How to Submit Admission Documents

Get Started with Financial Aid

Get started setting up your financial aid by following the below steps and submitting the forms that apply to you.

As an accredited university, Liberty allows eligible students to use federal and private grants and aid. Make sure you have your FAFSA completed prior to class registration. Even if you intend to pay out-of-pocket through one of Liberty University’s interest-free payment plans, have military benefits, or have corporate tuition assistance, you may be eligible for additional benefits through financial aid.

It can take up to two weeks to process, so we recommend that you submit your FAFSA as soon as possible.

FAFSA Application

Use Liberty’s school code (010392). You must complete the FAFSA to be considered for financial aid. If you have more questions or concerns about the FAFSA, see more about the FAFSA.
