In order to be eligible for an academic scholarship, students must have at least a 2.7 GPA on an unweighted 4.0 scale and a 20 ACT composite score or 930 SAT score (math and critical reading sections).


Liberty does accept AP, CLEP and IB exams. For information about AP and CLEP tests, you can look in the course catalog or call (800) 543-5317 to find out if a specific test is accepted. You must take and pass the AP test at the end of the class in order to receive college credit. You are also able to sign up to take CLEP tests at Liberty.

Students who have taken DANTES/DSST exams may submit their official scores to luoadvising@liberty.edu for evaluation and may visit our Liberty University Online website for additional information. Students are able to receive college credit for successful completion of an IB exam if the IB course completed was a higher level course and the student received a score of at least 5 (on a 7 point scale) on the final exam.
