Liberty U freezes tuition, adds scholarship for middle-income students

Liberty University, in Virginia, is freezing tuition and room and board costs for the 2019-20 academic year and offering a new scholarship for middle-income students. The university lists tuition at $23,800, with room and board starting at around $8,300. This is the first time in a decade the college has frozen tuition.

The new Middle America Scholarship is aimed at students whose families earn $35,000 to $95,000 annually and have an estimated expected contribution of $1 to $18,000. Combined with another university scholarship, it will provide about $5,000 in aid.

Other support comes from the local Stay Close, Go Far Promise Scholarship that provides up to $8,000 to students who attended local public high schools if they enroll at one of six universities, and Liberty is giving an extra $8,000 to help pay for meal plans.
