Undergraduate Admissions Requirements

Undergraduate Admissions Requirements

We welcome your application to Liberty University! When we evaluate undergraduate applications, we value intellectual ability, academic achievement, and personal qualities that will contribute to our university mission and campus community.

Admissions Decisions

Admission decisions are competitive and are based primarily on the following factors:

  • Cumulative high school GPA and college (if applicable)
  • GED scores (if applicable)
  • Consistency and trends of grades
  • Results from the SAT* or ACT without writing, using the highest score on each section
  • Essay submission

Note: Other documentation such as reference letters, community service, and leadership, may also be helpful or required by the admissions committee.

Mid-ranges for enrolled freshmen:

High School GPA       3.17-3.85
SAT* (math and critical reading)      950-1170
ACT composite        20-26

This means that 50% of admitted students come from above or below the ranges.

*The new SAT will change to Evidence-Based Writing and Reading
