Freed-Hardeman University continued to move up in the U.S. News & World Report rankings released this fall. FHU is ranked in the Top Five of the magazine’s Best Value Schools; it is the sole representative of universities supported by members of the churches of Christ to appear in the rankings.
The Best Value ranking specifically considers a school’s academic quality and the 2020-21 cost of attendance for a student who received
the average level of need-based financial aid. Last year, FHU ranked eighth; this year, it is ranked fourth.
FHU also moved up five spots, from 36 to 31, in the magazine’s rankings of Regional Universities—South. It is the only school affiliated with churches of Christ to appear in the top 100 in the regional ranking.
