Top Universities in Arkansas


What are Arkansas’ most well-known universities? Topuniversitieslist attempts to address this issue by releasing the Arkansas University Ranking for 2021, which includes 23 accredited Arkansas higher-education institutions that fulfill the Topuniversitieslist selection criteria:

  • being chartered, registered, or certified by the relevant US higher education-related institution, and providing at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees) in a conventional, face-to-face, non-distance education style.

Our goal is to create a non-academic League Table of the best Arkansas universities that is focused on accurate, impartial, and non-influenceable site measurements generated by objective web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the universities themselves.
