Inclusive, Supportive, and Committed to Your Fullest Potential
While some colleges believe in being exclusive — admitting only those with the highest test scores and best transcripts — at Liberty, we believe in every student’s potential to succeed.
Here, we’re breaking the mold.
We know that when students are given the extra attention they need, they can achieve more than they ever expected.
Whether you’re a first-year student facing anxieties about college life as you transition from high school or an upperclassman who wants to sharpen new skills, you can find support services designed to boost your confidence and help you reach your highest goals for academic achievement.
CASAS services support you through:
- Study skills help
- Time management training
- Reading skill development
- Individual and group tutoring
- Academic advising
- Academic counseling
Succeeding as a student and as a professional starts with succeeding as a person. Regular workshops helping you develop critical life skills are available and often offered in partnership with individual schools or departments. They cover these and other relevant topics:
- Overcoming procrastination
- Personal growth and goal setting
- Mindset/time commitments/test taking
- Critical thinking/study skills
- Motivation/academic success
- Editing and proofreading
Peer and professional advisors are available during the week and are ready to help you create a plan for success that is uniquely tailored to your individual needs. These plans help you overcome procrastination, improve your test-taking, reading skills, time management, and more.
Academic Success Courses are helpful electives that teach practical study skills. Many of these courses meet once a week and count as 1-hour credit courses. You’ll meet regularly with faculty mentors and gain skills that will give you lifelong benefits.
Need to brush up on a certain subject? Over 50 subject-based tutoring services — in areas like modern languages, health sciences, mathematics, and more — are readily available.
