    I can't describe how helpful each and every employee with Liberty University has been to me during my application and enrollment process. I've been able to chat live with numerous individuals who've been nothing short of amazing. Each question I ask is answered promptly, and I've had lots of them! For someone going through the college application process alone, I've felt beyond supported by all employees I've had interactions with. Tuition is not only affordable, but their online program is exactly what I need since I work full-time. The flexibility is unmatched. I cannot thank Liberty University enough for making this chaotic and sometimes intimidating process nothing but smooth-sailing and enjoyable.

    I love Liberty University! My dream is to go there someday; in fact, I just recently applied! I have a couple of friends who have graduated from there, and they loved every experience there. My best friend currently is at Liberty University, and we are really excited to room together if I get accepted. Liberty University has great customer service, where they have representatives to talk to about basically any question you have. They also have many scholarships and opportunities for financial aid. I am currently a dual enrollment student through Liberty, and love the atmosphere of the classroom, even online. Their professors are amazing and encouraging as well. The ones that I have had are on top of things and make sure they are available to talk to any student who may need help. So far, I have had a great experience with Liberty University.
    Overall Liberty University is decent school. I didn't like the constant marketing calls to register for courses, but they updated their communication preferences which allowed me to opt out of them. It is a Christian School...expect to apply a Christian Worldview to assignments. You will get as much out of it as you put into it. My biggest problem with the school is reading the work of other students. The fact these students have bachelors degrees (a pre-req to get a MBA) is scary. After reading the other reviews of people complaining about low grades I'm hoping these are same classmates I had to deal with in class...they deserved to fail based on the quality of their work. In fact, the complaints actually make me feel better because throughout my degree I dealt with incompetence and assumed they were getting the same grades as me so the school could keep collecting their money. It seems that wasn't the case now. At the end of the day I'm happy to be a Liberty Alumni!
