What is a Nonprofit Online College?

Staying true to its mission to encourage academic excellence, Liberty’s online program focuses on the training of competent and skilled graduates. Nonprofit colleges do not have to worry about paying dividends to their shareholders. Instead, Liberty University invests that money in our online college degrees.
