Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC)

Liberty University is part of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Degree Network System (DNS). The SOC organization was founded in 1972 to provide educational opportunities for service members by establishing articulation agreements between colleges and universities to streamline the transfer process for student veterans transitioning to new schools.

Liberty University limits academic residency to no more than twenty-five percent of the degree requirements for all undergraduate degrees for active-duty servicemembers. Academic residency can be completed at any time while active-duty service members are enrolled. Reservists and National Guardsmen on active-duty are covered in the same manner.
