Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

I love that my graduate programs allows me to work at my own pace since I am a working mother and need the flexibility to go to get my Masters. The cons would be that most of the scholarships that are offered are mostly for resident students.

Degree: Accounting

This school provide a balance of Christian and secular views. The instructors do not force their views on you but allow you to be free to express your views and make a your own decisions.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

I have been attending Liberty University Online since fall 2011. I have only a couple classes left but have run out of financial aid. Attending classes online has enabled me to work the varied hours my job requires and still enables me to work on my Masters program. Liberty University Online offers assistance for class work with tutor.com which have helped me better my grades and complete assignments.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The University is organized, beautiful and overly friendly. The faculty cares about each student and often sends gifts, postcards and "check-up" calls to the online students. More importantly, Liberty is able to provide: flexibility to graduate students that are juggling full-time jobs, discounts to students that are in the military service, blend religious emphasis with secular studies and provide around the clock technical service for all her online members. There are many social activities that are available, such as musicals, sporting events, concerts, religious speakers and educational seminars. An important con, however, is that the program is more geared towards a degree than education. There is limited interaction with faculty, the competition is very minimal, the integral teacher feedback is decidedly missing and the education quality can certainly be increased. Another con with regards to the online degree, is that because tests are done online, there is no teacher that can interpret a vague test question. Because a class is shortened to eight weeks, teachers often do not have enough time to adequately grade and provide feedback on assignments. It must be admitted that these specific cons will be prevalent in the majority of online degrees.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Liberty provides a Christian perspective to the world of business. A world that, sometimes, is not open to Christian principles and believes there is no room for a Christian in a work environment that can be brutal. However, Liberty University teaches how Godly principles can be applied to every facet of life and that everyone's needs can be accommodated without forcing Christian beliefs on others. Liberty University shapes students as Christians and into knowledgeable businessmen and women.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel that Liberty University is an outstanding University that fulfills the desired educational quality and then exceeds expectation. Also, Liberty University is a Christian university, placing Jesus Christ at the center of all courses. The tuition prices are outstanding, especially for an out-of-state student such as myself.
