Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are there any additional scholarships I'm eligible for?

    The SAO can help you find outside scholarships!

    We teach two Scholarship Search courses (101 & 102) that are 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.

  • I can't afford college, what do I do?

    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.

  • How do I withdraw?

    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.

    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.

  • How do I sign up for an LUO class as a residential student?

    Per policy, residential students must first have an established Liberty University GPA of a 2.0 in order to register for online classes. If you are a first-semester student at Liberty, you will be required to wait until your final grades post for your first semester to register for LUO classes.

    Once you have an established GPA of at least a 2.0, complete the following steps to register for LUO classes:

    • Visit www.Liberty.edu/Registrar
    • Choose "Registrar Forms"
    • Click on "Add/Drop Form (Residential Students Taking Online Classes)"
    • Thoroughly read through all information and FAQ's
    • Scroll to the bottom and choose "Add/Drop Form (Residential Students Taking Online Classes)"
    • Fill in the form in its entirety. Read the policies and choose "I have read and agree to the policies linked above."
    • Choose "Next" Review all information and hit "Submit"
    • If approved, your classes will show up on your schedule on ASIST within 3-5 business days.
  • If I have an issue or concern, who can I speak with to bring resolution to the situation?

    In the Student Advocate Office, our main goal is to assist residential students with any issue that comes about during their time at Liberty University. If you have a question or issue that arises and you would like to voice your concern, please visit, call or email the Student Advocate Office. While the University has certain policies in place to ensure consistency and safety in Academia and Campus Life, the SAO has the ability to listen to your concerns and assist you in resolving the issue.

    We are located in DeMoss Hall, Room 2312 and are open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. We close at 5 p.m. on Wednesdays.
