A New Scholarship Opportunity — The Middle America Scholarship

We’re placing hardworking citizens at the forefront. Liberty is the first university in the U.S., public or private, to design a financial assistance program for the working middle class.

Currently, many don’t qualify for the full Federal Pell Grant amount. The Middle America Scholarship is helping to bridge that gap.

If your family falls within the $35,000-$95,000 income bracket, you may be eligible for over $5,000 per year. And you may be able to lock in the Middle America Scholarship program amount for up to four years. You can find out more about the Middle America Scholarship on our financial aid page.

Program-qualifying criteria and scholarship amounts are evaluated annually and are subject to change. The program was launched for new residential undergraduate students starting college in Fall 2019.

Tuition And Fees Vid

It’s hard being sick when you’re away from home. To make it a little easier, our Student Health Center is centrally located on campus. Treatment in our medical clinic, women’s clinic, and allergy and immunization clinic is covered by the health fee — so are X-rays and routine lab work. Crisis, recovery, and group counseling services (and more) are also available to students through the Dean of Students office.

Did You Know? Medical prescriptions can now be delivered directly to your dorm.

Course Fees

You can’t fly a plane without paying for fuel. Or do graphic design without rights to the software. Or shoot a film without a camera. Some degree programs require material or special licensing fees to cover the tools necessary for learning the profession. Giving you access to industry-standard equipment and hands-on learning is just one of the ways Liberty prepares you for success in the “real world.” Find out more about your course-specific fees here.

Did you Know? Cinematic Arts students use “Red” cameras in their classes — the type Peter Jackson used to shoot “The Hobbit.”
