Liberty Dates And Deadlines

Liberty University’s Online Format

Our online format contains three semesters: fall, spring, and summer.

Within each semester, there are three eight-week sub-terms (B-term, C-term, and D-term) and one semester-long sub-term (A-term) which can range from fourteen to seventeen weeks. 

You can view the full academic calendar from the Registrar’s Office for specific start and end dates and deadlines.
