Enrollment Verification

A student is considered enrolled when they are registered for a course and have attended the course and/or completed academic work for the course after its start date.  For enrollment verification purposes, a student’s time status (Ex: full-time, part-time, etc.) does not change when the student withdraws from a course, unless the student has been withdrawn from all of their courses.  When a student has withdrawn from all of their in-progress courses, this constitutes a ceasing of enrollment. 

Liberty University does not charge additional fees for student identity verification. 

Full-time Enrollment

Undergraduate: 12 credit hours 
Graduate: 9 credit hours 
Doctoral: 6 credit hours


Half-time Enrollment

Undergraduate/Graduate: 6 credit hours 
Doctoral: 3 credit hours


Deferment Related Requests

Lender policy requires students to be enrolled at least half-time in order to qualify for deferment.

To lenders, the term “enrolled” refers to being actively involved in coursework. If you only take courses during one 8-week sub-term, your loans will be taken out of deferment as soon as those courses end. If you enroll for the spring B-term (first 8-weeks), your loans will remain in deferment from January to March, but will be taken out of deferment the day after your B-term courses end. If at all possible, try to register for courses during both the B and D sub-terms each semester. By doing so, you will ensure that your loans remain in deferment for the entire duration of a semester.

Liberty University utilizes the National Student Clearinghouse update to inform lenders of your enrollment. This process takes up to 6 weeks to fully update. If necessary, in order to expedite the verification process, you may request a verification letter to be sent to your lenders by clicking the link below, entitled “Student Enrollment Verification Form.” This will prompt you to log in using your liberty email address as the username. Fill out the online form and a verification letter will be processed for you within 48 hours.

Liberty University is unable to send verification of current enrollment to your lender until the add/drop period passes, but you may submit the request once you have registered for the upcoming term. Liberty University will hold the request and send the letter to your lender(s) after the add/drop period. For online students, letters will be sent the day after courses begin. For resident students, letters will be sent the Monday of the second week of courses.
