As a nonprofit (not-for-profit) university that has online college degrees in almost every area of study, Liberty University is not in the business of gaining profit and revenue. Liberty’s online program focuses on the training of competent and skilled graduates, which is in keeping with our commitment to your education. Nonprofit colleges do not have to worry about paying dividends to their shareholders. Instead, Liberty University invests that money in our online college degrees.

For Liberty University, nonprofit is more than a status. For us, it is a valuable opportunity to invest in the lives of students who will go out and impact the world for Christ.
