Transient Request - Pre-Approval for Transferable Courses

As a current Liberty University student, you may request pre-approval to take a course at another institution that will satisfy a required course on your degree completion plan.  To submit a transient request,  please visit the LU Transfer Suite.


Considerations for Transient Courses:

  • Credit that is awarded for course(s) taken at another institution must equate to at least 2/3 of the credit of the LU course.
  • Course content must be comparable.
  • In order to receive credit for the course, students must complete the course with a C or better and have the official transcript sent to Liberty University for transfer evaluation.
  • Further explanation of this criteria can be found on the Liberty University Transfer Policy Page.



  • Your request will be processed within 2 business days
  • Prospective students should call 434-592-5551 to speak with a transfer credential evaluator
  • If your course is found in the LU Transfer Equivalency Guides, there is no need to submit a transient request form
