Beyond Barriers Summer Transition Program

The Beyond Barriers Summer Transition Program is an immersive 10-day orientation program designed to equip students with documented disabilities for a smooth transition to Liberty University.


Students will move in early to their fall dorm assignment, dine in the new dining hall, complete UNIV 101 (1-credit course), and connect with fellow students in a variety of engaging activities. Sessions will include introductions to key services and departments across the university, group outings to get familiar with the campus, and interactive training to improve self-regulation and self-determination.

We have partnered with the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) to provide workshops for students that focus on workplace readiness, independent living skills, and self-advocacy.

The Beyond Barriers Summer Transition Program is scheduled from August 4 to August 13, 2024. Applications will be open for submission starting February 1, 2024.

The Program Fee of $1,845 includes housing (early move-in), meals, UNIV 101 tuition, books/materials, activities, peer mentoring, and a t-shirt.
