Anyone interested in receiving federal grants, work study, loans or Liberty University scholarships must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
- Complete the FAFSA online. To determine eligibility for federal and some state and institutional aid. All U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens are required to complete the FAFSA each school year.
- Use the IRS Data Retrieval if available to save time with submitting information.
- Include Liberty’s school code (010392) on your FAFSA.
- Liberty’s FAFSA priority deadline is March 1 for the Fall semester and October 1 for the Spring semester. We recommend that you renew your FAFSA no less than four months before you intend to start classes.
- If you are selected for Verification, submit all documentation requested as soon as possible to prevent a delay in your aid processing or a loss of your aid eligibility.
