Admission Process – Liberty University Online Programs

As an accredited online Christian university, Liberty University offers certificate, undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs including online degrees in divinity, sciences, arts, communications, and many more!

We understand the university admission process can seem overwhelming. We’ve simplified the process to make it easy to navigate through the Liberty admission and enrollment steps.

You may find program-specific requirements on each program page if they exist.

Once you have applied, you will need to send your transcripts and other required documents for the Liberty admission process.

Please keep in mind that transcript requirements differ depending on degree level. Liberty University admissions may also require additional documents. Visit your specific program admissions page to learn more.

Official High School transcripts are required for undergraduate programs. Students may be able to enroll in up to 12 credit hours with unofficial high school transcripts and our high school self-certification form.

Students can be accepted into most programs with unofficial transcripts, but official college transcripts must be submitted within 60 days of acceptance or before non-attendance drops for the first set of matriculated classes, whichever occurs first.

Please note: Unofficial transcripts can only be used for acceptance purposes when a transcript request form is also submitted.

Applicants who have completed secondary education or college-level academic coursework outside of the U.S. must have their transcripts evaluated by a credential evaluation service provider that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES)*.

Liberty University offers general admission for students who achieve one of the following minimum scores on a standardized test of English Proficiency.

You may fax, email, or mail a copy of your unofficial course-by-course evaluation and transcripts. Official course-by-course evaluations with attached transcript(s) must either be mailed or submitted directly to Liberty University from your NACES-approved evaluator through an electronic official transcript system.

*International schools with U.S accreditation will not need an NACES evaluation.

**The School of Aeronautics requires a minimum Duolingo English test score of 105 for all undergraduate and graduate programs.

***The School of Aeronautics requires a minimum TOEFL Essentials test score of 8.5 for all undergraduate and graduate programs.

Get started setting up your financial aid by following the below steps and submitting the forms that apply to you.

As an accredited university, eligible students may use federal and private grants and aid. Make sure you have your FAFSA completed prior to class registration. Even if you intend to pay out-of-pocket through one of Liberty University’s interest-free payment plans, have military benefits, or have corporate tuition assistance, you may be eligible for additional benefits through financial aid.

It can take up to two weeks to process, so we recommend that you submit your FAFSA as soon as possible.

Use Liberty’s school code (010392). You must complete the FAFSA to be considered for financial aid. If you have more questions or concerns about the FAFSA, see more about the FAFSA.
