Find Your New Home in one of Liberty University’s Online Programs!
It is our goal to make the transfer process to Liberty University, and a new degree program, as smooth as possible. Our Office of Transfer Evaluations works hard to utilize your previous coursework, training, and experience to give you the fastest, least expensive path to your educational goals. We work to ensure that you do not have to repeat an equivalent course that you have previously taken through a regionally accredited college or university. We also review any eligible credit based on military or career experience. For more information, please visit the Earn More Credit through Prior Learning and Experience page.
If you have any questions or concerns during the transfer process, please visit our transfer credit FAQs page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. One of our experienced Transfer Evaluators will answer your questions as soon as possible.
