Discouraged - 4/2/2019
Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2018
"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."

Degree: Communications (Health)
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

LaToya McLean - 3/29/2019
Degree: Military Science
Graduation Year: 2011
"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."

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2019
"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."

Stephanie Tucker - 3/26/2019
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

responsive professors - 3/11/2019
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2020
"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."

John - 3/9/2019
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2020
"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."

Tim Holland - 3/2/2019
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2011
"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."

Degree: Religious Studies

"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."
