Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I’m currently enrolled in the online Professional Counseling program at Liberty University and I absolutely love it! It’s more affordable than the other online school that I considered and it has other features, like a small class size, that are important to me. The highlight of the program is the professors. They truly are gems. The professors that I’ve encountered have been accessible and extremely encouraging. They give assignments that are challenging and will promptly answer any questions that you might have. I hope that this response was useful for anyone considering the Professional Counseling program at Liberty University.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2013

A pro is that my specific program is conveniently online. A con is that it requires double work because the classes is only 8 weeks.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

Liberty University is an outstanding institution to further your education. Though they have many outstanding qualities, I will have to say their social aspects really put them over the top. Due to the Christian environment, not that they don't have any incidents, the environment appears more conducive to learning. As to negatives, though it really isn’t out of touch, due to being a private school, rates are somewhat higher than others. Though Liberty does seek out ways to find assistance, there still appears to be a higher cost than most other schools.

The seminary program at Liberty University offers students a challenging, enlightening experience that truly equips champions for Jesus Christ. Through interesting lectures, capable and educated professors and well-rounded course materials, my graduate experience at Liberty has been life-changing!

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

Liberty's online program makes attending classes much easier than the traditional campus method. It allows the flexibility that is needed by working adults who do not live near a major university campus to further their education. The price is competitive with other major universities as well. The downside is that the school offers virtually NO financial aid assistance to graduate students except in the form of student loans. This can make the process difficult for those of us who have proved their work ethic and value, but have chosen to work in a profession that is not known for lucrative salaries, ie public education.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

As a non traditional student, I love the flexibility of the program and overall the professors are true to their profession as well as to their students within the learning environment. Because my degree plan is new, however, some of the new professors that were hired to facilitate the program are not well acquainted with Liberty or the Blackboard system. This makes the learning environment stressful for the student.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: They are accredited and certified, offer on-line courses and degrees, technology is awesome, provide bookstore vouchers for books, instructors are accessible and respond promptly, provides inspirational/Christian encouragement, and more. Cons: Campus is extremely huge, must attend 3 classes on campus (on-line degrees), financial disbursements takes longer (14-25 days post sixth semester credit).

Degree: Social Sciences

My online experience has been very good. The classroom is easy to navigate, provides plenty of resources, and communicating with faculty and staff has been quick and easy. I have no complaints so far after 11 months of study.
