College can be confusing and we want to make sure our students don’t get lost in the shuffle. We’re a one-stop-shop for helping you get your questions answered.
Areas students often have questions about are: financial aid, housing, account holds and balances, personal issues, and roommate conflicts. We serve as a liaison with other offices and departments on campus to help you get your questions answered. We also help clarify and explain University policies and procedures.
Our primary focus is to help each student from their first day here to graduation – whether that be through problem solving, peer counseling, one-on-one appointments, financial aid, and scholarship help or just a helping hand and listening ear, we are here for YOU.
Reach out to us! You can reach us in person, by phone, by e-mail, or by sending us a message on Microsoft Office Communicator! We look forward to hearing from you and helping you find the answers you need.
Our office is located at DeMoss Hall Room 2247 and online at www.liberty.edu/sao. We are also located on Facebook and Twitter, Simply search for Liberty University SAO!
The SAO can help you find outside scholarships!
We teach a Scholarship Search 101 course that is designed to help point you in the right direction in finding scholarships tailored to you. We know from experience how overwhelming it can feel to pay for college.
Check out our website monthly! We update a "Scholarship of the Month" link for you to keep your scholarship applications current.
Lastly, if you are facing a serious financial hardship that will prevent you from being able to return to Liberty, you may want to set up an appointment with a Student Advocate to see if you qualify for any additional aid.
Get in touch with us! Every person’s situation is unique and we will do our best to evaluate your need and assist in whatever way we can.
To process an official withdrawal from Liberty University you must stop by, in person, to meet with the Student Advocate Office. Please keep in mind that withdrawing during a semester has enormous financial repercussions nearly 90% of the time. It is our job to help you find a way out.
One of the more popular ways to advise students who feel overwhelmed by a full-time course load is by advising said student to drop down to 6 active credit hours. If a student does so, the majority of the time the financial ramifications are close to nil and a student is able to successfully complete a term.
If you are considering a withdrawal, please come to the Student Advocate Office and speak with an Advocate. We can give you direction, explain your options, and help close out your account if necessary.
