Since 1971, we’ve had one mission – Training Champions for Christ. That is, and always will be, the core of Liberty University. But as we are increasingly in the public eye of a culture that understands Christianity less and less, it is important that we clearly define what we mean by “Champion for Christ.”
It is an advocate. A defender. Someone who champions living like Christ displays gratitude, humility, integrity, joy, love, service, and unity. At Liberty, a champion is a Christ-centered man or woman with the values, knowledge, and skills essential for impacting tomorrow’s world.
Here, all of our courses are taught from a biblical perspective because we don’t just train skilled professionals — we train exceptional professionals who want to make a difference. We believe this focus on ethics sets our students apart from their peers — in fact, many employers seek out our students because of their reputation for trustworthiness. Students from any faith background are welcome to study with us, and many find the experience personally enriching.
Degree completion time greatly depends on the chosen program and the amount of transfer credit you may have. For undergraduate online degree programs, the more credits you transfer in, the faster you will complete your degree online. You may be able to earn credit for professional training, through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Institutional Challenge Examinations (ICE), or by utilizing credit from previous college courses, you have taken. For online graduate and postgraduate programs, it depends on the program and the amount of time you have available to spend on your classes. Most online undergraduate and graduate degree programs have a certain number of courses that must be completed through Liberty to graduate. Please contact our Admissions Department to learn more.
Traditional classes are completed through structured face-to-face lectures and class time, and they operate on a semester-by-semester basis. Most online classes last eight weeks, while some are 14 or 17 weeks in length, and a few select programs require minimal one- or two-week on-campus intensives. During that time, you can choose how and when you want to study. As long as you turn assignments in by your professors’ deadlines, you can set your own pace. Through it all, you’ll have access to an extensive digital library, online study aids, writing resources, and technology support. Many employers look very favorably on the fact that online students have the discipline to manage their schedule and work simultaneously. Employers typically support online programs and their employees’ enrollment in an online degree with Liberty University’s online programs.

Yes. Liberty University Online has students studying from countries all around the globe. Through our convenient online format, students can complete their online programs without residency requirements for most programs. A few programs require minimal one- or two-week on-campus intensives at times convenient to the student. Students residing outside of the United States with intensive requirements should speak with resident admissions about VISA eligibility.
You have to have a lot of self-motivation and self-discipline when you are going to school online, but the amazing thing is at Liberty you do not need to do it by yourself. You really do have resources like someone who is going to school on campus.
