This information is for Residential students only. Are you an Online student? Please use the appropriate course substitution form found on the Forms & Downloads page. Directions for completing the form are included on the form.
Course Substitution requests are made when a student wishes to substitute one course for another required course when a clear relationship exists between the two.
This form may also be used when an academic department approves a complete replacement for a Liberty course requirement. Approval of the course substitution is under the oversight of the Dean presiding over the required course.
If you feel a course is equivalent to the Liberty requirement, please submit a Transfer Evaluation Inquiry form to have your transfer course reevaluated. At any point prior to degree conferral, students may petition to have courses that are listed as electives (i.e. ELEC 1XX/2XX/3XX) substitute for required courses by using the Course Substitution form.
You will need to seek the signature of the appropriate department chairperson/dean. For list of department chairs and deans, see list below.
Once the course substitution form is signed and approved, submit a hardcopy using one of the following methods:
Course Substitution forms without course description or syllabus provided may cause a delay in processing
Check your Degree Completion Plan-Audit (DCP) (ASIST>Student>Student Record>DCP Audit) for the status of your request. The substitution/replacement will be posted on your DCPA.
Your request may be pending due to one of the following:
Change of Major - All requests to change degree programs, majors, cognates, and concentrations must be submitted in writing to the College of Applied Studies and Academic Success. Requests must be signed by the student in order to be processed. Major changes become effective for the semester following their submission.
Final Grade – If a course sub is submitted for a current or future course, the final grade must be posted before the course sub will be processed.
