Residential Student Registration
You can register from your computer or mobile device using the Course Registration Tool.
- Registration dates, times, and policies apply to current residential students only.
- Level classification is based upon successfully completed and in-progress courses.
- Registration will be open online only for those who meet standard admission, advising, and registration criteria.
- New students must complete FCI and assessments prior to registration.
Resident Advising Services
Advising Services can assist you with planning future semesters and setting goals for graduation. If you are unsure about what courses you should be registered for, this may be a good first step to ensure that you register for classes that will be most beneficial in the completion of your degree and academic goals. Visit the CASAS webpage for more information on advising services and to set up an appointment. Please note, you as the student are responsible for verifying that the course(s) you are taking are required for degree completion. Financial Aid may not be given for courses that are not needed for your degree(s). In addition, your degree will be conferred once all degree requirements have been successfully completed.
Residential Registration Schedule
Students have the opportunity to take 8-week residential courses. These courses offer the same learning outcomes and high-quality faculty instruction as our full-semester courses but are taught in 8 weeks. This allows a student to take 5 classes (or 15 hours) a semester, but only have 4 classes in session at any one time. See an example schedule below. Keep an eye out for these courses when registration opens up for the Spring term.
Class #4 & Class #5
Students planning to use Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits, Post-9/11 GI Bill® (Ch. 33), Montgomery GI Bill® (Ch. 30 and 1606), or the Survivors’ and Dependents’ Education Assistance (Ch. 35), will receive a certain amount of benefit payment based on their course load (referred to as “rate of pursuit” or “training time” by the VA). It will be important to select courses in terms and sub-terms that will allow you to remain at a full-time status on a daily and monthly basis in order to receive the most from your benefit eligibility. Please contact a Military Affairs representative to discuss your schedule and benefit eligibility to ensure you understand what VA benefits you can expect to receive based on your enrollment selection: Taking a D-term course may delay your financial aid disbursement and refund, if eligible, until the course starts. Please see our disbursement page for additional information on how this process works at Liberty.

Due to the compacted structure of online courses, only students with a 2.0 GPA or higher will be eligible to register using the Course Registration Tool. Please note, that residential courses that are available to resident students as either a hybrid or in a strictly online format do not fall under these restrictions. Registering for an online course has the potential to cause a change to your student account, financial aid, visa status, military benefits, or NCAA status. Please check with the below points of contact to verify registration in an online course will not cause any negative changes to your account:
Financial Check-In (FCI)
Financial Check-In confirms your courses and financial arrangements, as well as housing and dining if applicable. It is important to complete this online process every semester – even if you have a 0 balance, payment arrangement, or are a faculty/staff member. It is recommended that returning students complete FCI during their assigned registration time. Be sure not to miss the FCI deadline, because your courses may be dropped and a late fee applied. To ensure you do not miss the deadlines, please visit Student Financial Services’ page with more information on FCI. You can also view payment plan options here.
Regular attendance in courses is expected throughout the length of the term and/or sub-terms. The U.S. Department of Education requires that every university monitor the attendance of its students. For information about what constitutes as attendance, you can view our Policies and Procedures page.
