"Notice the rating is 3 stars. That’s because there is a lot of bots/fluff with these 5 stars. If you’re thinking about this school, I highly suggest looking at the negatives first. They give insight to how “Godly” this school really is. If your life isn’t fixed, and you feel like some random emergency might cause you to withdraw early, just don’t take this program. Liberty University only cares about the money. I went there residentially for undergrad and had to do online for the master’s because of Covid. A family emergency along with hospital visits forced me to withdraw because I had ti take care of my parents. Emailed my professors, let them know what was up. They were all very understanding and I withdrew. I put in my withdrawal with my reasonings being immediate family emergency. It was 2020, going to the hospital started to be a common phenomenon. I was only 2 weeks into the course. Later on I got a call from the financial department saying that since I didn’t stay they sent back my financial aid. I owe them $5000. Why would I pay the price of the full course if I didn’t take the full course? A percentage is understandable but they told me I had to pay for the full course. Then the financial aid guy told me that was because I didn’t withdraw at the right time. I should just go back and register to get the financial aid back. So I registered for different courses. I was going to stick through the program just so I didn’t have to pay for a semester I barely started. I was actively looking for work because I lost my job due to Covid and the care act stopped, so I wasn’t getting anymore money, but wanted to try and finish while being preoccupied with taking care of parents and looking for work. When I looked at the course work for the graduate Psychology and Christianity course it looked familiar. I took that class residentially as an undergrad. I pulled up my old syllabus and compared it to the graduate on. It’s the same syllabus WORD FOR WORD with a different font. All the coursework is the same. Including all the papers. Liberty…. You know better. Why am I taking a class I already took. The only difference was instead of 2 textbooks you apparently need 3. Which I didn’t even bother because if the assignments are the same (I even checked all the assignments rubrics and instructions and they are identical to the undergrad work) why would I need a 3rd textbook if I didn’t need it in undergrad. I even got points off during a test because they didn’t agree with my idea of “evolution.” That was the final straw. I had to pay for the courses I withdrew. I had to take the same course with the same assignments. (And we all know you can resubmit assignments because it’s plagiarisms) and I’m getting points taken off because I didn’t disagree with evolution? I left during the withdraw time. Also Liberty University didn’t accept my reasonings for withdraw. They don’t accept any documents that aren’t professionally made with wet sign. I told them the financial aid person told me to reapply just to get my financial aid back and they said they can’t corroborate my claim because “Liberty university employees don’t count as third party.” Oh so y’all covering y’all ***. I have the medical reason for leaving the first time, but they want a reason for why I reapply and when I tell them and show email documents all they say in response is “we don’t accept that and you didn’t thoroughly explain the circumstances.” So the committee can’t read?"

"BEWARE: Would have not even given 1 Star in many of these areas! Completed my Masters in CMHC and after my first year realized this school was going to be a disappointment. Advising should be trained for all programs OR each program should have their own advising. Class recommendations according to the degree plan was a pure pain. Liberty also allow their faculty to be emotionally and verbally abusive; given NO support even after its reported!!!!!! Their expectations for the students to remain professional and Godly DOES NOT apply for their faculty staff!!! Awful experience and very unnecessary! No one should pay for an education that’s toxic!!!!! I Would Not Recommend This University To Anyone!!!!!!!!"

"Run, run, run from this school. This is a horrible school. They just want your money. They could care a less about your goals, aspirations, needs, and so much more. I graduated from University of Michigan with a 3.7 GPA. At this school I got a D+, and when I tried to withdraw from the school they named off all of these consequences. I wasted a good $7,000. at this school with 0 credit hours earned. Now my FAFSA is all messed up. I have never been so angry and stressed out in my entire life. The coursework is ridiculous. Hundreds and hundreds of text due every week on top of 6 writing assignments. They told me I would spend about 10 hours a week on my classes, it was more like 40+ and not learning a damn thing. They don’t care if their school is a good fit for you, if you’re in the right program, they don’t ask about your goals. It’s just give me your money!! For a Christian University, they’re far from Christian. We’ll pray for you, we’ll probably at for you, just do your Financial Check in. They hounded me every single day for my money, and once they got it, I didn’t hear a word from them. DO NOT go to this university unless you’re a champion at dealing with intense stress. They will, without a doubt, stress you out. Find another school, any school but this one."

"I would not recommend this University to anyone. I got my undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and this school has been a nightmare ever since they received my Financial Aid. Before they received my Financial Aid they were calling me multiple times a day, then after they received my money, they never bothered to return any of my calls. I asked for help from the Disabilities Department and they kept telling me that my therapist needed to sign the letter. She e-mailed it, faxed it, signed it multiple times and still, I got no help. As a grad student, you're on your own. Tons of reading and paper writing and no instruction. I was lucky and fortunate to have 1 awesome professor. If it weren't for her, I would've quit. She allowed me extra time without marking me down and did several Zooms with me and a personal phone call. Thank God for her. Otherwise, this school is a joke! They sure do want your money! After that, you don't really exist to them. I guess I just didn't do my research because I feel I could've chosen a much better online school. My friend who goes to Capella says she loves it, and is nothing like what I've gone through at Liberty. Besides, my awesome professor, this school sucks."

"Overall my experience with Liberty was a good one. I attended entirely online. The classes are 8 weeks long %26 I found the coursework to be incredibly manageable. Some of the professors are significantly harder than others but all of my courses were designed equally %26 everything flowed nicely. Communication with all parts of the university were thorough and prompt. They also have a generous military discount, even for spouses. The only thing I did not like was that there was always religion roped into the assignments."
