An important concern for many parents and students is the relative safety of a college campus or surrounding college area.

All colleges and universities eligible for public funding are required to make crime statistics on their campuses available to the public.

At American School Search, we have developed Safety Reports for almost all schools listed on our website. These reports have been compiled from the most recent data that has been collected from these schools and issued by the US Department of Education.

This data is both public and unbiased, and has been presented here as a comprehensive guide for both students and parents looking for college safety information.

The reports themselves are an outline of both violent and non-violent occurrences of crime within a 3-year period of time. They also outline both on-campus and off-campus crime statistics, and help in providing insight to the college seeker regarding the relative safety of college campuses and their surrounding areas.

By evaluating this data, our safety reports have projected the likelihood of a students involvement in various types of crime occurrences while attending each college.

This projection is based on a unique and comprehensive formula that takes into account several different factors. The types of crimes are each weighted differently and are then scored to reflect the severity of each crime.

The scores are then normalized so that consideration is given to other characteristics of the school; such as the present student body enrollment, past crime history of the specific college, and its current crime trend.

In addition to these reports, you will also find the 100 Safest colleges that have achieved the highest standards of safety excellence according to our analysis, as well as the top 100 Most Dangerous that have the most dangerous reputations for crime in the United States based on our reviews.

Both of these lists have been compiled based on both the nature and number of crime statistics attributed to a particular college area from the U.S. Department of Education.

When it comes to colleges, it is important to remember that no single area can be completely immune to crime, and many crimes today are actually more common on a college campus than off of it.

We encourage you to compare more than just safety reports in your college selection process. We hope that our safety reports are simply a starting point for you to seek out more information about a specific college.

We also encourage you to use our College Search page to begin searching for specific colleges, or to visit our School Reviews section to discover more detailed information about each college.
