Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Pastoral Counseling and Specialized Ministries, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Marriage and Family Therapy/Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

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!!

Degree: Christian Studies
Graduation Year: 2020

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.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2017

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.
