"Liberty University has an exceptional online program that fully meets the needs of today's work force. My degree plan has increased my knowledge of general business practices, communication, psychology, and basic human development. As a project manager in the State of Ohio Department of Mental Health, this knowledge has been crucial in the development and management of projects for mental health hospitals. The courses are easy to navigate and full of information. There are no longer book fees for undergraduate courses as all courses utilize online material. Overall, Liberty University Online is a great school that provides up to date information for today's careers."

"This school is awful and they will fail you for not using biblical quotes on an assignment. The professors some where help and some were not help stating they don't know what you are asking. If you called advising they referred you to financial aid and if you call financial aid they refer you to advising. Filed a grievance due to in correct information provided to me and no one ever reached out to me."

"Incredibly thorough program and very helpful professors. I worked through each class feeling confident in what I was taught. If there was any time I was struggling, Liberty offered online tutoring programs that helped me under what I was struggling with."

"The professors and faculty at Liberty University give 110% effort to make sure their students succeed. The love and joy of the Lord is so present in the hearts of both the faculty and students at Liberty that it reflected positively on my experience as a student there. While Liberty may be underestimated for being an accredited institution, I think that the faculty is very knowledgeable and educated in the classes they teach and help the students learn as much and as best that they can."

"I read these reviews and find them interesting. Yes, this school is absolutely a Christian University. With that, you will be required to cite the Bible within assignments. Also, the school administration is fairly right wing and conservative. This sprinkles down to the entire school is right wing. As long as you know those two things first, and are okay with them, this is an amazing school. I love it here. I finished my Bachelors in 2018, about to graduate in May 2019 with my Masters and immediately start on my PhD. I have thought about transferring out to just get new scenery, but I continued to stay. The campus is amazing, everyone is friendly and helpful, overall, amazing. One issue is the academic advisors. Do your own research on the degree you are interested in. These advisors do not know every single degree program, what classes they require, what transfer credits are going to be applied, or even exactly what order courses need to be taken. Because of this, I recommend reaching out to the individual school (Helms school of government, for example) and asking for clarification for specific degree program questions. Again, I absolutely recommend it!"

"The IS/IT program is still fairly new and developing at this school, but I learned a ton from my degree nonetheless. Most of the professors are very laid back and are always willing to help out if you reach out to them and ask for help. Unfortunately, due to how new the program is, many classes are only offered online. As I was a database cognate, my high level Oracle classes were only offered online as none of the residential professor felt confident teaching those classes yet. Although, I believe that as this program develops the next few years it will improve a ton. Just a heads up, the financial department is an absolute drag at this school. Bottom line, submit your FAFSA early or at least on time. Also, if you are not comfortable with constant integration of the Bible in every class, this may not be the right school for. I was surprised to find that even many of my IT classes required some sort of Biblical integration for the projects."

"Liberty University is a farce. The inly thing you donin business classes is read the Bible and write about the Bible, peppered with a couple business articles. If you are a Bible thumper, you will love it. If you actually want to learn business, it is a waste of money and time. This school should not be accredited. If you ate kot Christian you are firced to qrite papers proclaiming you are Christian or you fail."

"In addition to its many thorough academic programs, Liberty University has a very large, beautiful campus and numerous activities. People are good-natured and friendly. The staff is approachable and easy to engage and the classes - at least the ones I have been in on campus - are relatively small."

"Liberty is a great school, especially for those who are either active duty military or family member. I was able to earn my degree online while I served on active duty. Their tuition is reasonable and they go the extra mile to offer as much financial aide, discounts and affordable payment plans as possible. There were a lot of books to order during my undergrad, but they were always available through the school or other sources. I was also impressed with the degree offerings at Liberty and their willingness to help me find a program that would maximize the credits I already had form previous schools."

"The professors at this university care a lot about their students. However, the overall academic rigor is not present in the coursework. I was able to complete my degree with a GPA of 3.77 with minimal effort in comparison to my completion of Honors and AP coursework in highschool."

"Liberty University provided me with an amazing, top-of-the-line education. My professors were (and still are) well-experienced in the subjects they teach. I did not have one professor who did not first begin with real-world experience prior to becoming a professor. If I were to complete my degree all over again, I would not change schools or programs or professors."

"I had earned a bachelors and doctorate from different institutions before pursing a masters at Liberty. The online program is wonderful. Challenging yet flexible. The registrar is extremely helpful as is the tech support call center. The online program at Liberty has strict academic admissions requirements which is why, I feel, this school has one of the top online programs in the nation. Being an older student I needed guidance re navigating the online site, and Liberty provides quite a few videos to help familiarize one with the online library, help with references for papers, and overall understanding of the website."

"I am pursing my degree online, overall I've had a positive experience. I attended from 2012-2014 and took a break before returning in 2018. Since I last attended, I've noticed some positive changes in the online platform. There are more labs, more interaction with other students, additional study materials and more lectures that are actually recorded from the Liberty Campus in Lynchburg. The student services seems to have improved as well. It is a Private Christian University and although most textbooks are of secular nature, the supplemental textbooks do present Liberty's Christian worldview, but I don't find this aspect of the University to be overwhelming in a fundamentalist way; it's just kind of a typical private Christian school from my perspective. Some of the courses have been quite challenging, but that's expected. From the start the syllabus defines all expectations clearly, so no complaints there. I will say the online format seems more geared toward people that are mature enough to handle the compressed workload - there is no shortage of homework, reading assignments, quizzes and exams. It is really good to see that they are putting more effort into improving the online programs."

"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."

"Liberty does not display Christianity.You are convinced to enroll, but after classes start, is when you see the true nature of this University. The professors are not very helpful, and are quick to refer to tutoring which are not very helpful either."
