Liberty University Online Academy, in partnership with Liberty University Online, offers a program specifically designed for high school juniors and seniors who want to earn college credit while still in high school.
Each Dual Enrollment course earns half a credit toward a high school diploma and between 1-4 college credits towards a college degree. The more classes your student takes in the program, the further ahead he or she will be at any university of their choice! Dual Enrollment courses are different from Advanced Placement (AP) courses in that no test is required at the end of the class. This means that if a student passes the course, he or she has earned the college credit. LUOA, together with Liberty University, provides a Christ-centered Dual Enrollment program.

This concurrent enrollment program is available to all eligible high school juniors and seniors, offering three options for these students looking to earn college credit.

A La Carte Program
The A La Carte option is one of our concurrent enrollment options. This option allows students in 11th and 12th grade to enroll in select college courses in order to earn college credit. The students can earn high school credit from LUOA and college credit from Liberty University for the same course.
Associate Degree Program
The Associate Degree program is a full-time, year-round concurrent enrollment program for students desiring to pursue an Associate Degree while earning their high school diploma. Upon successful completion of their LUOA high school graduation requirements, these students can apply to Liberty University and immediately obtain an Associate Degree. This option allows high school students to get ahead in college while still in high school, tracking toward earning an associate degree at the end of the program.
LUOA”s Certificate program is a less demanding but structured way of getting ahead in college. Your student can earn a certification in one of our many online certificates! This is one of the fastest ways for students to gain needed skills while working toward their long-term educational goals.
The “A La Carte” option of our Dual Enrollment program gives your student the flexibility to enroll in the college courses he or she wants to take throughout different terms in the school year. The “A La Carte” program limits the maximum credits a student can take to 36. However, with review and approval by administration, additional credits may be allowed. This program is perfect for students looking to supplement their current high school schedule and earn college credit early!
The Associate Degree Track is for the determined student who desires to take a full-time college schedule while still in high school. Your student will graduate high school with LUOA while completing requirements toward an Associate degree. A student considering this track needs to be a dedicated, independent learner willing to take courses year-round. The cost and time savings of the Associate track are definitely worth considering; however, the rigor of this program is not for every student. We strongly encourage that you speak with one of our Dual Enrollment advisors to help you decide if the “A La Carte” or Associate Degree track is best for your student!
LUOA’s certificate program can also help enhance your student’s marketability with employers. In addition, these courses can be transferred into an associate or bachelor’s degree!
In partnership with Liberty University’s School of Aeronautics, LUOA high school students can earn college credit for aviation courses through the the A La Carte Dual Enrollment option while they work toward their private pilot’s license. Students must live close to one of our Flight Training Affiliates to be eligible. For more information, see our online brochure and call our admissions office at (866) 418-8741.

If your student requires accommodations due to a disability or illness, please inform our team of academic advisors and email email@example.com for more information.
Don’t wait to use your 529 Savings Plan until your student is in college and courses are more expensive. At LUOA, you can use your hard-earned, tax-free 529 Plan to pay for college courses at a 73% discount through our Dual Enrollment Program while your student is still in high school!
Enjoy the flexibility and convenience of online courses with our Dual Enrollment program. At LUOA, your student can study and complete their assignments whenever and wherever they choose. The courses are offered in convenient 8- or 16-week sessions with up to 8 different enrollment periods every year – meaning your student can earn their Associate of Arts degree while in high school. This can save you and your student time and money on a Bachelor’s degree, regardless of where your student attends college.
Liberty University Online Academy is a K-12 educational institution that allows eligible high school students to enroll in Liberty University Online courses through the Dual Enrollment Program. Liberty University shares all educational records related to dual enrollment courses with Liberty University Online Academy. Those education records can be accessed by contacting the Liberty University Online Academy at (866) 418-8741, LUOAcurrentstudents@liberty.edu, or you can access our Live Chat. If a Liberty University Online Academy student is enrolled in a dual enrollment program or is otherwise enrolled in a postsecondary course, the parent or legal guardian must maintain a PIN that will allow the parent or legal guardian the ability to inspect and review any postsecondary records shared by Liberty University with the Online Academy as part of their student’s LUOA enrollment. Once an Online Academy Student turns 18 or matriculates into Liberty University as a Liberty University student, inspect and review permissions transfer to that student. Students may then remove the PIN via their ASIST student record. If the student wishes to allow their parent or legal guardian continued access to their education records no action is needed.
Using Liberty’s FERPA PIN system, the student may grant permission to release some or all private information to persons in which he or she designates. This can be accessed through the student’s ASIST account. Go to the General Information tab on ASIST, and then select the FERPA Personal Identification Number menu option.
