Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Liberty University Online allowed me to finish my 4 year undergraduate program in 3 years. I am hoping it can do the same for me in my graduate program. The teachers are extremely friendly and always available to help if needed. Online discussion boards allow you to be interactive even if you have a shy personality. The discussion boards also allow you to explore and respond to your classmates opinions and views that are important and relevant to the course. I've had a great experience with LU Online and highly recommend it to anyone that is considering enrolling in an online graduate program.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

I am taking online classes, and when I have had to call with questions or problems they have been more than helpful. They go out of their way to make sure that all of your questions get answered correctly. I believe that they are truly concerned with what happens in your life. I am very pleased so far with Liberty University. The training is top notch!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

At Liberty University online, the commitment of the staff and faculty to each student is evident. Even though the school is large and I attend online, I still feel very close to some of the professors and staff are always very helpful. I like that I seldom have to travel to the campus. I wish there were satellite campuses nearby so that I did not have to travel so far for intensives.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

When I enrolled I did not understand that ATS accreditation is necessary to pursue Ph.d studies at other theological seminaries. Moreover, Liberty's Academic Pre Ph.D M.Div program does not help you meet the standards set by Princeton and Notre Dame to be competitive or at the very least par with other applicants to the Ph.D program. These two schools require Greek and Hebrew along side a reading knowledge of German and French. Liberty does not offer German and French at the graduate level. To say the least, I will be transferring in December.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that it is a Christian based university which is very important to me considering I am pursuing a career as a Christian based grief counselor. The cons, I do not have any at this time.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The best part of the Liberty Online programming is the opportunity to complete a Masters degree while still working. There is flexibility to complete the work around a busy schedule. The professors are very engaged in the classrooms and are positive and encouraging throughout the course. Biblical principles are included in disscussion boards with fellow classmates. The con of Liberty's Online program is no grant money is available. For someone who can't afford to pay for school this becomes very expensive and makes a lot of people have to chose not to pursue higher education. Liberty is a large private school with a lot of money...over 80,000 online students. I would think that grants should be available for hard working students.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

I think the pros of going to Liberty University Online is the affordability. Also they call their online students at least every other week to make sure the courses are going well. I also like the fact that faculty sent you emails in a timely fashion. I have nothing negative to say about my graduate program.

I feel that there is a distance between the teachers and students forcing a harder connect to be made.
