Liberty University Online Programs Book Voucher Information

Online book vouchers are an easy way for you to utilize financial aid funds to cover books and other materials for graduate and doctoral programs, or to set up a payment plan to cover the cost of books over the span of a few months instead of all at once. Book vouchers are requested during the Financial Check-In process after you have completed any Financial Aid requirements you may have and after you have registered for classes.

Procedure for Using Book Vouchers

  1. If you are planning to use Financial Aid, please complete the FA process. First-time financial aid borrowers must complete the online loan application and entrance counseling to receive financial aid.
  2. Next, register for courses!
  3. Once you are registered, you can visit MBS Direct’s website to look for your courses and identify how much your books will cost.
  4. You will then need to complete Financial Check-In, during which you will be able to request a book voucher.
    • Be sure to include estimated shipping cost in your book voucher amount to make an accurate book voucher request.
    • If you are an undergraduate student, you will not be able to request a book voucher through Financial Check-in. Instead, you will need to email from your LU email with the following information:
      • The amount of book voucher being requested
      • The semester in which the book voucher is being requested
      • Your student ID
    • The online book voucher amount you request will be submitted to the online bookstore that Liberty partners with, MBS Direct. The book voucher funds are submitted to MBS Direct within the next business day (Monday through Friday).
    • It is suggested that you request your book voucher at least two weeks before the start of the sub-term in which you are enrolled, to allow ample time to ship the course materials.
  5. Within two business days of requesting your book voucher, you will receive an email in your Liberty webmail account with the book voucher number from MBS Direct.
  6. After receiving this email from MBS Direct, you may then call (800) 325-3252 or go online to MBS Direct to order course materials up to the value of your book voucher.

*Please be aware that book vouchers cannot be issued to online students for Residential courses or Resident students for online courses.
