Dual Enrollment Classes – Associate Degree Tracks

Associate Degree Tracks

Through our accredited, online dual enrollment program, students can track toward earning an associate degree through Liberty University upon the completion of all high school coursework. As a result of taking college courses during 11th and 12th grade, students will save both time and money on their bachelor’s degree, regardless of which university they decide to attend. Each college course a student successfully completes on these tracks earns both college and high school credit and also aligns with an associate degree awarded by Liberty University.

 

What benefits are there for full-time students graduating with LUOA in high school?
  • Your student will earn their high school diploma from an accredited high school and will track towards an associate degree simultaneously.
  • LUOA will ensure that your student is enrolled in the correct courses.
  • There is no hassle trying to determine which courses fulfill certain requirements on the University Degree Completion Plans.
  • Once your student begins taking Dual Enrollment college courses, the LUOA Associate Tracks (found below) are locked. This means that if the requirements change in future years, your student will not need to adjust their schedule. LUOA and Liberty University have an agreement that allows full-time students to follow old requirements if there are updates that would change their schedules.

When should my student get started?

  • This year-round, online dual enrollment program begins the summer after their 10th grade year and is completed by May of their 12th grade year. The entire program can be completed from the comfort of your own home, as all of our dual enrollment classes are online.
  • We recommend starting with LUOA in the 9th or 10th grade, even as a part-time student, so that your student can begin to experience how to be successful through an online education platform.
  • Students should follow coursework in the 9th and 10th grades as closely as possible to ensure a seamless transition into an associate track.

What Associate degrees are available?

  • LUOA offers 15 unique associate degree tracks (outlined below). The degree tracks below align with associate degrees offered by Liberty University, and they have been tailored to ensure all high school requirements are met for graduation with LUOA.
  • Click on the links below to see which track best suits the needs for your student. If you are unsure of a degree track at the bachelor’s level, we would recommend pursuing the Interdisciplinary Studies track, as it provides some flexibility in scheduling.

My student is not planning to graduate high school with LUOA; do you offer part-time options?

  • Yes! Part-time students not graduating with LUOA can still take up to 60 college credits through the Dual Enrollment program and track towards an associate degree. However, the conferral of the associate degree earned through Liberty University Online will look a bit different.
  • Your student will need to apply to Liberty University Online upon completing the courses and provide the final high school transcript. The University will then look at the completed courses and ensure that your student has met all requirements.
  • It is important to note that part-time students not graduating through LUOA are responsible to review the updated Degree Completion Plans every year (Do not follow tracks below). Because students are not actually enrolled in a degree track through the University while taking courses through LUOA’s Dual Enrollment program, the University will expect they follow current requirements. Typically, any updates on degree plans from year-to-year are minor, but it is important that part-time students review between their 11th and 12th grade years.

Can my student earn college credits through Dual Enrollment but not pursue an associate degree?

  • Absolutely! Students are able to hand-select their dual enrollment courses and earn up to 60 college credits.
  • Please review our Dual Enrollment page for more information.
