Liberty University has been pioneering distance education since 1985. For almost 4 decades, we have provided a unique and proven approach to distance learning, from the early days of mailing out course material to today’s 450+ online certificates and associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees.
Liberty University’s Program Highlights:
Multiple institutions recognize us for our academic quality, affordability, and accessibility. Our commitment to excellence also helped us rank among Niche.com’s top 10 online schools in America. Earning your online degree from a nonprofit university with this kind of recognition can help set you apart from others in your field.
Tuition for all undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs has not increased in 6 years. While many other online colleges have raised tuition, Liberty has been able to keep costs low as a nonprofit university.
We understand that paying for college can be a strain on your finances. At Liberty, we work to ease the burden by accepting financial aid, military tuition assistance, and veteran benefits. We also offer a variety of payment plan options to give you the most practical ways to pay your tuition cost.
Liberty University’s online tuition rates are in the bottom third when compared to our leading online competitors. As a nonprofit institution, Liberty University is not designed to profit investors with your educational investment. Instead, our online college tuition costs are kept at a reasonable rate that helps to make your education experience even better and reach the world for Christ.
