  • Liberty will super score both the ACT (all sections of subtests) and the SAT (Math and Evidence-Based Reading and Writing or Critical Reading only)
  • A transfer student’s GPA (12-24 credit hours) and best SAT/ACT scores will be used to determine his/her academic scholarship using the charts below:
