"Do your research and choose wisely and here is not it. I can tell you of 2 professor that seemed to actually care. The rest my enemies are friendlier. Most jobs laugh at your degree from here, still no work after 1 year of graduating. Looking to go back to school but it will not be here. I will not even go into their financial department when dealing with the VA. All they want is numbers and money that is all."

"I am a retired Army Vet of 22 years service to my country and a Lt at the state Dept of Corrections, I applied to LU after some research when a school I was attended was charging me and the VA, double dipping. Everything was going great until my I took the Lt position at another prison and was put on 2p-10p shift, moved, and my wife got terribly ill. I had received 60+ credit hours for all my work in the military and the DOC and was just under 2 years into my studies when this all happen and I fell behind for one and a half 5 1/2 week course and was put on academic suspension, while still taking my money and then told that I was on a suspension and would not be allowed to re-enroll for 2 years. I tried everything I could to have that reversed, to no avail. I understand with my GI bill i have to maintain a certain GPA to receive the grant and since the school could not receive my VA benefits I believe they then decided to suspend me. I feel as if nothing was done to help me be able to continue at LU and finish my degree considering I was not that far from my degree, only a small fraction of hours were needed to complete it. I had to enroll into another degree program at a different college that offers on line degree program in my field and lost several hours of work because I was not awarded the same amount of credit hours from my training and schooling with my job in the military and my current job in the state DOC. I basically started over with the same credit hours i was awarded with to start with at LU. But, this is important to me and also my wife. We want to help victims of Human Trafficking and I need to continue my education in CJ with concentration on cyber crimes in order to do that. So I started over with another University because I will still have it completed and graduate before I would be allowed to re-enroll in LU. I am a United States Veteran and feel I was not afforded the opportunities at this school to help during my time of need, it is a Christian college and to me I believe the Lord helps those who are in need but this school sure does not. They just want your money. Maybe actually going to the university is a different experience than the online studies. I heard and read great things about this school, but thinking back most were from students enrolled at the actual university, not online. I guess us online students are not that important to Liberty when you have a financial issue."
