    As far as the education goes it is very relative. You can get a great deal out of it if you are self motivated. If you want a good education, you can get one or you can choose to just do enough work to pass. The Prof. that teaches the class (on the video) is Dr. Elmer Towns. He is the co-founder of LU and a fairly popular author. I took him for N.T. as a resident student and he was great. You will have a different Prof. that oversees the actual class. The 8 week format can be tough because you are packing the whole semester into 8 weeks. That is a lot of class work to finish in 8 weeks, even if you are doing it on the internet. The 8 week format is done online and the 16 week format is done through video and mail (the tests require a proctor). As far as price goes, it's around 210 a credit hour. They also offer financial aid packages. Here is the DLP link from LU - http://www.liberty.edu/distancelearning/index.cfm?PID=166. I would say that after being a resident student and a DLP student from LU that being a DLP student takes more discipline. I'm sure this wouldn't be a problem for you, so I wouldn't be too concerned. The biggest thing to consider is accreditation. I my opinion it is VERY important that the colleges you consider are accredited by a governmental accrediting agency (SACS, Tracs, etc). LU is accredited, so it is a great option for many. Hopefully that helps and feel free to ask anymore questions.

    Southern Evangelical has a distance learning program, both at the college and seminary level. 4 month limit per class, rigorous, conservative, solid.
