Liberty University Online Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (198)
At Liberty University Online, I was able to pursue my degree while being at home and taking care of my wounded veteran husband and our son. I felt that I was supported by the faculty and staff. Liberty also helps military families reach their academic goals by offering tuition discounts.
Just about there and I couldn't be happier. As a late bloomer, engaging in Graduate studies started out as a real challenge. In the 20+ years since graduating with my Bachelor's Degree (in Civil Engineering) so much has changed. Liberty's academic advisers, and professors alike, have been incredibly helpful over the past year. Liberty's library is second to none. Although I've only used the library online for academic research, if there is a needed resource not available through Liberty the staff will help you quickly locate and secure the same. I have to again mention my academic advisers. They call on a regular basis, at least monthly, and I usually have some off the wall question or we just chat about my academic progress. Very encouraging bunch. The advisers are so patient and so helpful. I should mention the the curriculum which is spot on.Everything I've studied has direct relevancy to my upcoming twilight career as a Hospital/Hospice Chaplain.
Liberty University is in all tense and purposes a good school for undergraduates. However, for Graduate programs I should have gone to the local school that I graduated from. Liberty is no help for finding a facility that will take you in for your Practicum or Internship since the majority of the online students are out of State from Virginia. Furthermore the legal department has to approve any contracts between a cite that you might find that will take you for the Practicum or Internship and then the Liberty Legal department can change the contract requirements at any given point even if you only have one week till the practicum/internship application deadline. Oh yes you have to apply for those two courses, it's an application process within the degree program and it is a major head ache. If your looking at this school for any grad program that requires a practicum or field work, look closer to home and avoid this school at all costs!!
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.
There are many different programs of studies for residents or online. It was really easy to apply for grad school. After receiving your Bachelor degree. It has a really user friendly online courses. It is military friendly. If you are using TA, it qualifies
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.
Liberty University Online has been a wonderful experience for me. I recently graduated with my undergraduate degree and am beginning gradate classes this semester. The academic excellence, flexible scheduling, comparatively low tuition, and support all were exactly what I needed to be able to continue my life and gain practical work experience while earning my fully regionally accredited degree. I love that I am not tied down to specific class times, and also, because liberty allows for CLEP credit transfers, I am not tied down to large student debts like some of my friends who attend state universities! Liberty is a great school and I am extremely happy to be an alumni and continuing student!
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.
