    Apply Online

    Or print the application, fill it out, and email a copy to International@liberty.edu.

    Application Deadline

    The time needed for processing a visa application and making travel arrangements varies for each student. This means there is no definite application deadline. However, we recommend that you apply at least three months before the semester in which you plan to attend begins. This will allow enough time for our office to process your application and for you to schedule your F-1 visa interview.
