The Ph.D. online programs are designed to keep you in and keep you paying. They are the money makers for the University because most people in these programs are self-paid. Therefore, if you enroll, expect to take more than 3 classes to finish your dissertation once you get to that phase of the program. Expect to re-take courses and pay for each re-take. Advancing through the dissertation phases is a hard task and not at all like it is advertised. The program is structured to where the department... Read More

Degree: Nutrition

I chose their Masters Exercise /Nutrition since it was all online and I could work full time while taking 1 or 2 classes each semester. I wanted the most up to date research on exercise and nutrition --to help my profession- this degree was well worth it. There is volunteer work required for the graduation requirement which added to the learning experience.

Degree: Healthcare Administration

Overall, I have had a great experience at this college. I am a junior, and of course, no matter your age we all go through many struggles in life. This semester I was struggling financially taking on a heavier class load…I spoke on the phone with Angela she was very understanding, patient, caring and went absolutely above and beyond to make sure I was able to pay payments whenever I could and how much I could. She is a very sweet blessing in my time at Liberty. Angela should be head of the financial... Read More

Degree: Counseling

I am deeply troubled by the pure lack of communication that I have experienced with this entire process trying to get into my Master's program. Literally NO ONE has contacted me at all outside of an occasional email once I keep calling in repeatedly. I have been trying to get through just the admissions process alone for WEEKS. I have finally been accepted. I call in today to find out about getting my degree audit done for my transfer of credits only to find out there is yet another step that NO... Read More

Degree: Visual Communications

I am already an instructor at a college and I went back to get additonal education to further my career. I wanted to go to a Christian college since I was a Christian and I wanted a bibical education along with my Master's. First and foremost, the verbiage used in the online materials doesn't match the assignments. When I would reach out to my professor, I would either not get a response or the response I would get wouldn't answer my question. When I reached out to the college for additional support,...

The instructors for the courses are hit and miss with some being very helpful and others not being helpful at all. The coursework was rigorous, but the nightmare occurs with the dissertation process. Chairs and readers will drop you with little notice or no notice at all. You will spend a whole semester waiting for a dissertation proposal to be reviewed, when the manual says two weeks, and have to repeat the course because the proposal was not reviewed. Despite approval from your chair and reader,... Read More

I attended Liberty University for one week and this was my first experience back in College for more than 13 years. Liberty University is not a Degree Mill, however the sale department is strong and the Office of Disability and Services did not respond to my medical issues after several phone calls and also emails. I am using VA Benefits to complete the degree and I owe a bill after one week of over 2000.00 for 3 graduate classes that i had to withdraw from for medical reasons. They are about the... Read More

Degree: English

Let me begin by prefacing that I have my undergrad from another institution and I completed it entirely online. So, when I applied to the MA online program at Liberty I was expecting a similar experience. In some ways it was and not so in others. First, let me explain that like any online program one should expect a lot of self-teaching. Liberty and other online programs provide all of the information you need with the assigned readings and links to other various sources but ultimately no one is... Read More

Degree: Counseling

I liked Liberty University at first. They pull you in with the Christian school environment and Christ Centered classes. Each professor is different in my Doctoral program for Counseling. My first class group counseling was wonderful and I passed with a grade of A. My current class has a professor that immediately referred me for misconduct to my paper not cited correctly on APA. She referred me to Academic misconduct and I had to appeal the decision. The crazy thing is all she had to do was just... Read More

Degree: Writing

I find this school to be a joke. They try too hard to apply the Bible to the lectures that sometimes is not even relevant and you get points deducted if you can't relate. The professors I had graded me upon their agreement or disagreement to my thoughts on the discussion questions, which does not seem fair just because we had different views and opinions on the topic. Also, when reaching out with questions, it was hard to reach the professors and it cuts down on my time to get the help I want to... Read More

Check each and every course for prerequisites before you commit. They advertise 60-hour doctoral degrees for under $40K but it is not what it appears to be... too good to be true. In my scenario, I needed to take 7 more classes as prerequisites (38% more classes than advertised to complete the degree - giving the University an extra $14K in tuition revenue). I had the appropriate bachelor's and master's going into the program, yet still needed more. They don't tell you about these extra requirements... Read More

Degree: Physics

Sadly Liberty University Online is subpar of what I would consider quality education. Liberty University Online is practically a self study school where you will receive practically zero instruction and will never be able to see any lectures or even any pre recorded videos other than their stupid YouTube videos they will link. And their professors are some of the worst I've ever seen. They are super unclear with their instructions and their formatting even if you do exactly what the Liberty site... Read More

Degree: Criminal Justice

An honest review, from a very honest person. I have had both good and bad experiences here at Liberty, and all of the bad experiences honestly are with the graduate level professors. The academic advisors and financial aid offices have been professional and respectful each time I've engaged in conversation with them, and frankly, they are far more honest with me than the majority of my previous and present professors have ever been. One big negative experience is that even when you follow the APA... Read More

Degree: Public Health

DO NOT attend the MPH program. The school offers ZERO guidance and wouldn't even help me find a location to complete my practicum. All they want is tuition; they DO NOT care about students' lives in the least. I was given zero career planning help and now stuck with a useless degree, strangling debt, and no career prospects in public health (where everyone wants licensure of some kind). The school lied about job prospects with this useless degree. DO NOT GO HERE!

Degree: Clinical Psychology

Please note - you are required to integrate the school's Christian perspective into every class/assignment or suffer point deductions (at least in my masters and doctoral work). In my clinical mental health masters, one professor required me to present to the class or fail the semester (in my practicum) while I sat next to my three year old while she was in a hospital bed. It was unreal. I notified her of the hospitalization several days before my presentation was due (five days) and she said I would... Read More

I was happy I got my master's in professional writing, but when I tried to get my masters in creative writing, I had many issues with this college. So many bad professors need to teach P.H.D. classes, not graduate level classes, and staff, including the Dean from the English Department. Many students are just as bad as the staff of this class. This school's policies are unfair and need to change so it can be beneficial for everyone. This school abusing their policies to everyone including me. This... Read More

I earned a BA from a large state university, an MA from a medium-sized state university, and an MS from a certain private aeronautical university so when I began my PhD at Liberty, I had some perspective. People tend to not understand that a PhD is a research/science degree and if they haven't written a master's thesis, the dissertation is probably going to seem overwhelming and not what they expected. The thing about graduate school research is that you want to graduate; solve world hunger later.... Read More

Degree: Psychology

Notice the rating is 3 stars. That’s because there is a lot of bots/fluff with these 5 stars. If you’re thinking about this school, I highly suggest looking at the negatives first. They give insight to how “Godly” this school really is. If your life isn’t fixed, and you feel like some random emergency might cause you to withdraw early, just don’t take this program. Liberty University only cares about the money. I went there residentially for undergrad and had to do online for the master’s because... Read More

Degree: Computer and Information Science

I think the program started off well. Everything is easy to navigate and appreciated the digital textbooks for each class. Later on, there were courses that would’ve benefitted from instructions from professors once in a while. Assignments and applications for final projects lacked clarity or tutorials of what to even do. If I had to choose this school,again, I’d probably choose a different major, probably something religious based. But for a technical major, I would’ve chosen another school. Maybe... Read More
