Act Now – and Early – to Join the Liberty Family in Fall 2021

Are you excited to start your college journey? We want to make the transition from high school or another college/university to Liberty as smooth as possible for you.

At Liberty, we’re committed to helping our students succeed and thrive. One way we do that is by not having strict admission deadlines, allowing you to apply whenever it’s most convenient for you.

However, by acting early and meeting all four of our priority deadlines, you can compete to win one of twenty-five scholarships. And the sooner you apply, the sooner you can receive an admission decision and take the next steps toward attending Liberty!

3) Confirm Your Attendance

Early Action Deadline: April 30, 2021

Financial Check-In (FCI) is the process where you will choose your housing tier and dining plan and, most importantly, secure your enrollment at Liberty! Complete this step by April 30, 2021.

Pro-tip: We recommend completing FCI sooner to lock in the best payment plan and housing options available (typically opens in early-January).

4) Register for Classes

Early Action Deadline: June 15, 2021

The last early action step is to be registered as a full-time undergraduate student. This means having anywhere from 12 to 18 credit hours on your schedule by June 15, 2021. Registration typically opens in April, so you’ll have plenty of time to find the right schedule for you.

Early Action Scholarship Contest

Once you have completed all four Early Action Deadlines, submit a video to compete for one of twenty-five $2,000 scholarships.
