Colleges with High Student to Faculty Ratio in Virginia

This page lists colleges with the high Student to Faculty Ratio (a faculty teaches/cares more students which means probably less attention/support on each student) in Virginia. Regent University has the lowest students to faculty ratio of 47 to 1 where 189 faculty or instructional staffs teach 9,889 undergraduate students in Virginia.
We exclude colleges whose programs are focused on certificate, associate, and/or special subjects such as arts and music from the ranking. We also exclude schools which provide programs through online exclusively since those schools have relatively many more students per faculty than regular colleges.
The next table shows the schools that have high Student to Faculty Ratio with total number of students and faculties. Note that the actual ratio is computed based on number of undergraduate students and instructional staffs who teach undergraduate programs.
