ranked 12th for Best Value based on academic quality and flexible financial aid in U.S. News & World Report. In addition to these rankings, Spring Hill earned six distinctions by the Colleges of Distinction. For 2022-2023, Spring Hill was recognized as Best Catholic College, Best in the State of Alabama, Best Nursing Degree, Best Business Degree, and Best Career Development Program.

“Being recognized in these areas is yet another way Spring Hill College shows our care for the  whole person,” said Nathan Copeland, Ed.D., Vice President for Enrollment. “When you attend Spring Hill, you are more than a number. You are part of a community. Spring Hill not only focuses on offering an affordable and highly regarded education, but we also ensure the student experience and transition into life after graduation is as smooth as possible.”
