Worried about $$$ for college? Maybe a Work College is the Right Fit for You!
Work colleges offer enhanced learning opportunities by integrating Work, Learning, and Service throughout the college experience. Students earn a valuable degree plus attributes like: critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, decision-making, leadership, professionalism and a quest for lifelong learning. Graduates complete their degree with considerably less debt than their peers. Three colleges even cover the full cost of tuition for qualified students. Every work program is distinctive, but all teach students the critical balance of study, community service & managed work expectations. Most work positions are limited to 10-15 hours per week and designed to enhance the collegiate experience. "Earning while learning" reduces student debt and provides employers with dedicated professionals who have proven experience and work ethic. Work College graduates report their college better prepared them for their current job compared to their peers at other institutions. The seven federally recognized Work Colleges in the US are: Alice Lloyd, Berea College, Blackburn College, College of the Ozarks, Ecclesia College, Sterling College, and Warren Wilson College.

New Scholarship Available for Students of Middle Income Families!
Liberty University is offering the new Middle America Scholarship for first time residential undergraduate students enrolling in Fall 2019, helping make college education more affordable for middle-income families. Liberty is the first university in the U.S.—public or private—to design a financial assistance program in this manner. “If a qualifying student does not receive a full federal Pell Grant, Liberty University is funding the difference,” said Ashley Reich, VP of Student Financial Services. As higher education costs rise, the scholarship will enable more students raised on working-class incomes to pursue degrees that will lead to higher-paying career opportunities. Families whose total annual income typically ranges from $35,000-$95,000 may be eligible for over $5,000 per year. The scholarship will assist applicants enrolling full time in degree-seeking programs to reach the equivalent of a full Pell Grant amount allowed each year.
