"I HAD SOME GOOD PROFESSOR AT LIBERTY ONLINE. I THOUGHT IT WAS THE BEST SHCOOL EVER. AFTER COMPLETING 112 CREDIT HOURS MY CLASS COME TO A COMPLETE STOP, BECAUSE OF RACISM. MY CLASS WAS CANCEL FOR NO REASON. THE COUNSEL ANGELA ASK ME TO LIE AND SAY THAT I WAS SICK. I COULD NOT BELIEVE THIS SCHOOL WAS PLAYING THE RACE CARD DURING MY LAST 12 CREDIT HOUR BEFORE GRADUATING. THEY ASKED ME TO PAY 1200.00 AND LATER 1900.00 FOR CLASSES THAT THEY CANCELED WITHOUT MY PERMISSION DURING CLASS SIGN-IN WHEN RECOGNIZING THAT MY VOICE WAS OF AN ARFRICAN-AMERICAN. I AM SURE THIS RACE CARD HAVE BEEN PLAYED BEFORE, AND WILL SOON COME TO LIGHT WITH OTHER STUDENTS OF COLOR. I'VE NEVER HAD FINANCIAL AID PROBLEMS. I AM STILL STUGGLING TO PAY THE LAST 600.00 TO GET MY TRANSCRIPT MOVE TO ANOTHER SCHOOL."

"I attend Liberty University Online. The undergraduate experience was phenomenal. I loved learning how to manage my time and study habits in the mandatory introductory course which is designed to lay the foundation for excellence. Liberty is a faith based school. Their professors pray with you and promote the development of critical thinking every step of the way. They encourage their students to be champions for Christ and to adhere to a set of moral principles that promote integrity. Liberty has many programs of study that give students the opportunity to work at their own pace of development for academic success. I encourage you to call and speak with an academic advisor. They are available to assist and answer any question you may have in every step of the journey."

"Liberty University was an excellent university that provided a Christ centered focus on everything taught. It strengthened my faith as well as provided the necessary education to meet program needs and prepare me for a graduate program. It is a large university that offers programs with multiple majors and in no less loses in creditability. The professors provide guidance and mentorship but challenge students in faith and academic growth. I recommend Liberty University for any student as it has a diverse student body which mirrors Christ's church which is made up of all people groups not only in in America but from peoples across the world."

"I attended Liberty University online from 2015 to 2017. The flexibility the program provided me was invaluable as I worked throughout my studies and moved several times with the military. I can confidently say without the flexibility, I would not have been able to graduate in a standard amount of time. With that said, anyone considering the program should know that there is a very strong Biblical element to all of the classes, as one would expect from a Christian University. Additionally, my guidance counselors called me more often than I appreciated. While this may be helpful to some, it was not to me. I dont have any complaints regarding the professors. They did not stand out as good or bad to me. I was always satisfied with the speed at which they put grades in and their willingness to explain why I received the marks I did and/or correct grades if necessary. Overall, it was a great school for my undergraduate work."

"Liberty University is an excellent school. The staff is amazing, very knowledgeable and are actively involved with the students. The school is also very generous with needs of active duty personnel and do their best to accommodate. The book stipend is a great help, which most schools do not offer."

"I finished my bachelors degree in psychology/Christian counseling in August 2017. I completed all of my schooling online and honestly, overall everything went well. All of the online professors (except for maybe 1 or 2) were fabulous and understanding. If you want help or have questions, you yourself have to be proactive in getting your questions answered. Yes it is online, so you have to be willing to put in the time to read, study and do your work without anyone prodding your or holding your hand to get it done. All of the course requirements are available before you sign up to take the class, IF YOU READ THE SYLLABUS. I have had no problems with financial aid at all. The student academic advising for the undergrad department has always been very helpful in answering my questions and concerns. Overall, I would recommend this online university and education program to anyone. The best part for me was that the classes also incorporated my faith into my education. My relationship with Christ has continued to grow as well as my learning. I am continuing my education with LUO for a masters degree in counseling."

"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."

"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."

"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 can not sing Liberty University's online praises higher. Not too many schools offer a science degree in psychology instead of arts, not to mention the fact that this military specific degree is great for working with the military population. I've never had any issues with financial aid and was offered a lovely discount being a veteran's spouse (He was active duty when I first started), I am able to get ahold of my academic advisor easily, and the professors are first rate. Being Catholic I was nervous about going to a Southern Baptism university for a minute, but I really like that even though faith is part of the learning process I am not torn down about being Catholic. I am applying to USC's MSW program now and they tell me that a lot of their students graduated with their bachelors from Liberty's online programs. Fantastic education, you won't regret your choice in Liberty."
