Important Course Information for Online Programs Students

Whether you are a new or returning Liberty University student pursuing an online degree, this page will help answer many of your questions about starting classes. Liberty University strives to provide a quality and enjoyable educational journey for all of our online degree program students.


How to Acquire Books for Your Online Courses

Undergraduate Program Books

Your success is our success, which is why we’re committed to providing quality academics at an affordable tuition rate. While other colleges are increasing their tuition, we’ve frozen tuition rates for our undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs for the past three years  ̶  and counting. 

To continue our mission of providing affordable education, beginning fall 2018, electronic textbooks will be provided for all undergraduate courses at no cost to you.  As a full-time student, this could save you an estimated $800-2,000 per year on textbooks!

Graduate, Postgraduate, and Doctoral Books

If you have not yet ordered materials for your Liberty University courses, you can do so at MBS Direct. If you do not know how to go about ordering your course materials, you can visit our book voucher page for more information or watch these short tutorial videos on ASIST and MBS Direct.

Online students can only use their Liberty University book voucher at the online bookstore, MBS Direct

*Please note: Should you fail to receive the appropriate course materials promptly or if there is confusion over the accuracy of the course material, contact your professor to ensure you will not be penalized for inability to complete the week’s coursework.


Learn how to Navigate Blackboard – Liberty’s Online Program Learning Environment

Blackboard is the online classroom management system where coursework is completed. Course content is added by Thursday of Week 0. To help prepare you as you begin your online courses at Liberty University, or if you need a refresher on how to use Blackboard, watch our tutorial videos.
