Official Transcript Request

Liberty University’s Online Degree Programs Official Transcript Request Form Process is Easy

We are excited to have you as a Liberty University student! As part of your admission requirements, you need to submit official transcripts from previous college(s) or universities that you have attended. To help you meet this requirement, Liberty University will make every effort to request Official Transcripts on your behalf.

If your previous institution does not allow third-party requests, we will notify you to request the transcript yourself. Additionally, if you have an outstanding balance at your previous institution, we are unable to process your request.

To begin this process, please complete the Official Transcript Request Form. You will be required to log in or sign in as a guest to complete this process.


What is an Official Transcript?

An official transcript is the certified record from a college’s Registrar’s Office (or Records Office) of the coursework a student has completed. An Official Transcript should include the school’s name, the student’s name, courses and credits earned broken down by semester, cumulative GPA, dates attended, and degree and date conferred.

An Official Transcript can also be received through an electronic transcript database provider such as Scrip-Safe, Docufide, Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, or others. The transcript should be sent directly to Liberty via the school’s system. If an email address is requested, use luoverify@liberty.edu.

Once your transcript request has been received, the processing time will depend on your previous institution's response. After Liberty University receives your official transcript from your previous institution, we will complete a transfer credit evaluation within 3-5 business days, and transfer credit will be applied to your file.
