Ashley - 10/6/2018
Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018
"I had a great experience with the educational aspect of this program. I worked part-time while doing the program and was able to balance work and classes. I also received affirmation from practicum and internship supervisors about how highly prepared I was coming from this program. The biggest challenge was finding a practicum site, which students are required to do on your own. The university will find you two internship placements. The M.Ed. School Counseling program is CACREP accredited (Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs), which is an asset in applying for jobs. I had four interviews and received two employment offers within six weeks of completing the program, with three other interview offers even after I accepted a job. My main reason for writing a review is to express deep concerns about the university president's outspoken political endorsements. As the highest-level representative for a school that advertises a Christ-centered education, his lack of discernment, humility, and wisdom in how he represents the university troubles me. His focus seems to be on promoting a political party regardless of the character of those in the party, and silencing those who speak out against his particular views. Overall, what I tend to tell people is that I had a great experience with the course material, professors, and preparation for the job market, but I can't wholeheartedly recommend this university due to the president's lack of distinction between a Christian university and a political party."

"Liberty is one of the worst universities in the states with the worst student experience. The worst part of the University is its president he continues to prove his racist and ugly personality that represents the University's operating principles."

"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 did not have a problem with the program of study I was in. I had an awful experience with Student Finance. I think that they are very deceptive. I was told one thing and led to believe something about a bill (for instance fees for walking at graduation) and then charged anyway. My parents were on the phone constantly with them and were given the "run around". There are 1,000 staff that can wear you down and just tell you something and then they do what they want to do. I believe this Christian university is deceptive in their tactics and are cold hearted."

Graduation Year: 2017
"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."

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019
"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."

Liberty University - 7/8/2018
Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2018
"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."

David Gifford - 7/5/2018
Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

Peyton - 6/15/2018
Degree: Aviation
Graduation Year: 2020
"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."

Don't do it - 6/7/2018
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."
