Invest in Your Future Today

The college enrollment process is a series of big decisions — and you want to feel confident you’re making smart ones.

So, before you submit your fully refundable $250 Enrollment Deposit, it’s important you find out why.

Most schools require some sort of deposit during the enrollment process — that’s normal. Some use it as a firm RSVP, others apply it toward housing or something similar.

At Liberty, your Enrollment Deposit gives you access to additional scholarship funds — up to $10,000 worth! And the earlier you submit it, the more benefits you have available.


What kinds of benefits?

  • Scholarships like the Champion Award – more than 80% of our students receive this need-based $8,000 scholarship that is spread out over four years at Liberty.
  • The opportunity to live like a college student for four days on Liberty’s campus in Lynchburg, Va., at College For A Weekend (CFAW). You’ll attend classes, stay in a dorm, eat in our award-winning dining hall, and hear from a leading influencer in entertainment, business, government, or ministry — for free! (saving you $50)
  • A free application! When you call and speak to an admissions counselor, you can apply and submit your Enrollment Deposit at the same time — and the application fee will be on us. (saving you another $50)
  • Early Deposit Award – receive up to $2,000 in awards for your first year at Liberty.

Fall 2020 Students – deposit by August 15, 2020, to receive the full $250 Early Deposit Award!

Spring and Fall 2021 Students – deposit by August 31, 2020, to receive the full $2,000 Early Deposit Award!

If you’re a high school junior, and you’re getting ahead of the game by submitting your Enrollment Deposit now, you’ll lock in the highest possible scholarship amount, get to attend one CFAW for free (at any point throughout your junior or senior year), and not have to worry about taking any other steps until Financial Check-In opens in January of your senior year of high school.

Making smart decisions throughout your enrollment process can make a big impact on your college education — and whatever comes after graduation. Contact us today to learn more.
