As a current student, submit a Transient Request Form when you wish to have pre-approval to take a course at another institution that will equate to a Liberty University course. There is no need to submit this form if your course is listed in one of the LU Transfer Equivalency Guides.
If your course is found in the LU Transfer Equivalency Guides, there is no need to submit a transient request form.
Transient requests are available to current Liberty University students only. Prospective students should request an Unofficial Transfer Consultation (UTC).
Courses must at least meet this criteria:
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.
Forms that do not appear on the web must be obtained from the Registrar's Office or your Academic Advisor.
Many forms apply only to residential programs and not the online learning program, and vice versa.
All forms must be completed and processed according to the guidelines in the 2013-2014 Academic Policy Handbook and the University Catalog in order to be considered official.
Please call (434) 592-5100 if you need additional information.
