SNHU Online vs Liberty Online?
#1
Scenario= transferring in 90 credits towards Business Degree.

Pros/Cons of either school? Both seem to have a reputable online environment, ACBSP accredited, 8-week classes. SNHU online is $320/credit, Liberty $390/credit BUT there is a 15% Sophia scholarship for Liberty bringing it to $330/credit.

Liberty may have more financial aid?

Experiences with either school to share?

Thanks so much!!

Well they both accept ACE and I think they both agreements with Straighterline, study.com, etc. I'd look at the agreements and how you can map it out for max transfer.

I feel like SNHU has a better reputation. But could be wrong. Liberty is a christian school, and you don't have to christian to attend it. But they make you take a couple bible classes for any degree. (I think you get one waived if you transfer in a ton of credits.) If you aren't religious or Christian that could liberty less desirable.

Also, if you can find all or do all your credits though ACE, liberty offers challenge exams. Kind of like teceps for only $130, but it counts as transfer credit. But still good to have. I don't think SNHU offers this, but maybe could take liberty challenge exams and transfer them to SNHU.

Another good option might University Maryland Global Campus. They offer 4 and 8 week online courses. In state rate if you take 4 Straighterline courses. And accept 90 credits and they take study.com, sophia, straighterline and more. Just a thought if decide against Liberty or SNHU.

I don't know what kind of fees SNHU might sneak in there (better check on it) but Liberty has over 100$ "technology fee" then a materials fee and a couple other b.s. fees tacked onto the tuition. So it's significantly more expensive than just the rate for credit-hour cost.

Nice catch - yes I see $199/semester fee for tech - 3x a year.

So far I don't see any SNHU fees.

They also have Course Fees: https://www.liberty.edu/student-financia...040-UG.pdf

And some b.s. called "inclusive access" fees. (That's a new one.): https://www.liberty.edu/student-financia...072320.pdf

Not sure if they're both applied or one or the other or what the situation is. Never dealt with them. Just happened to be poking around the other day and saw the fees.

One is in the media frequently in a negative light and the other one isn't. One requires classes on the bible which for many people is fine and for many people isn't fine. If you don't mind lining the pockets of the Falwell family, then you know which to choose. If you don't want to line their pockets, then you also know which to choose.

Liberty U inclusive access means you get to unzip your pants, pull the shirt up and get access from what I am seeing in the press. I guess you have to pay for that now :-)

*rimshot* Heyooooooooo!!

If I was in charge of the Dept. of Education, I'd make a federal rule that all fees must be included in the tuition figure, and graduation fees would be banned.

Some colleges charge as much in fees as they do in tuition. Many state schools are like this to make up for the "lack" of state funding. You ALWAYS have to read the fine print and watch those fees.

I'd avoid Liberty like the plague. They majorly screwed me over last minute before classes started. I'm now scrambling to beg my previous school to take me back this term. The transfer scholarships are nice but they have horrible support. So much for a "Christian" school.
