Why Attend?

Liberty University is blessed with a culture of support and value for our nation’s military and we are committed to the success of all of our military students, including service members, veterans, and their families. We strive to meet their needs within the traditional and online classrooms by providing rich educational experiences facilitated by military-supportive faculty and through extensive services, resources, and excellent customer service. To serve unique military needs, Liberty University has a full-time Military Student Liaison and VetSuccess on Campus counselor available in our on-campus Veterans Center who are available to assist transitioning military and veteran students. In addition, Liberty has established the Office of Military Affairs with over 50 full-time military education professionals devoted to assisting military students by providing specialized services related to benefit counseling, benefit awards, and military community/outreach. This team plans military/veteran events, conducts outreach through social media outlets, and more to provide opportunities for student connection and growth within the Liberty military community. Liberty also offers two student groups focused on veteran support and community service, frequent care package drives, and a Career Center that can help veterans identify military-friendly employers and employment opportunities. Our goal is to continually improve our service and expand what we offer military students to provide a welcoming environment and the resources to succeed in their academic/professional objectives.
