Liberty University’s online college offers Christ-centered programs to students from all backgrounds and traditions, and from every part of the globe. You can choose from more than 250 certificate, associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs in many sought-after specializations, including business, criminal justice, education, nursing, and more.
We started our residential program in 1971 with a mission of Training Champions for Christ. We were an early pioneer in distance education programs, now known as online college programs, beginning the Liberty University School of Lifelong Learning in 1985. As technology advanced, we were able to offer accredited college degrees completely online.
Liberty’s online college degree programs are taught in a flexible virtual classroom environment, allowing students to complete assignments on their schedules. Many of our online college degrees never require you to come to campus, and use an eight-week delivery format, with some exceptions in which a student is required to complete a minimum number of intensive courses on our beautiful campus in Lynchburg, Va.
Completing an online college degree from Liberty can help you reach your career goals. Our faculty members are leaders in the industry who use real-world experience and current industry practices to create in-depth curricula from a Christian worldview, which is rare among online colleges. Students benefit from coursework that is both challenging and engaging.
Starting a college degree online does not mean you have to sacrifice quality for flexibility. Our online college degree programs are regionally accredited as well as hold the highest accreditation available through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Additionally, many of Liberty’s online college degrees have earned optional, program-specific accreditation making your college degree more prestigious. Our accreditation webpage explains everything you need to know about SACS and program-specific accreditation offered in our online college degrees.
Enrolling in one of our online college programs also means you will earn your degree from a non-profit university whose online programs are ranked in the top five of more than 2,100 online colleges and universities for academic quality, affordability, and accessibility, setting you apart from others.
Earning an accredited online college degree does not have to cost a fortune. In fact, tuition for all undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs 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.
As a nonprofit Christian college that offers online degrees, Liberty truly invests in the lives of its students, which is why we strive to make our degree programs affordable with scholarships and financial aid. Transfer evaluations for students interested in transferring to Liberty are free so that you can make the best choice for your education.
Liberty University is so much more than an online bible college. While we do offer excellent programs at all collegiate levels in Biblical Studies, we know that students earning their college degree online are often working professionals striving to better themselves for the next step in their career. In fact, our students are earning online college degrees in psychology, criminal justice, information technology, and numerous certificate, associate, bachelors, masters, and doctoral programs. Students can earn their college degree online from the world’s largest Christian university while they continue working their jobs and raising their families.
If you are interested in earning your college degree online, you should consider becoming a Liberty student. You can contact an admissions specialist who can help you create a plan for your educational success. Our founder, Dr. Jerry Falwell, used to say, “If it’s Christian, it ought to be better.” We invite you to earn your college degree online and experience the difference Liberty has to offer.
