Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I HAVE BEEN AT LIBERTY FOT AT LEAST 3 YEARS NOW. I AM IN THE MASTERS PROGRAM. I STAYED IN THIS SCHOOL BECAUSE I HATE CHANGE BUT IM FINDING OUT THAT LIBERTY IS ALL ABOUT MONEY THEY DO NOT CARE. THE ADVISORS ARE TEENAGE COLLEGE KIDS WHO HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT MEANS TO WORK. SO ASKING FOR ADVISE IS USELESS THEY WILL REEFER YOU TO YOUR PROFESSOR WHO WILL NOT GET BACK TO YOU UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY DON'T NEED THEM ANYMORE

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2013

I attended Liberty from 2009-2012 for Finance. I'm one class from a BS in Finance. I had a business professor named Scott Hicks who failed me multiple times even though the work was completed. Hicks is a lowlife scumbag. If he doesn't like you, he will fail you, even with the work completed. I have not paid Liberty, and will never pay Liberty the tuition owed due to the fact this piece of trash still works there. I am having to start my degree over at a different school. Avoid Liberty at all cost. Not very Christian, as they only care about the money, not students.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2016

Quality of education to me was subpar. Teachers generally were unfamiliar with online technology. Syllabi were recycled year to year. A handful of professors cared greatly. Majority appeared over-worked and apathetic. They have a habit of assigning non-Christian topics and asking us to write about the Christian-ness of that topic, which was very awkward.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Let me start by saying this school is perfect for full time college students or full time mid level job holders. I found the online program to be a lot of work which is a good thing but what I found discouraging was the lack of professors involvement. When I had questions or concerns I would e-mail each professor only to get either a response after the assignment deadline or no response at all. Writing a passage Scripture every week shouldn't be the only form of communication. I didn't really enjoy my first semester but decided try one more semester needless to say this will be my last semester. I will attend my local university and finish my MBA. Besides corporate America prefer local degrees then online degrees it is sad but so true.

Degree: Theology/Theological Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Liberty University Online was great. I chose to go to Liberty while taking time off from work to deal with a health issue. The online classes gave me the opportunity to progress with limited physical capabilities at the time. This was the 3rd university that I attended and the first that focused in on teaching you how to think instead of only giving you facts. Regardless of the field of study, our worldview shapes how we receive and understand information. Liberty's encouragement to evaluate and develop awareness of your foundational worldview equips their students with the ability to maximize their best gift to the world........an authentic self! This experience was priceless!

Degree: Health Aide
Graduation Year: 2016

I just started at Liberty and I must say I Hate this University. The people their do not take the time to help new students. All they do is give students the run around. The advisors tell you one thing and the instructors tell you something different. Please do not attend to school, I wish I had stayed at Ashford university.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Liberty University introduces a professional graduate degree program that requires you to work diligently, interact with other students and your professors in this online format. Where else could you earn a professional degree online for this price and get a PhD's who offer insight and encouragement? I looked at Wake Forest and their online program was $75,000! Sure you may have a professor who is balancing their private practice and is teaching 4 courses but as a graduate student you are expected to immerse yourself in higher education! So, suck it up and quit complaining! Do you wish to advance your knowledge base with the same texts used at Harvard and Penn? I think so...but you are paying 1/4 of the cost so there are some trade offs. Liberty University has high standards....I graduated with distinction (3.9 GPA) and that's a high bar for any University. I had my papers professionally bound resulting in three volumes (650 pages) of which I am very proud. This program stretched me to high levels of performance which increased my capacity to augment the lives of others.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2010

They are a very Christian school UNTIL it comes to money. I sincerely feel that Liberty University robbed me of over $3,500.00. Let me explain. I had entered the Master's Program and did complete financial check in, but before the semester started my father was injured bad and required around the clock care. I notified my instructors and attempted to withdrawl but LIBERTY's system was down. After a while I started getting collection calls from what sounded like Liberty on campus students. I attempted to explain the situation and that I had in fact withdrawn from the classes before the semester started. I was informed I could appeal. I appealed and got nothing. Finally I went into my account and saw where the appeal had been denied. Denied by who? No idea. It simply said "DENIED". So i have had to make $386.02 a month payments for a year with having nothing to show for it. I even told the people calling I would send my Father's medical records to prove I wasn't trying to take advantage of them. Nothing! Liberty is all about God and your fellow man, until it comes to money.

Degree: Theology/Theological Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Simply put, Liberty Online offers a rigorous and beneficial graduate experience. As a senior pastor of a busy church, a husband, and father of five, the ability to obtain a degree in this format is invaluable. Of course, each instructor has their own personality, but all in all, the responsiveness and grading was very reasonable and helpful. Accreditation at a seminary is important in my estimation, so Liberty opens the door to spiritual growth and career progress. Most importantly, I am far more equipped with the knowledge I have obtained at this outstanding institution. I would recommend the online program to anyone without hesitation.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2014

I had a terrible time with Liberty University. I started school there in 2009, and when I had about 90 credits, I had to take a class for the finance concentration. I had a professor, S.H., who failed me on two occasions, because he clearly had a personal problem with me. I had a 3.3 or 3.4 at the time. After I took the class a third time, due to his unprofessional and deliberately antagonistic ways, I decided I would leave Liberty and go to another school. I sent several emails that the school ignored, and I decided I would not pay the balance owed until they rectified the situation. They have done NOTHING to help me. The only thing this school cares about is MONEY. The Christian aspect is a joke. STAY AWAY.
