From Liberty University

At Liberty University, we believe in developing Christ-centered men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills to impact their world. Training Champions for Christ has been our mission for the past 50 years and will be for years to come.

We offer 300+ undergraduate and graduate degree programs ranging from aeronautics to zoology, generous scholarships and financial aid, and exciting opportunities to serve, worship, and have fun. Our world-class campus provides everything you need to thrive as a student while preparing to make an impact for Christ through your career.

We believe a Liberty education should be affordable and accessible to everyone. That’s why we’ve frozen tuition for the fourth year in a row through the 2022-23 academic year and waived the test-score admission requirement through Fall 2023.

Liberty has the resources and opportunities of a large state university — and the heart and soul of an intimate Christ-centered college. You won’t find anywhere like it.
