    We're now considering Liberty and Regency for our youngest son. Does anyone have any experience with either one? Southern Nazarene and Mid America Christian University were at the top of his list but SNU has been almost impossible to get answers out of and MACU is too conservative with the CLEPS they will take.
    So now we are looking at online Christian colleges. He's been accepted at all four schools I just mentioned so that's not an issue.

    Our oldest son attends SNU and it's been a good experience academically but they have gone downhill in the administration department.

    We've gone as far as paying the dorm deposit with SNU but it's refundable though May so that's not a biggie.

    I've always liked Liberty but feel that they are way too expensive.

    I like Liberty too. My sister in law is currently an online student at Liberty and has nothing but good things to say about it.

    That being said my brother attends Mid American, which he has nothing but great things to say. I'd say either way you go it's a winner.

    So wait, he could go live on campus at SNU or stay home and attend Liberty online? Definitely the former, then. It's a very good experience for young adults to get out of their parents' houses. I know that's not the aspect of this about which you were asking, but that's what I think.

    SNU will take up 30 hours of CLEP and accepts most CLEP tests for credit at the ACE-recommended score. They even have a website dedicated to CLEP:

    Good luck!

    Be different. Be blue. Go UCO.

    What can I say? I like the small OK state schools.

    Beyond that, I can't tell you too much about the schools you mentioned. I have a lot of coworkers doing the B.S. in organizational leadership (a one night a week bachelor's degree completion program for people who already have an associate's through SNU and a couple doing thier MBA through MACU but both of those are apples and oranges compared to an 18 year old attending school fulltime.

    I'm embarrassed, it's Regent.

    Airtorn, how big UCO now? I had the impression it's fairly big school compared to SNU and MACU.

    It has about 16,000. The majority are commuters. My wife graduated from there in December with her master's so I am a little biased towards it.

    I really enjoy my classes at Liberty but I also believe going away to college is a good experience.

    I believe Liberty will also accept 30 hours of CLEP.
