Undergraduate Admissions Requirements

Grade Requirements

The minimum requirements to apply to Liberty University's on-campus program are as follows:

  • 17 ACT (composite) or 800 SAT (math and critical reading)
  • 2.0 high school GPA (unweighted)

Meeting the above criteria does not guarantee acceptance to Liberty, but are simply minimums to apply. Acceptance decisions are based on a case-by-case basis by an admissions committee.

We will evaluate a student's SAT or ACT scores based on a superscore (if multiple tests are received). Our average GPA is 3.36, average ACT composite score is 23, and average SAT score is 1030 between the math and reading sections. In order to be eligible for an academic scholarship, students must have at least a 3.0 GPA on an unweighted 4.0 scale and a 20 ACT composite score or 950 SAT score (math and critical reading sections).
