U.S. News and World Report released Wednesday its 2013 Best Colleges report. While some Oklahoma schools remained stagnant, others slipped in the rankings.

The report ranked schools across the country based on several factors, including graduation rates, freshmen retention rates, and selectivity. The University of Oklahoma was ranked 101st out of 281 national universities. It's the same spot the school held in 2012.

Oklahoma State University dropped from 132nd to 139th. The University of Tulsa also slipped in the ranking, coming in 83rd. That's eight spots lower than last year, but still higher than both OU and OSU. However, TU ranked 12th on a list of schools whose students graduated deeply in debt.

Oklahoma's regional schools did a little better.

Oklahoma City University moved up in the ranking of West regional universities, coming in at 26th. Oklahoma Christian University, the University of Central Oklahoma, and Southwestern Oklahoma University also moved up.
