Official Test Scores
Liberty University is offering test-optional admission for Spring, Summer, and Fall 2021 applicants. We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has made the college application process difficult, as many SAT and ACT test sites have been closed for the past 6+ months. If your testing plans have been disrupted, don’t worry — Liberty has options!
- The Writing section of the SAT is not considered for acceptance or Liberty scholarships.
- All standardized test scores are super-scored, meaning we will consider your best composite ACT score or your best SAT score based on the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing sections and the Math section.
- Liberty University now offers award-winning Prepworks® ACT and SAT preparation courses with money-back guarantees.
After reviewing your application, additional information or documents may be requested by the admission committee.
