College For A Weekend (CFAW) is a great opportunity for church youth groups, school groups and other types of groups to experience Liberty University. Bringing a group is easy and has its perks. 

While at CFAW, you are welcome to participate in any of the activities your students enjoy.  From the Thursday evening Welcome Rally to Friday classes and Convocation, we hope you will take the time to experience all Liberty has to offer.

In addition, all group Leaders registering and making payment for 10 or more eligible students can receive a free hotel room and meals for the weekend!  At least 10 students must be registered and paid 24 calendar days prior to your chosen CFAW date.

The free hotel/meals promo deadline is:

  • October 17, 2016 for the November CFAW
  • January 23, 2017 for the February CFAW

Group leaders who do not meet the eligibility requirements during Check-In will need to secure and pay for their own accommodations. For area hotel listings, please visit our local accommodation page.


Registration steps

All groups must be pre-registered. However, the same costs and eligibility guidelines established for individual registrants apply to students in groups. More information can be found on our CFAW homepage.*



Group Leader Account Setup Tutorial

Create a group leader account by visiting the LU Event Registration page.  Please input all of your information into the form accordingly and know that your organization's information will not be needed during this step.

You will set up a personal profile with a username and password.  You will need this username and password in order to access your registration and be able to register for future CFAW events.



Group Registration Tutorial

Once your username and password are established, log in and select "register your group."  Then, select which weekend you would like to sign up for.  During this step, be sure to fill in your organization's information.  Once complete, select "submit," and you will receive an email confirming the registration of your group name.
