St. Augustine, Fla. -- For the 13th year, U.S. News & World Report has featured Flagler College in its annual “America’s Best Colleges” publication.

Flagler College is ranked 14th on the 2008 list of best Southern baccalaureate colleges. U.S. News also highlighted Flagler for having an acceptance rate of 26 percent – the lowest rate of all Southern baccalaureate colleges. A low acceptance rate typically indicates a college’s selectivity and popularity.

U.S.News’ annual publication organizes colleges and universities under different categories, including location and type of education offered. The rankings are based on statistics such as average graduation rates, student/faculty ratios, acceptance rates, average alumni giving, SAT scores and more.

As a baccalaureate college, Flagler is considered an institution with a “focus on undergraduate education” that “offers a range of degree programs” in the liberal arts and professional fields. There are 320 baccalaureate colleges in the United States. Visit www.usnews.com for more information.
