General Scholarship Rule (GSR): A student’s combined federal grants, state grants, and Liberty aid are not permitted to exceed the combined cost of actual tuition and Tier 2 room and standard board charges ($8,800 per year for 2016-17).  The GSR calculation for commuter students only includes the cost of tuition which means federal grants, state grants, and Liberty aid cannot exceed the actual cost of tuition only because there is no room and board charge.  If the combined aid exceeds the total cost as specified, Liberty aid will be reduced to resolve the excess aid. The Federal Pell Grant is not included as a factor in the GSR for Resident students. All Liberty aid is subject to the GSR.

Students must have a verified FAFSA on file to receive most Liberty aid and all federal aid. Students selected for Verification must complete the process before being awarded any financial aid.

Full tuition scholarships are not permitted to be combined with the standard Confirmation Scholarship package.

Most resident scholarships are for prospective, full-time undergraduate students unless stated otherwise in the award eligibility criteria below.

Liberty discounts are applied beginning with the term in which a student is approved and are not awarded retroactively to prior terms of enrollment.

Liberty University reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of any scholarship at any time at its discretion, as well as suspend or terminate any scholarships.
