What Being a Special Student Means

Want to attend Liberty but not quite ready to pursue your degree? Try being a special student!

When you apply as a special student, you’re giving yourself the opportunity to take a few courses at Liberty University without the pressure of pursuing a degree. Maybe you’re interested in early or dual enrollment, taking classes to transfer back to another school, or you just want to observe a few classes. Either way, being a special student is a great opportunity to get the feel for Liberty’s academics minus a full commitment.

Take a look below for the available special student statuses and additional information about being a special student.
