Liberty University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (208)
I began attending Liberty Christian University online in 2013. I attended each semester taking at least 9 hours. It has truly been a great experience, with great Godly professors that are understanding, interact with students and are very helpful. I will graduate with my Interdisciplinary Studies degree with a minor in Public Admin in December 2017. I cannot say enough about my experience with LUO! Yes if you live out of state it is costly but the fact is, you cannot find great education like you will receive at LUO! And it is very recognizable by many companies around the world.
I attended Liberty University online. I pretty much taught myself everything. The curriculum was great and I felt prepared for graduate school. I've used a great amount of what I learned in undergrad in my current graduate school. The cons are that there is no interaction with the professors (meaning it is difficult to get letters of recommendation) and little interaction other students and there are very few organizations designed for online students.
The Pre-law & Paralegal Studies are a joke and do nothing to prepare students for the realities of how law is actually applied and practiced in our American jurisprudence system today. The school is exclusively focused upon Jesus and how Christians are to "correctly believe." I know a few things about the legal system in our nation and the crap that Liberty pushes will not fly in a court of law. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere; I am in the process of initiating a transfer and sincerely feel Liberty was and is a waste of money and time.
I just graduate in May 2017 and Liberty University is a good school. I learned a lot in my courses and the professors are great, and everyone that works are very nice and helpful. Any online schools are going to be hard, but you have dedicated to do the work.
In the process of transferring from LU. Although the flexibility and ability to customize schedule is great, the lack of help and overall learning experience has not been great. As others have stated, the process is a circus and a huge hassle. Financial aid department was very unhelpful as well as my instructors. I have previously taken online classes elsewhere and never had this much of an issue.
Only gave them one star because there is no option to give them zero. Let me start off by saying I only went to Liberty for maybe 5 weeks yes you heard me right 5 smh. I only enrolled in two classes which were both religious based and required by the university to complete your degree plan. I had to withdraw from the classes due to work. I get financial aid so before I withdrew I called the school to ensure that I would not have any personal debt I was told no. Boy was that bologna because a few months down the line i received a bill for 2400 $ yes 2400 for 2 classes. So I called the school and was given the run around. I could not get intouch with any higher ups and received little to no help. Finally I was directed to an online forum used for student complaints and it was the same result NO HELP AT ALL. At that point I was beyond frustrated and just wanted to cut all ties with this school as soon as possible, So I saved and paid the 2400$ out of my own pocket. They still have yet to remove the holds off my account so I can get my transcript. Of course I am getting the run around not to mention their staff is unprofessional and never has answers for anything smh. DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL IT IS A JOKE and if you do you might as well prepare yourself for a circus.
Worst school and far from Christian!! Waste of money and time!! The majority of Liberty University's programs ARE NOT accredited which puts you at severe disadvantage. The course material is often very outdated and the majority of the schools online faculty are worthless. This college takes your money and basically forces you to teach yourself.
I really hate to give liberty a bad review. I had what I thought to be a decent experience with Liberty until I decided to transfer to a more affordable school. Upon doing research for another school I realized just how helpful the academic and financial planning administrators were at every other school I spoke with. Thus making me look back at Liberty wondering why they didn't do more to help me find financial resources to pay for college. They did nothing at all. I thought that was normal until I experienced something way better with other schools.
Singed up for online program. Very disappointed. I received very little help from online instructors. I found myself to be on my own with response from instructors slow and ineffective. I withdrew and got stuck for the tuition. Prior to enrolling I was being contacted by sales people from the school all the time. Once I signed up I couldn't get a response from anyone. You read the material, take a quiz, write a paper and have students comment on your work. wow.
Most recently, I graduated with an Ed.S. from Liberty after being enrolled for three years in the Ed.S. program. Previously, I had enrolled in the master's program as a young teacher. I failed a few courses and eventually dropped out. When I returned to LU online (7 years later), I was placed on academic warning. The SOE at Liberty gave me a second chance. I am so glad that they did. I realized that the best things in life are earned. Yes, the program is rigorous and time consuming. Yes, you are required to read, write, and discuss weekly. There are lengthy papers to write and then some courses, there are intense projects to complete. If you are dedicated and diligent you can do it. Nobody can do it for you, and you definitely should not rely on your professors. Online professors are moderators not teachers. They are there to guide your thought process and develop your critical thinking skills. Also, they will require you to follow APA requirements exactly. In conclusion, I received a great education from Liberty, and I am thankful for their graciousness in allowing me a second chance on my Ed.S. Eventually, I was able to earn a 3.8 GPA and my academic warning was dismissed. During my last class, the professor gave me an extension after my wife had a miscarriage. LU online is rigorous and rewarding, and the faculty is considerate and compassionate. Please consider the source as you read these reviews. Your life will greatly benefit in so many ways from your Liberty education.
