Online College Degree Programs

Liberty University is a nonprofit university, which means we work hard to keep tuition prices low to make your online education affordable. Tuition for our online degrees has not increased in three straight years. While many other online colleges have raised tuition, Liberty has been able to keep costs low as a non-profit university. We do not distribute our surplus funds to owners or shareholders, but instead, we use them to reinvest in technology and student support services to improve our residential and online academic programs.
