Online Academy Tuition and Fees

Tuition Rates

At Liberty University Online Academy (LUOA), we strive to provide flexible, affordable academic programs that can help each student reach their full potential. No matter what grade level your student is in, each course is billed at $549 for a full-year course. While you can choose to pay one lump sum, we also offer flexible payment plans that allow your student to access LUOA’s courses for a low monthly rate. A non-refundable, interest-free $50 payment plan fee is assessed upon acceptance of a payment plan, and the $50 is factored into the monthly payment section below:



*Enhanced Courses are available at the High School level for an additional $99 per course (full year) or $49.50 for a half-year.

**Your high school student will take either 6 or 7 courses per year. 6.5 is an average of the two.



Tuition Rates for Partially Completed Courses

Perhaps your student began the school year somewhere else, but you’ve decided that it’s time to explore other options. Pending a records review, LUOA allows your student to join in most courses at the 2nd quarter, 2nd semester, and 4th quarter marks. For students who enroll accordingly, tuition is prorated and outlined below.






Tuition Rates for Dual Enrollment Courses

As part of our commitment to making education affordable, our dual enrollment courses allow your student to earn college credit for a reasonable price. While a semester of courses at a 4-year college can cost thousands of dollars, LUOA offers college-level courses for a much lower rate.






  • Application/Registration & Diagnostic Fees – $25 per student (non-refundable)
  • Withdrawal Fee – A fee of $50 (per student) will be charged for the processing of official or administrative withdrawal from Liberty University Online Academy. This non-refundable fee is applied at the time a student withdraws from LUOA.
  • Payment Plan Fee – $50 (non-refundable)
  • Dual Enrollment Books and Materials – While most courses have all content embedded into the online site, some may require additional material that is purchased separately from Barnes & Noble College.
