Top Missouri Colleges and Universities
July 11, 2013 - 10:08am
Missouri has rich and diverse options for higher education. My top picks for the state range from small private colleges with religious affiliations to large public universities. Of course Washington University in St. Louis made the list (it consistently ranks as one of the country's best universities).
Some of the other colleges may be less familiar to you. See my list of the top 12 Missouri colleges to see who made the cut. The schools were chosen based on factors such as academic strengths, curricular innovations, first-year retention rates, four- and six-year graduation rates, financial aid and student engagement.

To get a partial idea of what it takes to get into these top Missouri colleges, I've created side-by-side comparison charts of the ACT scores and SAT scores for the middle 50% of matriculated students.
If there are other Missouri colleges that you think deserve to be on the list, share your recommendations below. The "best" college for your interests, goals and personality may have little to do with my own selection criteria.
