United States – EDsmart’s ranking of the best colleges in Mississippi is the most comprehensive and well-rounded to date. The ranking includes only fully accredited schools.

The Best Colleges in Mississippi rankings allow students to compare accredited programs and find those that best fit their education interests and career goals,” said EDsmart’s spokesperson. “Beyond providing affordable education, a college is not successful if it does not graduate its students, which is why EDsmart rankings place high value on outcomes, including graduation and retention rates.”
