Liberty University’s Online Program Military Benefits

Liberty University recognizes the service and sacrifice of those who have answered the call of duty to defend our nation’s freedoms. Because of this, we are privileged to offer tuition discounts to those who are eligible to help our military students achieve their academic and professional goals. In addition to these financial benefits, we also offer academic benefits, military support services, and connection to our military community through social media, monthly newsletters, and military appreciation events.

To take advantage of all of these benefits, we encourage you to submit military documentation through the steps outlined below to ensure your military status is reflected on your student account. 


Step 1: Determine Your Eligibility

Use the information below to help you determine your eligibility for our Liberty military benefits, including the tuition discount. If you have any questions, you may contact a military benefits counselor at (855) 355-4947, LUOMilitary@liberty.edu, or by Chat LIVE.

Who Qualifies?

  • Active Duty, Reservists, National Guard
  • Veterans / Retirees
  • Spouses of Service Members and Veterans / Retirees
  • Current Department of Defense Employees

Eligibility Requirements:

  • All current service members of the U.S. Armed Forces qualify after basic training is completed (as defined in 10 U.S.C. § 101(a)(4)). State Guard does not qualify. 
  • In addition, current Department of Defense employees, Veterans (with honorable/general discharge), and military spouses currently qualify. A military spouse is defined by Liberty University as a husband or wife currently in a state-sanctioned marriage to a current service member or veteran, both of whom are natural-born members of the opposite sex. 
  • The aforementioned must be pursuing a Certificate, Associates, Bachelors, or Masters level program. Additionally, Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) and Education Specialist (Ed.S.) students may qualify. Benefits only apply to Liberty University Online military students. Students enrolled in a Residential program or the Willmington School of the Bible do not qualify.

Please note: If you apply to a new program, change degree levels, or break enrollment, you will be required to resubmit documentation that meets the current eligibility requirements.

If your discharge does not meet the criteria for our military benefits and you feel your situation warrants a special review by our office, please provide a written explanation of your circumstances (including the DD-214 with character of service listed, supporting documentation, and a brief essay) to be reviewed by the Office of Military Affairs for consideration. You may email your request with documentation attached to LUOMilitary@liberty.edu. The Office of Military Affairs reserves the right to deny or approve appeals based on a comprehensive review of all documentation submitted.
