Resident Course Registration


Please note, you as the student are responsible for verifying that the course(s) you are taking are required for degree completion. Financial Aid may not be given for courses that are not needed for your degree(s).  In addition, your degree will be conferred once all degree requirements have been successfully completed.  

Residential Student Registration

Important Reminders

  • Registration dates, times, and policies apply to current residential students only.

  • New students must complete FCI and assessments prior to registration.


  • New 8 Week Residential Classes

    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. 

    Class #1

    Class #2

    Class #3

    Class #4

    Class #5


    List of 8 Week Residential Courses

    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.

Online Course Registration for Residential Students

Online Terms:

  • A-Term - Full 16 weeks
  • B-Term - First 8 weeks
  • C-Term - Middle 8 weeks
  • D-Term - Last 8 weeks

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.

Please note, that residential courses that are available to resident students as either a hybrid or in a strictly online format do not fall under these restrictions.

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:

Advising: Residential Undergraduate Students

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.

Request an Advising Appointment

  • All freshmen (0-23 hrs)
  • First-semester transfer students
  • All juniors and seniors (48 hrs and above) who declared or changed their major during the previous semester.
  • Student-Athletes (NCAA), School of Engineering, and any students who have an Academic Hold (AW, AP, AS, AD).

Advising: Residential Graduate Students

New graduate students can contact residentgraduate@liberty.edu or call 1-877-298-9617 to speak with a Graduate Advisor.

Financial Check-In (FCI)

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.

Complete Financial Check-In

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.
