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 4 years. We have also recently lowered the tuition for our Master of Arts in Teaching and Master of Education programs for the 2018-19 academic year. We also offer special block tuition rates for our Rawlings School of Divinity Master’s Programs. In fact, we offer some of the lowest tuition rates per credit hour compared to other colleges and universities. Visit our online tuition information webpage and find out how affordable your online college degree can be. 

We continue to offer military tuition and first responder’s discounts to show our appreciation for the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform. In addition, we provide electronic textbooks 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! 

Graduation Rate

Liberty’s graduation rate is among the highest of the top schools in Virginia. By assisting students with academic services, providing easy access to professors, networking opportunities, discussion boards and a wide variety of other services we can lay the groundwork for your success. As a Christian college, we see it as our mission to Train Champions for Christ. We believe that having a clearly-defined goal and lots of support from faculty help to ensure that you are successful. 

Flexibility and Small Class Size

We know that your time is important because of this we offer a convenient and flexible 8-week course schedule. There are no set login times! We also strive to give students a personalized education through an intimate professor to student ratio. You will find it is lower than even some residential colleges. 

Resources and Student Services

Liberty University has a wide range of academic services available to our students. Among these services is our Online Writing Center which provides invaluable support and writing coaching. The Jerry Falwell Library also provides innumerable resources for you to utilize as you perform research for courses. Our resources don’t just end when you graduate. Our Career Center offers valuable career development opportunities for online students and alumni.

BestColleges also recognized Liberty with the Gold Level of Distinction award, due to the fact that more than 30 of our online degree programs have ranked on BestColleges. This high number of awards reflects our dedication to high quality in education in all our different programs and schools.
