You Can Make the Difference

Our society depends on you and the safety you provide. At Liberty University, we are grateful for the work you do and want to help you expand your influence. So our 25% First Responder tuition discount makes it possible for you to get the education you want to seek promotion, enhance your credentials, or go in a new direction with your career — for less. In fact, you can save up to $13,650 on your bachelor’s degree if you qualify!*

Speed is important in your line of work, so we’ll also assess your training, previous education, military background, and on-the-job experience to evaluate what can translate into college credit. You may be able to get through your program faster than you thought.

And because Liberty’s seasoned faculty teaches from a Christian worldview, you can be confident your classes will reflect their firm commitment to ethical and moral values. Taught by men and women who have real-life experience making the tough calls, you’ll learn to influence strategies and policies, train the next generation of elite protectors, or bring a new perspective to the field.

So whether you’re looking for an education to “fall back” on or one that will take you further in your career — to local, state, or federal levels — a degree from Liberty can get you there. Proper training does make all the difference.

*This calculation is based on the entire length of a 120-credit-hour undergraduate degree. The exact amount you can save is dependent on the degree level and number of credit hours taken per semester.


Our Top Degrees for First Responders

*Students must have already earned their RN license before beginning these programs.


    You are the calm in the storm.

    When all about you is chaos, you can keep your wits about you and think clearly. Your clear thinking during a crisis comes from countless hours of training. Proper training is essential, and no one knows it better than you. 

    Just as that proper training saves lives in the field, it can save lives, time, and money in business or government. The skills you’ve gained as a first responder can take you far in many fields. Your attention to detail, ability to keep a cool head in a crisis, and leadership qualities make you a valuable asset on any team. Furthering your education will only broaden your skill set and open more opportunities in management and leadership roles.

    Liberty University wants to honor your selfless service to others by providing you with a 25% tuition discount for First Responders (stackable with our military rates) which applies to our 600+ online degrees — from the associate to the doctoral level.

    “In the times in which we’re living today, Liberty University’s mission, the mission of training up a generation of Champions for Christ in literally every occupation, has never been more important.”

    Why We’re Nonprofit

    As a nonprofit (not-for-profit) university, Liberty is in the business of training skilled professionals to make a difference in the world – not gaining profit, revenue, or producing dividends for shareholders. In keeping with our commitment to your education, we invest our resources back into degree programs and into your student experience.

    While many other online colleges have raised tuition, Liberty has been able to keep costs low as a nonprofit university and has not increased tuition for 8 straight years. Lower tuition means less student loan debt for students.

    For Liberty University, nonprofit is more than a status; it is a valuable opportunity to invest in the lives of students who will go out and impact the world.
