Transfer to Liberty University

Find out how your courses will transfer to Liberty.

Requirements

We expect you to be in good standing with your previous school with at least a 2.0 GPA when you transfer. Your GPA will start over at Liberty University. 

Transfer Agreements

Liberty has developed transfer agreements with the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) and North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) that include equivalency guides which guarantee the transfer of courses from participating colleges.


Step 1: Unofficial Transfer Consultation 

Through the Unofficial Transfer Consultation (UTC), we will give you a general idea of what to expect regarding the application of your transfer credits to your chosen degree program before you even submit an application. This will determine how many courses you may satisfy and roughly how many courses you may still need in order to finish your chosen degree program.

Official Evaluation

An official evaluation of transfer credits will be provided once you have been accepted to Liberty and have submitted official transcripts from all institutions attended. If you have been accepted to Liberty for a future term and want to know how the credits you plan to take at your current school will transfer, submit a Transient Approval Form.

Step 2: Apply for Transfer Admissions

Liberty has a rolling admissions process, meaning you can apply any time. However, you could be eligible for scholarships by following the Priority Program timeline. Submit your online application or contact an Admissions Counselor at (800) 543-5317 to submit your application over the phone.

Step 3: Submit Transcripts & Documents

In order to evaluate your credits, we must have official transcripts from every college or university you have attended. Please use the Transcript Request Form. Transcripts must be sent directly from the school(s) to Liberty University in order to be considered official. Send transcripts to:

Liberty University Admissions
1971 University Boulevard
Lynchburg, VA 24515
MSC 710278

Step 4: Plan your degree

After your transcripts have been evaluated, we will email you a copy of the evaluation. The evaluation will show how the courses you have taken are transferring to Liberty University.

Utilize the Suggested Course Sequences and Degree Completion Plan for your major. However, only a professional advisor can confirm your degree completion timeline.

Transfer Evaluation Inquiry Form

If you are certain that a course you have taken is equivalent to a course in the Liberty University course catalog, consider submitting the Transfer Evaluation Inquiry Form. Make sure to review the guidelines and instructions before completing the form.
