LIBERTY UNIVERSITY HONORED AS ONE OF THE BEST SCHOOLS ONLINE

BestColleges.com recently rated Liberty University as a Gold School on its inaugural Schools of Distinction list, which honors institutions that are “leading the way in online education through a diverse offering of accessible and rigorous academic programs.” Liberty was one of only 14 schools, out of the 2,100 nonprofit and not-for-profit schools across the nation that offer online degree programs, that qualified for the top level of recognition.

BestColleges ranks over 900 top-performing online institutions annually and started the Schools of Distinction list to honor about 100 schools that rank frequently across multiple categories. The Gold School rating was reserved for institutions that have “a high-level of investment in online education, but also a commitment to excellence in online learning.”

Liberty has been pioneering distance education since 1985, and today it is one of the nation’s largest private, nonprofit online educators. Liberty offers more than 550 unique programs of study, including more than 250 online programs, from the certificate to doctoral level. Liberty online offers the same quality course offerings as the university’s residential campus. With more than 110,000 students — including almost 90,000 who are studying online — Liberty is the largest private, nonprofit university in the nation, the largest university in Virginia, and the largest Christian university in the world.
