Best Student-Faculty Ratio: All Colleges and Universities Over 300 Students

This data is sourced from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System ( http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/ ).

About the study

This study includes all schools with at least 300 students, with some types of specialty schools (such as medical/health care schools) removed. Student-Faculty ratio is computed by dividing full time equivalent enrollment by full time primarily instructional professors.

Many of the schools with the lower student-faculty ratio also have less students in general. Liberal arts, vocational/technical and STEM focused schools are prevalent throughout this list.
