No Obligation! What You See Is What You Get!

You do not need to register or otherwise identify yourself in any way in order to take this FREE life-changing course. There is no obligation, and no one will call you.

Should you be interested in taking any additional courses after this FREE course, you may purchase and view them using our LCU Online® Learning Center without officially enrolling as an LCU student.

If you are interested in earning a degree from LCU, you simply need to submit the exam included with the FREE course, along with a student application. This FREE course and all other courses you take will then count toward your first degree.

Obtaining Your Textbook

You can obtain your textbook for this course using the following means:

  • Download a free ePub version (suitable for tablets or smartphones.)
  • If you prefer, you may purchase a paperback version from LCU for $15.99.

Technical Requirements

  1. LCU supports only the following browsers for viewing its course videos:
    • Safari (MacOS, iOS)
    • Chrome (MacOS, Linux, Android, or WinXP & newer)
    • Firefox (MacOS, Linux, WinXP & newer)
    • Internet Explorer 9/10/11 (Win7/8/8.1)
    • Edge (Win10 and newer)
  2. You will need a software program that can read and print Adobe Acrobat (PDF) files as well as access to a printer to print the outline and test. If you have a Windows computer and do not have Acrobat Professional or Adobe Reader installed, Adobe Reader is a free download here. Macintosh users may either use that comes with MacOS or download Adobe Reader using that same link.
  3. In case your Internet access is too slow to support online videos, we have also included audio-only versions of the lectures in MP3 format. To download the MP3 file rather than playing it in your browser, follow the directions below the Course Sessions List list at right. You may then either listen to them on your computer, transfer them to your favorite MP3 player, or burn them onto a CD.


  • In compliance with the current trend in Internet best practices, LCU no longer serves course videos in Adobe Flash format as of July 16, 2012.

Legal Stuff

  • Limit of one free course per student. No other courses may be substituted for the one offered here.

  • This offer is for online students only and is not available to students already enrolled at an LCU extension campus. There are no refunds for students who have paid tuition for enrolling in TH-101 either online or at an LCU campus.
