These are virtues you’ve built your life around. They drive you to work hard, press on, and meet challenges with grit and determination for the sake of those entrusted to you. They drive us, too. At Liberty University, it’s our privilege to serve those entrusted to us, and we work hard to ensure that those who have dedicated their lives to the good of others can continue to succeed — in any field.
“We in the military understand what personal sacrifice is. The valor, the character, the selflessness, the commitment that we all must give to our country is what you brought to the education process. There are people all around the globe right now, military members, taking the God-given character that you have and applying it to their education, and we are so proud of you.”
– Dr. Steven Keith
Director of the Liberty University Center for Chaplaincy

"The best thing about my Liberty experience is the love I feel from professors and other students, even though I am half-way across the country studying online. I feel like I’m part of the campus, even though I have never been there. Thank you for making me feel like I belong."
- Eric Feldhausen, M.Div. Christian Apologetics, current student
"I started with Liberty Online while stationed in Korea, and after three PCS moves, along with a military retirement, I finished the degree I started. Liberty University has been an amazing blessing, and the Military Affairs Team was with me every step of the way. The Academic Advising Team is always available to assist — just call. You will not find a better, more caring group of professors and instructors than those at Liberty."
- Katrina M. Johnson, B.S. in Religion: Biblical and Theological Studies, 2018 graduate
"Being a police officer coming into an educational world, I had expectations of failure. I attended my first intensive and my expectations changed overnight. My professor made me feel like I really belonged in education."
- Kelly Hoyle, Ed.D., 2018 graduate
"I hit a huge roadblock in getting my FAA pilot ratings and was just not motivated to finish. I texted my professor, and he did not hesitate to call me on his time and listen to me. He had nothing but encouraging things to say and ended our conversation with a prayer. He is one of the biggest reasons, along with the other professors I had, that I am very thankful and honored to have attended Liberty University."
- Michael S. Morgan, B.S. in Aeronautics, 2018 graduate
"I am an older student, and I chose Liberty University online after much deliberation. I knew nothing about Student Loans for Education (FAFSA, etc.) or about signing up for classes online, or getting the books I needed, etc. Several individuals at Liberty were insanely wonderful and made everything a cinch! They all are a class act, and I am blessed to have made contact with them. I am so enthused with Liberty University! Truly, this experience is the best. Thank you and blessings to all those who work to make Liberty what it is today!"
- Bill B. Zilar, B.S. in Information Technology: Data Networking and Security, current student
"I fully believe that I have made life-long friends in my classmates, teachers, and staff, and have also built up one of the largest networks of expert professionals I will ever have the pleasure of knowing."
- Rachael Chastain, M.A. Applied Psychology, 2018 graduate
