National Rankings

CBU is consistently rated one of the best Universities in the Southeast and in the nation. We are recognized for our academic excellence, engaged faculty and caring environment. Of course, the most valuable recognition comes in the form of feedback from our own students who continue to praise their CBU education for the quality of their professors, the great career prospects it provides and the low levels of debt with which they graduate.
