Service. Integrity. Honor.
These virtues drive you to work hard and press on — and your sacrifice doesn’t go unnoticed.
At Liberty, we offer some of the lowest tuition rates for military members and their families:
per credit hour for undergraduate courses – textbooks included
per credit hour for graduate, Ed.S., and Ed.D. courses
per credit hour for Ph.D. courses for continuing students
At Liberty University, it’s our privilege to serve those entrusted to us.
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

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 in 5 straight years. Lower tuition means less student loan debt for students.
For Liberty University, nonprofit is more than a status; it is the valuable opportunity to invest in the lives of students who will go out and impact the world.
Tuition amounts are for an entire degree and all tuition rates and credit hour requirements are based on data published on competitor’s websites as of 12/10/19. Therefore, this information is believed but not guaranteed to be accurate. All tuition data and credit hour requirements are for online programs. Individual institutions may charge additional fees above published tuition costs. Rates are subject to change.
87% of all Liberty students in an online program are awarded financial aid. Virginia residents may qualify for additional aid — learn more!
Corporate Tuition Assistance
Deferred – If your company reimburses you for the cost of your education, you submit your grades to your employer who pays you, and then you pay for your classes.
