Residential Military Benefits

Why Should I Verify My Military Status?

When you are first getting started at Liberty University, it is important that you submit military verification documentation to our office, so we can update your military status in our system. Confirming your military status by submitting military documentation will give you access to the following benefits at Liberty University:

Military Verification Through ID.me

Liberty University has partnered with ID.me to create a secure identity verification process that ensures that if eligible, you will receive the LUO Military discounted tuition rate.

New Students: Please submit your Liberty University application prior to verifying your military status. This will ensure that your application is processed promptly and will provide our team with the necessary information to assist you in the subsequent steps, including the verification of your military status through ID.me. You will verify your service during our application process through ID.me.

Current and Recently Applied Students: To take advantage of the benefits you may be eligible to receive, please verify your military status through ID.me in the myLU portal. If you have completed military verification through ID.me while completing your most recent Liberty application, you do not need to recomplete this verification. If you apply to a new program, change degree levels, or break enrollment, your military status will need to be re-verified through ID.me. Please direct any questions or concerns regarding your benefit eligibility to our Office of Military Affairs. 

Military Spouses (as defined by Liberty University) should to verify their military and marital status through ID.me using their own credentials at mylu.liberty.edu. Once this verification is successfully completed, they should submit copies of the state-issued active Driver’s License* for both themselves and their spouse.

*A state-issued active Driver’s License serves as valid photo identification, which is required for consideration of Liberty’s military benefits. Acceptable forms of photo identification must include name, date of birth, gender, and a photo. If you are unable to submit a Driver’s License, we may also accept a Passport or DMV identification card. Due to government regulations, we are unable to accept Military Identification cards for verification of military service or personal identification.

Submit your documents directly in your Student Checklist. If these document requirements are not listed on your Student Checklist, you may submit documents to the Office of Military Affairs by email: LUOMilitary@liberty.edu or fax: (434) 455-1287. This documentation will be reviewed within 3-5 business days. We will follow up regarding your benefits eligibility through your Liberty email account at that time. Benefits are not awarded retroactively so please be sure to submit your documentation before your first semester begins!

Priority Enrollment for On-Campus Veterans

Liberty University offers residential military students the opportunity for early registration each semester. Sections for residential courses may be limited, so priority enrollment allows current service members and veterans to be among the first students to gain access to course registration each semester.

How does it work?

All residential students who have verified their status as a current military service member or veteran will be assigned a unique PIN number before registration opens each semester. The PIN will be emailed to students and allow access to course registration on the early registration date associated with Special Groups and International Students. More information about the specific dates in the registration schedule will be posted on the Registrar’s Course Registration web page each semester.

Who qualifies?

Students who are currently serving (Active Duty, Reserve, and/or National Guard), as well as military veterans with a general/honorable discharge may qualify upon submission of supporting military documentation.

How do I get it?

Students are required to verify their military status to receive this benefit by verifying their military status through ID.me.
