Amberton University Reviews:

Extremely Poor Experience with Liberty University

BBA - IT - May 16, 2015

I am a current Liberty University online student in a Masters Degree program. I have one last class to complete which is an internship. The individual courses have been informative and helpful. The intensives were definitely a unique experience. The communication within the school is horrible. When I needed to contact a specific department, I was never allowed to speak to anyone. The only people you can speak with are the academic advisors and they do not have the authority to answer questions. When scheduling the intensives (you travel to Virginia to take week long classes) I needed basic information regarding parking for a rental car, obtaining a parking pass, local hotels, etc. The academic advisors did not know how to obtain a simple parking permit and would not provide me a phone number to speak with anyone. I finally found the Liberty University Police Department phone number through an intern search and obtained what I needed. The internship department refuses to speak with anyone on the phone, the advisors are told to tell you they have no phones. However, one advisor let it slip that I can email them and request a phone call. They do have phones, but the advisors are not allowed to give out the phone number. I sent the requests on three separate occasions and never received a phone call. It takes days to get responses via email. Professors do not return phone calls either, despite providing their phone numbers to the students. I have one class left and it looks like they are going to refuse to let me complete it due to an ego issue between their internship staff and a local agency who is willing to let me complete the internship at their agency. I was told if the internship department does not allow me to complete the class, I will lose my tuition money for the class. This is despite my completion of all the student requirements. Liberty does not work with students, despite what they promise you when you enroll. Do not believe them when they tell you what a great experience it is. The advisors call you constantly, until tuition is paid or there is a problem. The only reason I am still with Liberty is because I do not have the funds to start over at another University. Yes, I did contact other Universities to explore my options. Do not attend this school, find another one!

Great College

Don't overlook Amberton because it's a private college or think it is easy. The standards and expectations are just a strong as a traditional college. Without Amberton it would have been very difficult for me to return to school and finish my degree. I am going to graduate in May of 2008. I then plan to continue at Amberton for my MBA. The professors are wonderful and most of them care about their students. Again this is a tough challenging college and not at all easier than tradition large Universities. I highly recommend Amberton to anyone especially working adults with families!
