Frequently Asked Questions
While you wait for your free college credit transfer evaluation, you may have many questions about how Liberty University’s official transcript evaluation works, or how online classes can help you meet your career goals. Below are some common questions about Liberty’s transcript evaluation process and how Liberty’s transfer credits work for you.
Can I apply for a doctorate if I don’t have a master’s degree?
Depending on the discipline, some doctoral degrees allow you to enter the program with a bachelor’s degree, while others require that you complete a master’s degree first. You can view our online doctoral degree options to see what may fit your educational background, and you can discuss your goals with an admissions counselor to get started.
Can Liberty’s online transcript request get my transcript if I have a balance?
If you have an outstanding balance with the institution which holds your official transcripts, Liberty University will be unable to obtain these records with a transcript request form. You will need to contact your previous school to work out a plan to remove the balance before Liberty can request these transcripts on your behalf.
Can you transfer classes from community college to Liberty University?
Community colleges are a part of state education networks that fulfill accreditation requirements of the Department of Education for higher education. There usually are very few issues with transferring in course credit taken from a community college.
Can you transfer credits to an online college if you went to a residential campus?
As long as the school you previously attended is sufficiently accredited, then whether or not the course was taken online or in a classroom will not usually matter in the transfer evaluation process. However, the specific course that you receive credit for may vary depending on equivalency guidelines.
Do Liberty University’s credits transfer to other colleges?
Yes! As a regionally accredited school, our course credits should transfer to other universities.
Liberty University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). This accreditation means that Liberty University meets the academic and quality standards set for our region by the Department of Education, which are equivalent to any regionally accredited school in any of the 7 regions in the United States.
Many of Liberty’s schools and programs also have additional accreditations which demonstrate our quality and dedication to excellence.
Is there an equivalency guide for what specific courses I might be credited?
Liberty’s free unofficial transfer consultation will provide a first look at how your credit may transfer to your new degree plan. This evaluation will provide an equivalency guide which an associate from the academic advising office can review with you to explain how your knowledge and skills apply to your intended degree, or if there may be a better fit available.
Please note: If the information on your official transcripts is different from the unofficial transcript, there may be differences in the final result of your transfer evaluation.
