"I find this school to be average, AT BEST. The courses are rigorous for the 8-week classes. But many times, the assignments are pointless and time consuming, almost like “busy work.” I dont think this degree adequately prepares me for the education field. As an online student, the worst part of the program is the lack of support. You do not receive an actual advisor. The advising office for the online programs is call-center style. Meaning, you talk to someone different each time. So, while you’ll almost always get to speak to someone, these “advisors” are NEVER (emphasis on NEVER) helpful. Be prepared to get different answers each time you talk to someone, false information, and the runaround. The entire degree program, I had to juggle classes and being my own advisor. The lack of support can make the experience of getting your masters even more daunting than it already is. If I could do it all over again, I would no go to this school."

"After significant long research and comparison, I decided to go to Liberty to do my master's degree in teaching. LU was great until I did a few classes and was close to my student teaching. They started to ask for lots of different tests that my state doesn’t require and additional courses that nobody mentioned before. Their requirements are more challenging and complicated. Also, they have various gates that are hard to understand, and nobody available to explain them to you since you can only contact them through email. After paying thousands of dollars I had to drop and go to a different college. If you want to go with liberty you should do lots and lots of researches. Also, you need to have your depression medication with you in case you need it. To be fair, their classes were easy, and the teachers were great."

"Absolutely the worst experience. They only want your money and don't care about you at all. I read these "reviews" of 5 stars and absolutely know they are fake. It is a shame you can't come to get an authentic review. This school hounded me for weeks, calling constantly. Their program seemed like one I would like, so after more research, I signed up. (Apparently I did not do enough research). I def was not prepared for the workload. There is no consolidation of work- you do entire 20 chapters of text in 8 weeks- be ready for that. Professor went from polite and responsive in week 1 to outright rude in week 2. Don't sign into the class even once or you are charged full amount. There is no withdraw period. The stress this place has caused me is unforgivable."
This School Is a Joke

"I was looking for an online school to complete my school counseling degree and came upon LU. I submitted an online inquiry and an LU rep called me (the first of many daily phone calls). At no point in time during the inquire or admissions process was it explained to me that Christianity and biblical scripture would be used and needed for applying to coursework. While I have no issues with Christianity, I did not know that I would have to quote the bible and apply it to papers and projects. This school is very misleading, very disorganized and has a very UN-Christian mentality. They are all about the recruitment in and getting their bill paid. They will not hesitate to call you multiple times a day for you to get your admissions completed and your financial aid check in completed. I had to withdrawal from my courses because they were too religious and the course content was not going to teach me anything about counseling and only about the professor's Christian views. This "university" is a joke."

"Liberty University is truly the Chik-fil-a of education! From start to finish, help was always one call (and now one text) away. I will say the programs are rigorous but you learn so much from some really amazing people. The intensives are truly an invaluable experience. I highly recommend Liberty to anyone. The customer service is second to none!"

"Liberty University's online education program prepared me to take the next steps in my career. I was able to move into the principalship as a result and have enjoyed a rich and fulfilling experience thus far. I studied a host of practical topics including: curriculum and instruction, school law, school administration, supervision, and more. I highly recommend the program to any aspiring educational administrators who wish to take the next step in their career."

"I enrolled and began a course with Liberty. I feel completely tricked by the University. I logged onto Blackboard on my first day and found that the course was completely different than it was described. I realized in about 5 seconds that I did not want to take this course and called to drop it. Apparently you cannot drop a course once you have seen the content....for 5 seconds. So they made me withdraw and pay a large percentage for the class that I barely looked at and did not get anything out of. It looks great on paper, but is very different once you start classes. They definitely only have money in mind. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND ENROLLING AT LIBERTY UNIVERSITY IN VA."
Quality education but you must be motivated to succeed

"I found Liberty's graduate courses very challenging. I took my courses on-line, which required a tremendous amount of reading and dedication. It was particularly challenging as I worked a full time job and was a member of the Army National Guard while in school. The professors were very supportive and provided excellent feedback to my assignments and questions. I also gained quite a lot from other on-line students as they shared about their experiences in their teaching careers. The school is a decidedly Christian university, therefore expect to have a heavy emphasis on scripture. I greatly enjoyed this aspect of the school, but it may not be for everyone."

"School is a joke. Classes are too easy and the professors are all interchangeable automatons. At the end of the day, it's my fault for not doing enough research before enrolling in this fake college. So in that sense, I suppose I got what I deserve. Please stay away from this place."

"I have to say that for me this school was a great experience especially as a veteran. I found the program to be fairly rigorous. Online schooling is what you put into it. As a veteran, they are top notch. The tuition is literally cut in half for vets being about $250 per credit hour for graduate level courses. Those prices are cheaper than any for profit or non profit school that I know of. The main thing to remember with online schooling is that if you turn in your work on time, that's half the battle, and you should do fine. In addition, I really like how Liberty doesn't necessarily cap how many classes you can take in a two month term. I took 4 grad level courses my first term, and this helped me finish a Masters degree in 9 months. It was not easy, but I did it. Some schools curtail how many classes you can take at one time so that you keep getting charged. Overall, this is an excellent school. I thank the Lord that I was blessed to use my GI benefits to attend this great school."

"Liberty University Online will say anything to get you into their program. Anything. I was enrolling to get a certification to teach, which they can do. The problem is that they cannot do it for all subject areas and will lie about their ability at application and enrollment time. I really would have expected this kind of bait and switch sort of behavior from a for-profit "university" and not from a "Christian" university. The classes themselves were fine. If they meet your needs, great. Just make sure they are telling the truth. If you see 1 star, it's because I couldn't give zero."

"To those reading reviews by others stating Liberty is just like a "for profit" institution -- esp. veterans? Not in any way. Liberty Military Affairs office is first rate. They give undergraduate students book vouchers for free books up to $400 ea semester for veterans and spouses. They give you basically 50% off tuition -- yeah REALLY FOR PROFIT. not listen to them. They obviously had their own issues and are wanting to take it out on the university. I have finished my Bachelor's and am finishing Masters now. My husband, a retired Army officer also got his 2nd masters from Liberty and is graduating in the Spring with his Ed.S. and they are awesome. Not real professors? Hello !!! Yes they are. All graduate and most undergraduate have a doctorate and all have a masters in their content area. Many of them also teach residentially and at intensive courses. The Dean of Secondary Instruction taught my husband and an Associate Dean as well. We have had wonderful professors and their grading is not easy or inconsequential. They give great feedback and if you have something to say ...fill out the survey and follow up with your appropriate dept. I would recommend LU to ANYONE. They are top rate ! Oh and within 6 months of graduation with his masters my husband as working in his field making $10,000 more annually as a teacher than most teachers during their first year. I am working as well in a long term substitute position awaiting licensure."
