Don’t pay more than you should for a doctoral degree.
Whether your next phase of leadership is military or civilian, more people should benefit from your experience. So at Liberty University, you’ll find more than one way to reach the pinnacle of your profession — for less.
Two simple pathways for military students:
Already have a graduate degree from Liberty?
- Start your doctoral degree within two years of graduation.
- Pay only $300 per credit hour.
Don’t have a graduate degree from Liberty?
- Start with one of our 21-hour Executive Certificates — available at $300/credit hour.
- Roll those credits into a corresponding doctoral program and continue to pay only $300/credit hour for the rest of your courses.
- Interested in a doctoral program in a different subject? No problem! Just start within 2 years of completing the Executive Certificate and still keep the $300/credit hour rate.
You understand the value of proper training. So do we. Lead your field with the degree you need — at a price you’ve earned. We’re grateful for your service.
