Understanding the Process

There are a lot of complicated processes in life — the college admissions process shouldn’t be one of them. Neither should the financial aid process.

So, great news! Once your child applies to Liberty, they’ll receive an individualized Student Checklist that will guide them from admission to graduation, walking them through every form, process, and step along the way.

Why is it important for my son or daughter to claim their Liberty account before they’re even accepted?

  • Every applicant’s Liberty account gives them access to their individualized Student Checklist, which will walk them through  getting accepted, registered, and ready for their first semester as a freshman or transfer student.
  • It will also be the main form of communication between your student and the university. They’ll receive emails about scholarship opportunities, deadlines, and other important information, so they should check their inbox regularly.
