Man on computer seeking online support

Liberty University Online Student Support

The Academic Support Office for Liberty University Online and Graduate Studies Programs wishes to see the student body of Liberty University succeed in their academic endeavors. Below are some resources that are available to assist you, the student, in achieving academic success.

Assessment Tests

Liberty University Online has designed English and Math placement tests for undergraduate students, which are a tool to help make sure that you are placed in the best level of English and Math to help you be successful as you begin classes at Liberty University Online. Take our assessment test first, before you register for Math and English.

Introduction to Online Learning

To help our students become acclimated to the online learning environment, we offer an “Introduction to Online Learning” class. This course is an 8-week long class designed to help you take tests, complete discussion boards, write papers and interact with future classmates, all with the goal of helping you build your skills for online learning. Our hands on professors help you be successful by walking you through the steps for each assignment. Successful completion of this class will earn you a three credits course applied to your transcript.

Writing Resources

These Writing Resources will assist you with basic composition and formatting skills. Additional resources are available through the Online Writing Center (OWC). General writing assistance in the form of presentations and worksheets can be found on the Writing Aids portion of the GWC site, as well as a listing of other available Web Resources.

Online Library

Liberty University Online students have access to more than 73,000 full text journal titles, as well as 105,000 electronic books through the online library. These are excellent resources for writing papers, and they are available to you at our library research portal 24 hours a day, from the convenience of your home or office. If you should happen to need a journal title or a book that is not available from us electronically, we can see if it is available to you in our print collections, or we can borrow it for you from other libraries. Your Online Librarian is ready to help you whenever you need it.

Study Aids

The Liberty University Bruckner Learning Center (BLC) has compiled resources to assist students with study skills and test preparation. The below resources will give you some general assistance in these areas.
