“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.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Liberty University Accredited?
Yes, Liberty University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. This is the regional accrediting body for southern states. Many of our programs are further recognized by other professional organizations and field-specific accrediting agencies.
Is Liberty University a Yellow Ribbon School?
Yes, but you most likely won’t need it! Most online students who are eligible for Yellow Ribbon are not likely to need this additional coverage due to Liberty’s low tuition costs.
Will Courses Fit Around My Schedule?
Yes! Nearly all courses are structured in an 8-week format and there are 8 start dates per year. There are also no set login times for class, so you can do your coursework on your own schedule.
Is Liberty a Religious School?
We are a Christian university and we teach from a biblical worldview. We believe this focus on biblical values sets our students apart from their peers — in fact, many employers seek out our students because of their reputation for trustworthiness and ethics. Students from other faith backgrounds are welcome to study with us, and many find the experience of engaging with a different worldview personally enriching.
Are There Any Entrance Exams?
No. There are no standardized test requirements if you meet admission requirements.
