Liberty is committed to training champions for Christ around the world by offering online degree programs in business, counseling, criminal justice, education, nursing, Christian ministry and more.


Online College Academic Programs from a Leading Christian University

Offering hundreds of programs of study and specializations in a flexible online college program format, students can study at the certificate, associate, bachelors, graduate, and doctoral levels in areas the market demands most. Tens of thousands of students from around the globe seeking the best online college have decided to pursue their education through one of Liberty’s accredited online degree programs. Students in some of our programs will visit Liberty’s campus for one-week intensive classes. Students in our online degree programs may also tour our campus or join us for commencement ceremonies when their online degree program is complete.


Transferring into One of Liberty’s Online College Degree Programs is a Simple Process

We understand that you have worked hard for the college credit you have earned and desired to transfer as much as you can toward your degree. Liberty offers free transfer evaluations for students considering one of our online college degree programs. Continue your education with credit for prior learning and experience, such as military training, law enforcement experience, specific professional licenses, and other life experience. Transferring to one of Liberty’s online college programs will be a simple way to pursue your education with the flexibility you need at a price you can afford.


Online College Degree Programs

Liberty University is a nonprofit university, which means we work hard to keep tuition prices low to make your online education affordable. Tuition for our online degrees has not increased in three straight years. While many other online colleges have raised tuition, Liberty has been able to keep costs low as a non-profit university. We do not distribute our surplus funds to owners or shareholders, but instead, we use them to reinvest in technology and student support services to improve our residential and online academic programs.


Earn Your Accredited Online College Degree from a University who Values Christian Principles

Students from all walks of life choose Liberty to complete their online college degree program because our online programs are taught from a Christian worldview. Our late-founder Dr. Jerry Falwell used to say, “If it’s Christian, it ought to be better.” That’s why all of our certificate, associate, bachelors, graduate, and doctoral programs offer the highest accreditation available through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

Many of our online degree programs offer additional program-specific accreditation. Earning your degree through one of our online college programs provides the same accreditation you would receive if you decided to move your life and family to Lynchburg, Va. to complete one of our residential degrees.
