Exciting new pilot program:
This Spring, students will have the opportunity to try out some new 8-week residential courses. These courses offer the same learning outcomes and high quality faculty instruction as our full semester courses, but are taught in 8 weeks. This allows your student to take 5 classes (or 15 hours) a semester, but only have 4 classes in session at any one time. See an example schedule below. Keep an eye out for these courses when registration opens up for the Spring term.
Students planning to use Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits, Post-9/11 GI Bill® (Ch. 33), Montgomery GI Bill® (Ch. 30 and 1606), the Reserve Education Assistance Program (Ch. 1607), or the Survivors’ and Dependents’ Education Assistance (Ch. 35), will receive a certain amount of benefit payment based on their course load (referred to as “rate of pursuit” or “training time” by the VA). It will be important to select courses in terms and sub-terms that will allow you to remain at a full-time status on a daily and monthly basis in order to receive the most from your benefit eligibility. Please contact a Military Affairs representative to discuss your schedule and benefit eligibility to ensure you understand what VA benefits you can expect to receive based on your enrollment selection:
Taking a D-term course may delay your financial aid disbursement and refund, if eligible, until the course starts. Please see our disbursement page for additional information on how this process works at Liberty.

Due to the compacted structure of online courses, only students with a 2.0 GPA or higher will be eligible to register using the Course Registration Tool.

Registering for an online course has the potential to cause a change to your student account, financial aid, visa status, military benefits, or NCAA status. Please check with the below points of contact to verify registration in an online course will not cause any negative changes to your account:
Undergraduate students who fall in one of the below categories, should meet with their academic advisor. You can request an advising appointment or find more information about advising and registration here. Your success is important to us.
Financial Check-In confirms your courses and financial arrangements, as well as housing and dining if applicable. It is important to complete this online process every semester – even if you have a 0 balance, payment arrangement, or are a faculty/staff member. It is recommended that returning students complete FCI during their assigned registration time.
Be sure not to miss the FCI deadline, because your courses may be dropped and a late fee applied. To ensure you do not miss the deadlines, please visit Student Financial Services’ page with more information on FCI. You can also view payment plan options here.
Regular attendance in courses is expected throughout the length of the term and/or sub-terms. The U.S. Department of Education requires that every university monitor the attendance of their students. For information about what constitutes as attendance, you can view our Policies and Procedures page.
