About Liberty University - Online School

Liberty University - Online School

Liberty University is a comprehensive Christian-oriented online university that offers a wide number of degree options.

Liberty offers all levels of degrees, including associate's, bachelor's and master's degrees and professional certificates. Liberty's degree programs also encompass more than 100 fields of study, including:

  • Aeronautics
  • Business Administration
  • Criminal Justice
  • Forensics
  • Special Education
  • Interdisciplinary Studies
  • Nursing
  • Paralegal Studies

Since Liberty is a Christian school, students may minor in religious fields of study, like Biblical Studies and Christian Ministry.

Liberty also awards professional degrees with a Christian focus. Examples of these degree programs include Christian Counseling and Religious Education.

However, Liberty teaches all of its classes from a Christian perspective, so that students learn how to apply Christian ethics and beliefs to their subject area and profession.

Since learning takes place online, students attend to their assignments on their own time.

The first step in the admissions process is to apply for financial aid. Liberty awards grants and loans to undergraduate students and loans to graduate students. Additional types of aid include outside scholarships and employer-sponsored financing. The second step in the admissions process is to submit an admissions application and official transcripts from all schools attended.


Liberty University is regionally accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS-COC) to award degrees at associate, baccalaureate, master's, education specialist and doctoral levels.

Accreditation ensures that Liberty University has met strict standards with regard to degree programs, faculty, administration, student support and services. Accreditation also ensures that courses taken and degrees earned through Liberty University will be accepted by other accredited institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.Schools participate in the accreditation process in order to gain third-party recognition that verifies the institution meets certain standards of academic and administrative quality and is committed to continual improvement.

As an accredited institution, Liberty University is eligible to participate in federal educational programs such as military tuition assistance, government tuition reimbursement programs, the GI Bill and corporate tuition assistance. Credits and degrees earned through Liberty are therefore recognized by private industry and by the military and federal government for promotion, assignment and position qualification standards.

SACS-COC accredits degree-granting higher education institutions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, which make up one of six geographic regions for accreditation in the United States.
