This equivalency guide contains courses offered by the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) and the equivalent courses offered at Liberty University. This guide includes courses from the NCCCS and Liberty University catalogs.
This guide lists courses as their direct equivalent. Direct Equivalent means that the listed North Carolina Community College System course has a corresponding course at Liberty University and satisfies that specific course requirement.
If you would like to request pre-approval for a course which is not present in this transfer guide, please submit a transient request.
The NCCCS institutions are:
We accept courses that are comparable to the courses taught in our curriculum that are completed with a grade of “C” or higher. Liberty does not accept remedial courses (usually below 100 level) or those courses that are on the Pass/Fail scale. We also do not accept Professional Development, Orientation/Student Success courses, Special Topics, Seminars, or Internships. Please direct any questions about a particular course to the Registrar’s Office.
If direct transfer credit has been previously awarded, Liberty University is not able to award duplicate direct transfer credit. Any duplicate direct transfer credit will instead be awarded elective credit, with the exception of sports activity courses and private lesson music courses.
Online (Virtual) Science Labs
All science course labs completed via online will transfer as elective credit only.
For an online science course that includes both the lecture and lab, the course will transfer as an elective or just the lecture portion, depending on the course.
If you are planning to take an online science course at a North Carolina community college, please call or email firstname.lastname@example.org before registering.
