Liberty University Online Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (188)
This college is by far the best I have encountered upon. Staff is very helpful even with taking online college courses. I am currently a freshman. I look forward to achieving my bachelors with them as they make me feel like family. If you have any questions they answer you immediately.
I completed the first two years of my degree at a public University (UWF) but had to transfer to the online format when we moved to another state. The classes were challenging and I did feel adequately prepared to transition into a different professional field. Initially I was skeptical about the need for an internship, but once completed I was better able to see its value. I am not a fan of discussion boards. Discussion boards expose one of the areas where I feel Liberty is most vulnerable to legitimate criticism. Many of the students simply cannot write well. I don't think this issue is confined to LUO as the same could be said about other colleges I've attended. Still, I believe that the standards should be higher with regards to written assignments. If you cannot write a cohesive sentence, you should not be admitted to college. It is that simple. I am also not a fan of the new trend that integrates "E Books" within the course. Students should have the choice, and should not be forced to purchase an electronic version if that is not compatible with their learning style. I've grown in my faith and my love for God since attending LUO, and just started classes at the Graduate level. I highly recommend LUO.
I am currently in the last semester of my bachelor degree in business. I couldn't be happier with Liberty University. I have juggled working, my family and their inline program for the last three years. It has been an amazing yet challenging experience. Anytime that I need anything, someone is always there to help me. My instructors respond to my emails within 24 hours. To me, that is understandable.
Look no further! I am very satisfied with my degree journey with Liberty University. They are a personable online school with real professors who want to teach. The school is religion based and some of my courses where heavy with faith and spirituality, nonetheless I still learned practical and applicable knowledge to be practiced anywhere. If you run into any issues or have any questions it's easy to get in contact with someone and everyone I have encountered were pleasant. Great school, I am glad I choose them.
I have been attending Liberty University Online since the fall 2015 semester, and have had an absolutely positive experience. I will graduate with an AA this spring. I have had such a great experience, I have decided to continue on to obtain a BS in Public Administration. The admissions process is simple and thorough, and Liberty offers significant discounts to both veterans and first responders. My academic advisors have remained in contact, and have been very accessible to me each and every time I have contacted them by phone or email. They have always had the answer to my questions or connected me with the person who did. The classes are nicely structured, and it is easy to track all pending assignments as well as graded assignments on Blackboard. The professors are extremely knowledgeable in their fields, are eager to assist you, and respond to your questions and concerns within the required time. The instructors also offer encouraging Christian testimonials, prayer, and encouragement to their students, and each course incorporates the right amount of a Christian worldview into the curriculum. This being said, the student does have obligations as well. Assignments must be submitted on time to receive the best scores (professors are receptive to requests for extensions given enough advance notification and an acceptable reason). Nearly all writing assignments are checked for plagiarism, therefore the student must submit his or her own work. Regular attendance and participation is required in classes and is determined by your assignment submissions. Being inactive for too long will earn you an email encouraging you to become more engaged. Everything expected of the student in regards to assignments and behavior is thoroughly explained in each course. Adherence to these guidelines and your best effort will ensure a successful outcome. I have not read each comment posted on this site, but suspect that most of the negative comments are from those who have not applied themselves or exhibited the proper amount of dedication and determination that should be expected with college level studies. As a Christian adult, who is a veteran, first responder, and employed full-time, I highly recommend Liberty University online to everyone.
Liberty University is a very good school. The school guides you to achieve your academic pursuit in a Godly approach. The lecturers are excellent and are ready to provide assistance when you need help. I recommend Liberty University to this generation because many of them have gone astray.
There's a reason why LU online makes their admissions an easy process. They will tell you what you want to hear, then when it's time to deliver, you'll realize you've been scammed. I was told by LU recruitment that when it came time to complete my practicum courses, that they would arrangement placement. THAT was a BIG BIG LIE!! I was told I would be assigned a MSN academic advisor. NOPE!! You won't get that either. Here's my advice if you do decide to attend LUO. Write down EVERYTHING, date, time, etc. Record conversations if possible. Print off your grade after each assignment. After I filed my grade appeals, and provided evidence of discrimination, a few of my rubrics, and professors comments were changed. If you really think this is a Christian based university, and that your professors will be caring, understanding, compassionate, and/or enjoy teaching, THINK AGAIN!! President Jerry Farwell should investigate the unethical, unprofessional treatment of online students. Remember, online students have NO resources available for when you have problems. Right now, I can't get ANYONE to return my calls, or emails. I have so much money wasted in this horrible university. They know it's difficult for students to start over at another university. Online students have no rights, students are forced to retake courses. This means more money for the university, and higher student loan debts for the student. Stay far away from this university. My hope is that God punishes every single person involved in scamming online students, and uses God's name in to do it. SHAME SHAME SHAME!!! Don't let LUO make you a victim too.
Do NOT attend LU online program. The recruiters will tell you that they have practicum facilities, and MSN advisors available whenever you needed. IT'S ALL A LIE! I have thousands of dollars invested in this horrible school. When it came time for my practicum courses, no one would help. I can't get anyone to return my calls. I had a problem with a professor. To cover her tracks, she replaced the grading rubrics, and lied. You can't file an,appeal until the course is over. They make money off of making students repeat courses. The MSN academic advisor won't return calls. The student advocate office won't help. The Dean of Nursing rejected my appeal without looking at a the documents I submitted proving discrimination and bias professor. I pray that God punishes these people for lying and cheating people. They are misrepresenting the Christian Church! There are no resources for online students!! I had a professor ridicule and degrade me because I shared that my daughters learning disabilities inspired me to be a nurse educator. The professor also said my professional goals were ridiculous. Now I know why nurses today aren't taught compassion. STAY FAR AWAY FROM SATAN UNIVERSITY!!
I received an academic warning from the university. They are very strict on their Online Master Degree program because your GPA has to be 3.0 and up, below that then it's either that they will put you on Academic Warning, Suspension or Dismissal. They don't understand that most people that are taking the online courses are either working individuals and people that would want to make a difference in their lives. After having at least close to 65 thousand dollar loan, they will just dismiss you like no other. I observed that they are very lenient with military families because they get $$$ from their GI bill. I know this is a Christian school, but you also have to think of people that are taking this classes are people who want to make a difference in their lives to make themselves better. This is what God wants. I just wish that they will round of the GPA but they wont. I am so sorry for this school.
I started Liberty University because of the great military benefits because they surpass many other schools with the criteria I wanted which was non-profit and private. The biblical worldview and aspect is within each and every course you take, but when you sign up for a Christian University this should be expected. Individuals who complain about this wonderful education establishment did not fully research what they were about and founded from. This school integrated modern education with biblical integration and you receive more of an education having to challenge yourself to do work including both aspects of the requirements rather than just typical textbook research. I am very grateful I decided to pursue this place and more than grateful I was there at graduation and met other people as committed as I am to faith and education.
