Transfer to Liberty University

We realize that one of the most important questions for transfer students is how their credits will transfer for admissions. If you want to determine how courses you have already taken or plan to take will transfer, please follow the steps below.

Liberty has a Guaranteed Admission Agreement (GAA) with the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) for students in transfer-oriented associate degree programs. Additionally, you can find courses offered at other schools that are preapproved to transfer as Liberty courses by using our Transfer Equivalency Guides. Liberty also offers scholarship opportunities for transfer students.

 

Step 1: Unofficial Transfer Consultation (UTC)

Liberty University is pleased to offer a free transfer consultation service designed to help you make the best decision regarding where to pursue your degree. Through this Unofficial Transfer Consultation (UTC), we will give you a general idea of what to expect regarding the application of your transfer credits to your chosen degree program. This will determine how many courses you may satisfy and roughly how many courses you may still need in order to finish your chosen degree program.

UTC Requirements and Instructions:

  • The UTC service is provided to prospective students who would like to know how much credit might be granted before applying for admissions. Students who have applied to Liberty for a future term but who have not yet been accepted may also use this form.

  • The UTC form and instructions are available on the Unofficial Transfer Consultation site.

Please note that an official evaluation of transfer credits will be provided once a student has been accepted to Liberty and has submitted official transcripts from all institutions attended. In addition, students accepted to Liberty for a future term who are interested in determining how credits they plan to take will transfer may submit a Transient Approval Form.

 

Step 2: Apply

Submit your online application or contact an Admissions Counselor at (800) 543-5317 to submit your application over the phone.

 

Step 3: Submit Admissions Documents

In order to evaluate your credits, we must have official transcripts from every college or university you have attended. Please review the Transcript Request Form. Transcripts must be sent directly from the school(s) to Liberty University in order to be considered official. Send transcripts to:

Liberty University Admissions
1971 University Boulevard
Lynchburg, Virginia 24515

To be considered for acceptance, please submit the following documents according to your current status:

If you are transferring without an associate degree or applying as a dual-enrolled high school student:

  • Submit college transcripts
  • Submit high school transcripts
  • Submit SAT/ACT scores
  • Submit admissions essay

 

If you are 22 or older transferring without an associate degree:

  • Submit college transcripts
  • Submit high school transcripts
  • Submit admissions essay
  • No SAT/ACT scores are required

 

 If you are transferring with an associate degree:

  • Submit college transcripts
  • Submit admissions essay
  • No high school transcripts are required

You can find the essay instructions here.

Step 4: Check Your Email

After your transcripts have been evaluated, we will email you a copy of the evaluation. The evaluation will show how the courses you have taken are transferring to Liberty University.

Utilize the Suggested Course Sequences and Degree Completion Plan for your major. Be advised that only a professional advisor can confirm your degree completion timeline.

*Note: All students must complete 23 credits of Religion courses.

If your courses have not transferred as you think they should, continue to Step Five.

 

Step 5: Transfer Evaluation Inquiry Form — If necessary

If you are certain that a course you have taken is equivalent to a course in the Liberty University course catalog, consider submitting the Transfer Evaluation Inquiry Form. Make sure to review the guidelines and instructions before completing the form.
