Earn your Associate of Arts Degree in High School
In our Associate of Arts track your student is awarded their Associate's Degree from Liberty University upon completion of his or her high school graudation requirements with Liberty University Online Academy.
This full time, year-round, program begins the summer after their 10th grade year and is completed by May of their senior year. Because this is a full time program, your student does not need to do any other coursework outside of the A.A. track. This allows your student to complete the entire program from the comfort of your own home.
Each college course a student successfully completes fulfills a requirement for high school graduation and also fulfills the requirement for an Associate's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Liberty University. In order for your student to earn both their diploma and their degree, the courses must be taken as outlined by LUOA.
Upon completion of the high school graduation requirments, dually enrolled students may also obtain an Associate Degree from Liberty University. Your student will have earned 61 college credits for approximately $10,000. This same A.A. degree costs 50% more when earned as a “college” student! In addition, earning 61 college credit hours in high school is 75% cheaper than earning that same number of credits as a residential student at Liberty University. The high school A.A. track gives your student the opportunity to save time and money in their education pursuit and is the perfect stepping stone toward earning their bachelor’s degree!
For those considering enrollment into the Dual Enrollment Associate program, please note that this program begins the summer following a student’s 10th grade year. Please see the Associate of Arts Course Sequence to ensure that all prerequisites have been met prior to enrollment. For students who will be Sophomores in the 2016/2017 school year, applications MUST be submitted by April 15th, 2017 in order to be considered for enrollment into the Dual Enrollment Associate program. Please note that enrollment in dual credit courses after this date will need to first meet our High School graduation requirements and may not satisfy the total number of credits needed to earn the AA degree.
