As you begin the admissions process, we know that it can seem overwhelming. That is why we have designated 5 steps so you can enjoy a seamless enrollment process with LUOA.
Before enrolling, please be sure to review the following materials:
Apply to the track that best meets your needs. Whether you are interested in our full- or part-time K-12 , full- or part-time Dual Enrollment, full-time K-8, full-time high school, or even an associate degree track, LUOA is excited to partner with you on your educational journey. An admission application can be submitted online or over the phone with an admissions counselor by calling (866) 418-8741.
Please note: K-12 students will need to submit a birth certificate as part of the application process. Students applying to LUOA must be between the ages of 4-19. Students applying to Kindergarten must reach the age of 5 on or before September 30, of the school year for which they are applying. Students who are 19 years old, and will not be 20 on or before August 1 of the school year in which they are applying, are only eligible to enter LUOA if they have successfully completed 11th grade and are entering as a senior. Students who will be twenty years of age on or before August 1 of the school year in which they are applying, will not be permitted to enroll in Liberty University Online Academy.
Claiming your student’s account is an important step in the admissions process. Claiming your student’s account will generate a username and password for him or her to access the curriculum.
Note: Parents will need to set up their own account as well so that they can use it to complete Financial Check-In and other tasks.
To make submitting your student’s admission documents quick and easy, we have a Student Onboarding Checklist that you can log into (with your parent account) and see everything you need to submit in one convenient place.
K-12 students will need to submit a birth certificate as part of the application process. Admission cannot be granted to those who are 19 years old and will not be 20 on or before August 1 of the school year in which they are applying.
After you claim your student’s account, the documents you submit may differ depending on the specific track that you have applied for:
No additional records are needed.
Up to date records need to be sent to LUOAdocuments@liberty.edu. In most cases for K-8 students, this is satisfied with their most recent report card. Official records are not required at the time of admission, but must be submitted no later than the end of the student’s first year.
Full-time High School
Students must provide the most up-to-date transcript and report card if necessary. Official records are not required at the time of admission but must be submitted no later than the end of the student’s first year.
*Students who complete Dual Enrollment while enrolled full time in High School with LUOA will receive a high school diploma upon completion of their high school curriculum.
Part-time Dual Enrollment
Students who are interested in dual enrollment must provide high school transcripts that show the following: completion of at least 12 high school credits, completion of 10th grade in its entirety, and at least a 3.0 GPA. For students with a 2.7-2.99 GPA, a letter of recommendation from a school administrator is required.
Associate of Arts
Students who are interested in the Associate of Arts track must provide high school transcripts that show the following: completion of at least 12 high school credits, completion of 10th grade in its entirety, and at least a 3.0 GPA. Official records are not required at the time of admission but must be submitted no later than the end of the student’s first year. Students must also submit college transcripts for Dual Enrollment courses they would like to transfer in. Only 6 credit hours may be transferred, if applicable. Students must complete prerequisite high school courses. Each Associate of Arts track has a certain number of high school courses that must be completed in order to be eligible to begin the program. These are outlined on the Degree Completion Plan (DCP) of each Associate of Arts track.
Effective Nov. 1, 2022, if your child is in grades 9-12, plans on attending LUOA for high school, and has completed any secondary education or college-level academic coursework outside of the U.S., they must have their international transcripts evaluated course-by-course by a credential evaluation service provider that is a member of the National Association of Credential Services (NACES). LUOA recommends families to work with International Education Evaluations, but a list of all approved service providers can be found at NACES.org. If your child is in grade 8 and plans on transferring any courses for high school credit, they must have these evaluated as well.
After your student claims his or her account, Admissions will review your student’s records to determine if he or she will need to take an entrance exam. We will discuss your student’s upcoming courses with you after the student completes the exam. Upon your approval, the admissions counselor will register your student for classes on the selected start date.
The final step is to complete Financial Check-In (FCI). After you are registered for courses, you will receive an email with instructions on how to complete this. After completing FCI, an orientation course will become available to your student. You will receive instructions for accessing the curriculum via email by your student’s official start date. We will send the email to all email addresses on your student’s file. This will include your student’s new Liberty email address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please be sure to check your email frequently in the weeks before your student’s start date to ensure you don’t miss any important information concerning your student’s upcoming LUOA school year.
For questions about Financial Check-In, please call your admissions counselor or Student Accounts at 866-418-8741.
