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.
I enrolled at this school in in 2015 coming from another college. I found out about this college from someone that I knew who had been going to this college. They let me transfer most of my credits and I had a great time. Here I am four classes away from my bachelor's degree and I ran out of aid to borrow. What total bullshit. Al of you reading this comment. Liberty is a great college, but they are to dam expensive. You can go to a public college or even community college almost for free or just using pell grant money. Now I have to find a way to pay for my education or I cannot graduate and much less finding a job with my degree. They should tell you ahead of time that when you go to this college, you will hit the limit for money you can borrow and then you will not be able graduate until you pay off the rest of the tuition. Education is already high enough in this country. If you really want to go to college, move to Germany and enroll in college where it is free.
This school was the biggest waste of an education. The teachers and faculty at this school do not know what they are doing. For my major specifically the program is small and not run well. Some of the worst advisers. They will make sure that your first year you only take classes that are not transferable to other schools so that you get stuck at the University. They will not have you start off taking the classes that you actually need to for your major. This makes it extremely difficult to transfer. Students who go to this school do not have a drive for education also.On top of this the community at the school is not very good. Unless you live on the hill you most likely will struggle making friends because it is hard to get involved with anything. Unless you are a bible, nursing, or physiology major I would not recommend coming here. Go to a college that specializes in what you want to do.
I greatly enjoyed attending Liberty University and its seminary, which is now called a School of Divinity. I learned a lot, the teachers were honest and fair, the cost was reasonable, and the students were wonderful. My major complaint is that they did not take initiative to personally help me find a job. I had to fill out paperwork, go to career fairs, read through job listings, ad infinitum. Never, however, did they have someone look over my credentials, consider my career goals, and make the phone calls necessary to get me a job. After I paid thousands and thousands of dollars and earned a 3.98 GPA over 2 degrees and 7 years, they never recommended me to a single job in the field I was studying. Personally, I believe that when a student aces out a program, the school should have taught you everything you need to walk into a job.
Liberty University is amazing. The main campus is beautiful and the people are amazing. However, avoid the aviation program like the plague. I have been in the program for 2 years now and I am constantly s****** over. Nobody likes anyone, and you get no respect. It is horribly run and they make horrible decisions with students. Some of the instructors are great but others are very shallow and egotistical. I would recommend the school of Liberty, just not the aviation program, obviously.
If you are looking for a degree that is going to help you learn accounting skills, this is not it. I graduated from this institution with a masters degree in 2016 and couldn't be more dissatisfied with the level of education I received. My GPA was 4.0 and I took nothing away from Liberty University other than borderline carpal tunnel from writing so many ridiculous papers and forum posts on the subject of ACCOUNTING. -There is virtually no interaction with instructors -Practically 0 content is provided by liberty university. Do not expect any lectures to supplement the text material -Your assignments for every class will always be a few forum posts a week in which you have to unnaturally cite only peer-reviewed papers in the very narrowly researched field of accounting (because it is not a science), and a 10-12 pg. paper with 10 peer-reviewed sources Yes, I do have a job in accounting, but I have learned far more from accounting websites than I took away from Liberty University. I don't even put this degree on my resume anymore. Other majors at Liberty may be different but my experience with accounting was that the program is devoid of value. It is very easy to get admitted and the tuition is affordable in relation to other schools but please don't take this bait. You will probably end up spending $25K or so on a master's that isn't worth $.25. Spend more and get your degree from a higher quality institution where you have a chance to learn some accounting. There are many online options out there in which the faculty has actually developed content and interacts with students.
I just say, I couldn't have choosen a better college for my educational needs. Liberty has exceeded my expectations. I am blessed to have had an opportunity to be a student at Liberty. The professors teach with their heart, they are motivating, and inspiring. I am grateful to call Liberty University my Alma mater.
I attended Liberty University online to pursue my Doctor of Education in Education Leadership. My program was mostly online, although I did attend four intensive classes on campus in Lynchburg. Prior to attending LU, I had already earned three degrees. I have 2 Masters degrees: Univ of Colorado-Colorado Springs (History) and East Carolina Univ (Education). I have a BA from Shepherd Univ (Education). I have also taken classes at WVU and CSU-Long Beach. All that said, LU is one of the best schools I have attended in terms of academic rigor and quality of the education I received. The professors in the School of Education were fantastic. The student support is amazing as I always received an answer to any question within 24 hours. Now it does have a focus on Christianity, and some of my classes required some assignments to incorporate Judeo-Christian ideals, especially in leadership and ethics classes. As I moved into quantitative statistics and research for my dissertation, there were no such requirements. Many students I encountered throughout my program had varying political and religious beliefs and that was never a problem in any of the classes I attended on campus or online. I really can not say enough good things about Liberty University. It was simply a great experience.
Please "RUN' not walk away from liberty University. The advisor told me I would graduate in 2018 , but it ended up they misinformed about more classes. This is only after I gained 120 credits along with transfer credits which is all you need to graduate. The social work gates are supposedly needed. That is fine. You cannot take them together. You have to take 3 unnecessary classes along with them. That equals 4 semesters. This is intolerable. When questioned they steady are asking about money!!!!
I graduated from the online degree program. The instruction and curriculum has given me the foundation for my future career. I loved the lessons and assignments and how they were tied together with biblical principles. I agree with other reviewers that no one who applies to Liberty (a renowned Christian college), should be the least bit surprised of this. If they are uncomfortable, then they should not have applied for admission.
