Dual Enrollment Admissions Requirements


Edge Program Admissions Requirements for Dual Enrollment

The Edge Program for dual enrollment is for Liberty Online Academy juniors and seniors. Students in the program can begin taking college courses as early as the summer after 10th grade. We recommend that students enroll in no more than 2 courses (6 credits) per sub-term (8 weeks) to ensure academic success.


High School Student EDGE Admissions Requirements

  • Current Unofficial High School transcript. This can be a copy of an original transcript or a print out from the school’s website.
  • Demonstrate record of academic excellence (2.7 GPA or higher).
  • A letter of recommendation from your high school guidance counselor is needed only if your GPA is below 3.0.

Edge Program Policies

  • Students cannot enroll in classes until all admissions requirements have been met.
  • Edge Dual Enrollment students are enrolled through Liberty Online Academy and are only allowed to take courses selected for the Edge Program. These courses were selected to meet the general education requirements of most colleges and universities.
  • Once a student has been awarded a high school diploma, General Equivalency Development certificate (GED), or other high school graduation certificate, they will no longer be able to enroll in LUOA Edge classes and will need to apply to a college degree program (resident or online).
  • Students must take courses specific to completion of the high school diploma as a first priority. The A La Carte program limits the maximum credits a student can take to 36; however, with review and approval, the maximum can be increased to 60 credits.
  • Students are required to take Math and English assessment tests before enrolling in university courses. This helps us determine the best course placement for your success.
  • Students who fail an Edge/Dual credit course may repeat the course one time. The student must pay the tuition for the repeated course. The original and second attempt grades are listed on the LUOA high school transcript and factored in to the student's overall LUOA GPA. If a student fails a second course, they will be removed from the Edge program. The student may continue to enroll in LUOA high school courses but will not be allowed to enroll in additional Edge courses.
  • Financial Aid is NOT available for Edge students.
