Make your college tuition more affordable with scholarships. Review the Liberty scholarship packages below, and apply to all that you are eligible for. The earlier you act, the more scholarship opportunities are available.


You must have a FAFSA on file to receive most Liberty aid and all federal aid. If you are selected for FAFSA Verification, you must complete the verification process before being awarded any financial aid.

  • View Aid Disbursement Processes
  • Liberty discounts are applied beginning with the term in which you are approved (they cannot be used toward prior terms). 
  • Most full tuition scholarships cannot be combined with the standard Confirmation Scholarship package. 
  • Most resident scholarships are for prospective, full-time, undergraduate students. Check the award eligibility criteria for details.

General Scholarship Rule (GSR)

Your combined federal grants, state grants, and Liberty aid cannot exceed the combined cost of actual tuition and Tier 2 room and standard board charges ($9,160 per year for 2017-18, see basic cost page). For commuter students, the GSR calculation only includes the cost of tuition since there is no room and board charge, which means federal grants, state grants, and Liberty aid cannot exceed the actual cost of tuition. 

If the combined aid exceeds the total cost as specified, Liberty aid will be reduced to resolve the excess aid. The Federal Pell Grant is not included as a factor in the GSR for Resident students. All Liberty aid is subject to the GSR.

Liberty University, as permitted by federal regulation [34 CFR 668.41], electronically disseminates consumer information, including the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act information. Upon request, the institution will provide a free paper copy. Anyone signing or processing financial aid forms or seeking information or assistance at Liberty University must read, understand, and comply with the requirements disclosed, which are available 24 hours a day at

Liberty University reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of any scholarship at any time at its discretion, as well as suspend or terminate any scholarships.
