Graduation FAQs

Do students advancing from one grade to the next within LUOA participate in a graduation ceremony?

At this time, the only LUOA students who can participate and be recognized in the graduation festivities are eligible seniors who are finishing the 12th grade.

Is there a Degree Completion Application Fee?

Yes. There is a $75* fee for all students – whether they participate in Commencement activities or not. This will be added to the student’s account in February. This fee covers things such as the diploma, diploma covers, shipping costs, etc., and will need to be paid prior to the student receiving their diploma or final transcript.

See our Graduation page for more information.

*Fee will vary based on program type.

Do students receive their diploma at graduation?

Students do not receive their diploma at graduation. Once their last class is completed, their courses are reviewed – and if it is determined that they have met all necessary requirements, their degree is conferred and processed. The diploma will be mailed to the student’s home.

Is there a limit on how many people can attend graduation?

No. At this time, Liberty University has not put any limits on how many people can attend graduation. Tickets are not required to attend.

How can my student connect with other LUOA seniors?

Join the LUOA Senior Class Club!
