To graduate from Liberty, all full-time, residential undergraduate students must successfully complete one CSER requirement for each full-time semester that they are a student, up to eight (8) semesters. Once students have fulfilled these requirements, they will no longer need to enroll in a CSER.
Note: Residential students who are full-time (12 hours or more) are required to enroll in CSER whether they are taking residential or LU Online courses.
While students are only required to complete one CSER for every semester they are full-time, they may register and receive a grade for more than one CSER during any semester (Refer to Section IV.F. for restrictions concerning credit for future semesters). Students who fall behind and need to receive credit for more than one CSER in a semester to fulfill their graduation requirements, must make that request in the online application process. (See Section III.F. below).
Students must complete a minimum of 20 hours in order to pass any CSER. Some supervisors may require more than 20 hours. In such cases, supervisors will inform students prior to enrollment, and then the student must complete the additional hours to pass his or her CSER with that organization. (Examples: Young Life and the local hospitals; LGH and VBH).
No. Students must complete all CSER hours for a registered CSER within that semester only. Semester beginning and ending dates are according to the official calendar issued be the Registrar's office. Summer semester and Winter Break hours must be completed between the spring and fall and fall and spring semesters respectively.

Students may make up their CSER requirements in later semesters by completing more than one CSER in a semester. They may use the Summer semester or Winter Break to catch up as well (See Note in Section II.C. above).
