Firefighters, police officers, paramedics, and other first responders can receive a discount as our appreciation for the significant contributions they make to their communities. We want to make earning a college education for you as affordable as possible by offering generous police discounts, ems discounts, and firefighter discounts. The Emergency Response Personnel discount is also offered in place of a civil air patrol scholarship for those public servants.
Liberty University is committed to providing world-class education and helping students achieve their educational goals, in whatever way we can. The Towns/Kopis Emergency Response Tuition Discount was created to offer a discounted tuition rate for police, firefighters, ems, and others who work as first responders.
As Liberty University's way of saying 'Thank You,' we proudly provide you with the following benefits:
Liberty University defines Emergency Response Personnel as those students currently (or within the last five years) employed, volunteering, or retired from the areas of law enforcement, emergency services, Civil Air Patrol (CAP) senior members, fire safety and rescue work.
For a full list of eligibility requirements and positions, please visit the Scholarships Page.
*Please note: This discount only applies to students enrolled in online associate, bachelors, graduate, and doctoral degree programs.
Tuition for all undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs has not increased in three straight years. While many other online colleges have raised tuition, Liberty has been able to keep costs low as a non-profit university. Our tuition rate for military service members and emergency response personnel is even lower.
Many military veterans who are no longer serving are often employed as emergency response personnel in their civilian careers., service members or their spouses are employed as emergency response personnel. Unlike most other scholarships or discounts, these prior military members can stack their Liberty-given military tuition discount with our Emergency Response Personnel discount, as long as all qualifications are met. Students who qualify for both discounts can take advantage of the rate below for some of our popular programs:
· Undergraduate* - $390 $250 $188 Over 50% Savings
· M.A., M.S., M.B.A., and M.Ed.* - $565 $275 $207- 63% Savings
· Education Specialist and Ed.D.* - $595 $275 $207 – 65% Savings
*Tuition rates are current as of the 2017-2018 school year. These rates are per credit hour.
