Online Admission Process

Next Acceptance Deadline

Dec 20, 2017

As you embark on your academic journey, the admission process can seem overwhelming.  We have designed our five STEPS to help you successfully navigate through the admission and enrollment process and begin your classes as soon as possible!
 

Step 1 – Submit your application to Liberty University
Step 2 – Submit your self-certification form or transcripts from any prior colleges/universities
Step 3 – Start the Financial Aid process by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Step 4 – Enroll in your first courses
Step 5 – Complete Financial Check-in and start your courses


Step 1 – Submit your application to Liberty University

Apply to the program that meets your future career goals! Applications can be submitted online, by downloading an application and mailing it, or over the phone.

  • Undergraduate Admissions Counselors - (800) 424-9595
  • Graduate / Post-Graduate Admissions Counselors - (800) 424-9596
  • You may fax, email or mail your application.

Step 2 – Submit your self-certification form or transcripts from any prior colleges/universities

Once you have applied into a program you will need to send over your transcripts for an admissions decision. Most programs allow admission with unofficial transcripts, with the expectation that official transcripts will be on file within 60 days of acceptance.

You can fill out and submit the Transcript Request Form, and Liberty will determine if they can request your official transcripts for you. Military students needing a SOC agreement must send official transcripts. Find out more about requesting military transcripts.

Please keep in mind that transcript requirements differ depending on degree level:

Note additional admission documents may be required. Please visit your specific program admissions page to learn more.

  • Graduate Certificate Programs - You will need your official transcripts on file for an admission decision.
  • Master Degrees - You can gain an admission decision on unofficial transcripts; however, official transcripts will be required after 60 days. Please note: Unofficial transcripts can be used for acceptance purposes when a transcript request form is also submitted.
  • Postgraduate & Doctoral - You need your official transcripts on file for an admission decision.
     

You may fax, email or mail your unofficial transcripts.


 Step 3 – Start the Financial Aid process

Step 4 – Enroll in your first courses

Congratulations on your acceptance! Once your FAFSA is complete, you are ready to enroll in your first classes.

To get started:

  • Log into ASIST, select the "Student Tab" and then select "Registration."
  • Once there, follow the prompts to register for courses.
    • Make sure to consult your degree completion plan and course guides to identify the best courses with which to start.
    • If you would like assistance in registering for your first set of courses, our Admissions Counselors are available by calling:
      • Undergraduate: (800) 424-9595
      • Graduate: (800) 424-9596

Step 5 – Complete Financial Check-in and Start your Courses

Once you are registered for classes, log in to your ASIST account to complete Financial Check-In.

Keep in mind:

  • After registration, it takes 3-5 business days for your FAFSA to be processed and on file.
  • The sooner you complete Financial Check-In, the more payment plan options available.
  • Ask about redeeming a book voucher with your Financial Aid.
     

Your professor will contact you the week before your classes begin to make sure you have your books and are prepared for your academic adventure. Log in to Blackboard and be sure to complete your Course Requirements Checklist on the start date of courses.
