College is an Investment

As much as degree programs or campus culture play a part in deciding which school is right for your son or daughter, cost is also a big factor.

At Liberty University, we believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to pursue higher education, and it’s our job to keep private education affordable for you.

That’s why 96% of Liberty students receive financial aid.

And it’s why we don’t stop working to develop new financial solutions for families — like refusing to raise tuition costs for the 2020-21 school year.

Or being the first the first university in the U.S. — public or private — to design a financial assistance program that funds the difference for students who don’t receive a full federal Pell Grant.*

Learn more about college costs, financial aid, and how Liberty can help you develop a plan to conquer the cost factor.

Are there any perks to being in-state?

If you live in Virginia, you already know everything the Commonwealth has to offer — from mountains, beaches, and historical monuments to big cities, small towns, sophistication, and down-home hospitality. It has a little bit of everything. It’s home.

And if Liberty becomes your college home, you’ll qualify for at least $1,500 per year just for being a Virginia resident.
