What is a UTC?

It is important that you make the best decision regarding where to pursue your degree, which is why we provide a free transfer consultation of your transcript prior to applying. Through this unofficial evaluation, we will provide you with a general idea of what to expect regarding how your transfer credits might apply to your chosen degree program. This will determine how many courses you may satisfy and how many courses you may still need to complete your chosen degree program.

When do I use a UTC Form?

  1. The Unofficial Transfer Consultation request is a service provided for transfer students who would like to know how much transfer credit would apply to their chosen degree program before applying for admission. Applications who are not yet accepted may also use this form.

  2. A separate Official Transfer Credit Evaluation is provided to students who have applied or have been accepted to Liberty for a future term.  Please visit our Registrar's Office website for alternate options that are available to you.

 UTC Guidelines

  1. Students must provide copies of their unofficial college transcripts (front and back) from ALL colleges attended. They must indicate the name of the institution, course titles, course numbers, letter grades, number of credit hours, and enrollment dates. Students may also provide unofficial College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), Advanced Placement (AP), and Higher Level International Baccalaureate (IB) scores.

  2. The UTC form and transcript(s) should be sent together either by fax, mail, or e-mail to the contact information provided below. Please be sure to include the request form and transcripts.

  3. Unofficial Transfer Consultation results will not contain an evaluation of military credits, as these processes are separate.  The Military Transfer page will provide students with further information.

  4. The unofficial evaluation will be based on transcripts, submitted test scores, and degree requirements in place at the time of request. Degree Completion Plans are subject to change annually; therefore, the unofficial evaluation will not be considered a binding agreement.
