This equivalency guide contains courses offered by Richard Bland College (RBC) and the equivalent courses offered at Liberty University. This guide includes courses from the RBC and Liberty University catalogs.
If you would like to request pre-approval for a course which is not present in this transfer guide, please submit a transient request.
How Courses are Listed
Direct Equivalent – the listed RBC course has a corresponding course at Liberty University and satisfies that specific course requirement.
Elective - RBC course does not have a corresponding course at Liberty University. You should check with your department to verify if elective credits can be used in your major. Do NOT assume that “elective” credits can count toward the “electives” required in your major.
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.
