In 1971, the Rev. Jerry Falwell dreamed about world change. He envisioned a generation of professionals in every field who loved God, served others, and were the best at whatever they were called to be. He saw a university on a mountain where this training could happen—and he started to build it.
Liberty University is an accredited evangelical liberal arts institution with 17 colleges and schools, over 100,000 students, and 600+ programs of study from the certificate to the doctoral level. Over 400 of these programs are available to students around the globe through our online programs.
Emphasizing just the right balance between academic theory, research, and hands-on training, Liberty’s unique approach to education means that you can be prepared to not only succeed in your profession of choice but also to adapt and thrive in a constantly changing marketplace.
At Liberty University, you’ll be equipped to do your job ethically and with excellence. Gain the critical thinking, research, data analysis, and communication skills you need to become an essential contributor in your field and the kind of leader who inspires others.
Our vision for you extends past graduation. Getting the right job often requires both a good education and effective networking — Liberty helps you with both. Our Career Center is here to help you find the career that’s right for you. You’ll have access to services such as résumé critiquing, online career fairs, and externship and internship opportunities. And our LU Network connects job seekers like you with employers around the world.
Your success — in class, in faith, and in life — is our calling. Our commitment is to support you through every step of registration, Financial Check-In, managing your Degree Completion Plan, and everything else between enrollment and graduation.
Some residential or online colleges and universities limit you to a specific advisor for your online college degree program. At Liberty University, we have a full team of trained academic advising professionals who are happy to assist you whenever you need help. Academic advisors trained in your specific online degree program are waiting for your chat, email, or phone call.
As a central training ground for the next generation of Champions for Christ, the Jerry Falwell Library is the "heart of the university." Named in honor of Liberty University's founder, the library will usher in a new era of academic excellence and spiritual strength for students, faculty, staff, and the community.
Information Services exists to introduce and support technologies within the University community. Together, we identify issues, communicate solutions, and provide resources for both personal and professional success.
You are always welcome to come and explore Liberty’s campus in Lynchburg, Va. On-campus intensives, Homecoming, and Commencement are wonderful events to participate in as an online student and provide opportunities for you to connect with your school.
But even if you don’t, know that the most important thing we build here is changed lives — at Liberty, you’ll benefit from over 30 years of learning, growing, adapting, and innovating for the distance learner and more than a decade of researching the needs of the online student. You can be confident that we’ve taken the time to learn what’s important to you.
The Liberty University Online Student Advocate Office exists to assist online students with overcoming obstacles preventing the completion of their chosen degree. The Online Student Advocate Office accomplishes this goal by acting as a mediator between the student and our university departments (e.g., Academic Advising, Student Financial Services, Withdrawals, etc.). This office also works with students facing challenges affecting academic progress.
