LU Online ranked No. 1 in industry study

August 18, 2010 : University Advancement Staff

In the last few years, Liberty University has become a fixture on various industry rankings of online schools, receiving high marks on several independent comparisons. This year, LU Online continues the trend with a first-place ranking by MyCollegesandCareers.com, an online resource that helps college-bound individuals identify and compare schools and weigh their options for higher education.

Since 2008, LU Online has been ranked among the top 10 online universities twice by the Online Education Database (OEDb), ranked No. 3 in a similar study conducted by “The Journal,” a technology education publication, and third again by BestOnlineColleges.net.

“Liberty University has become a pioneer in the use of technology to change the traditional methods of delivery in higher education,” said Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr.  “My father used the newest technologies of his day to preach the gospel by becoming one of the first television evangelists. We are now continuing that tradition with Liberty University Online. Provost Dr. Ronald Godwin, Vice Provost Dr. Ronald Hawkins and the faculty members who have worked so tirelessly to create quality online academic programs at Liberty University have helped Liberty University change the face of higher education in this country.”
