By means of its online distance learning programs, the University provides its undergraduate degrees, diplomas and certificates to a variety of individuals according to their motivation and educational goals.


It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Dr. Roderick C. Meredith, founder of Living University and Chair of its Board of Regents. Dr. Meredith served as Presiding Evangelist of the Living Church of God.  He had been suffering from cancer and died peacefully late Thursday night, May 18, 2017.  Dr. Meredith was one of the first evangelists ordained by Herbert W. Armstrong in 1952 and spent 64 years in the Work that Christ began through Mr. Armstrong.  He was the only person to serve as Deputy Chancellor at each of the Ambassador campuses. He was active in the Work until recent months. He is succeeded as Presiding Evangelist by Gerald E. Weston. The funeral is scheduled for Sunday, May 28 with Evangelist Richard F. Ames presiding.


Our online programs enable the University to serve students around the world. While the University continues to develop an on-campus undergraduate program in Charlotte it is further expanding its educational services to a rapidly growing online global student body. Our students can plan and pursue their studies according to their individual needs and circumstances.

Students study online and on-campus. To learn more about admission to a certificate, diploma, or degree program please refer to the Apply Now page.

The University seeks students who aspire to make a difference in tomorrow's world and who are willing to commit to that effort today. Admission to the University is selective and based upon evidence of intellectual promise, strong personal qualifications, good moral and ethical character, marked by a desire to be an effective servant leader.

Through the Open Learning Program individuals can enroll in one or more courses without pursuing a certificate, diploma or degree. Who is eligible to enroll? Anyone 18 years of age or older as non-matriculated students in lower division courses (those numbered 100-399) and in selected 400 level online courses. Students can accumulate twenty-four semester hours before having to meet regular admissions requirements.

Online course delivery provides an accessible alternative for students needing to complete courses and programs of study not conforming to traditional fixed academic schedules. The design of LU academic programs provides traditional and working adult students with the flexibility they need in balancing family, job, and study.
