Liberty University’s online Transfer Evaluation Team helps you seamlessly transition between any previously attended accredited college(s) and Liberty University to receive transfer credit for online courses potentially. Part of being an online Christian college is that we want to be good stewards of your time and money. We understand that you have worked hard for the college credit you have earned and desire to be awarded as many transfer credits as possible toward your online degree completion. We work hard to ensure that you do not have to repeat an equivalent course that you have previously taken through a regionally or nationally accredited college or university. Liberty is military friendly and can review work-related credit based on military or career experience.
As an online Christian university, we are thankful for our military service members who defend our country. We pride ourselves as a military friendly school and want to ensure that if you have a service background, you receive credit for your experience. Students who have served in the military have training and expertise that may qualify them for college credit.
Some of this credit may show on a Joint Services Transcript, or on individual transcripts. For steps to retrieve your transcripts for military credit review, please review the military transfer credits page.
Many students have worked in their field of expertise for long enough that they have accumulated work-related and on-the-job training, or have completed nationally-recognized professional credentials. Liberty University’s online programs can award credit from these kinds of professional experience sources through a review process called Experience Plus. Liberty will allow up to 30 hours of Experience Plus credit that will be awarded in the form of transfer credit. Liberty allows a maximum of 90 hours of transfer credit for a bachelor’s degree.
If you have any questions or concerns during the transfer process, see the transfer credits FAQs or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org one of our experienced evaluators will answer your questions as soon as possible.
Liberty University allows residential or online courses for transfer credits for our online undergraduate degrees, online master’s degrees, and online doctoral degrees. The exact number of transferable credits depends on degree length, graduation requirements, individual degree plan arrangement, and other academic policies. Learn more about the specific transfer credits policies for your degree program.

After substitute teaching for three years in the school our children attended, I was offered a full-time teaching position that required me to earn a degree over a three-year period. I was starting out with only six college credits, but with a wealth of knowledge in both education and business that I thought could translate into university credits. After extensively researching online schools all over North America, I found Liberty University to be the one that would best allow me to turn my experience into college credits.
It has been a real stretch to teach full time, operate my own part-time tax business and pursue my degree all at the same time... but I have had the unconditional support of my husband and family, and Liberty University employees were a great help throughout this time as well. Thank you, Liberty, for helping me turn my experience into credit, secure my career and realize a dream.
