Academic Evaluators by Program

Eligibility

In order to participate in the May Commencement ceremony, a student must be actively enrolled in all required coursework prior to the Graduation Application submission deadline; however, a student may still participate with two courses remaining if they are enrolled, or plan to enroll as soon as summer registration opens, in those final courses in the summer term following commencement through Liberty University. For work done outside of Liberty University (transfer, CLEP, ICE, etc.), a student must provide proof of completion (transcript with final grade) to either their  Academic Evaluator, or to the Registrar’s Office before the Graduation Application submission deadline.

By signing this form, I agree to complete all remaining coursework as described above. Submission of this form requests approval to participate in the 2018 Liberty University Commencement exercises; however, submission of this form does not imply approval of participation. I understand that the approval to participate does not mean that I have completed my course requirements, or that my degree will be awarded.

Degree in Passing

  • Degree in passing students are eligible to attend Commencement only if they’ve successfully completed all degree requirements prior to, or in, the Spring 2018 semester.
  • They are not eligible for the exception. No degree in passing student will be approved to participate in Commencement and finish degree requirements in summer.

 

Certificate Students

  • Certificate students are also eligible to attend Commencement only if they’ve successfully completed all certificate requirements prior to, or in, the Spring 2018 semester.
  • They are not eligible for the exception. No CRT student will be approved to participate in Commencement and finish degree requirements in summer.

  5. The $100 Graduation Application fee will be assessed by the Student Accounts Office within 1-2 weeks of the Graduation Application being submitted and the fee will be added to the student's account for the semester in which the application is submitted.*

If any information on a Graduation Application needs to be changed after it has been submitted, please email your Academic Evaluator.

*“If you are currently utilizing your GI Bill® and would like for the graduation fee of $100 to be funded by the GI Bill®, your graduation application must be submitted during your last term of courses. If your graduation application is received after the completion of your final courses, or during a term where you are not enrolled in courses, the GI Bill® cannot cover the $100 fee and you will be responsible to cover this charge. For more information, please contact vabenefits@liberty.edu.”
