Experience Liberty University
Liberty University has resumed Daily Campus Tours and ExperienceLU events. We encourage visitors to also meet with our team virtually and get your questions answered with our Admissions Office.
Learn how to experience all that Liberty University has to offer through our virtual experiences.
In accordance with state guidelines, we require all guests to bring and wear face coverings during their visit. Group sizes will be limited and social distancing guidelines will be enforced.
Please note that prior to check-in, you’ll be asked the same health screening questions that our students, faculty, and staff answer every day. This is to ensure both your protection and the protection of our Liberty community. If you or someone in your party indicate you’ve been experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19, you may be asked to return at a different date for the safety of your group, other DecideLU participants, and LU faculty, staff, and students. Thank you for understanding.

AP, CLEP, and Dual Enrollment: Is It All Really Worth It?
In this session, you’ll learn which of your hard-earned AP, CLEP, and dual enrollment credits will transfer. Additionally, you’ll walk through the process of integrating transfer credits into your Liberty degree completion plan, so you can graduate early!
Your Support Team: We Are Here for You
Behind every great student is a crew of people supporting him or her. This session will introduce you to Tutoring Services, Academic Peer Mentoring, the Career Center, our Office of Disability Accommodation Support, and other offices and people who are here to help you succeed both at Liberty and in life.
Surviving Freshmen Year
College is a time to make lifelong friends, and the first step is usually leaving the comfort of your dorm room. In this session, you’ll learn all about how to get plugged in on campus through movie nights, sports, whatever you like to do, and how to develop meaningful relationships in the process.
Life After Liberty
As important as the next four years in college are, so is what happens after you graduate. Learn about the many resources that are available at the Career Center to help students and alumni find internships and careers after graduation, and hear about some of the amazing things our alumni have gone on to do.
Funding Your Future
We know paying for college can be a tricky process, so we will equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to navigate the FAFSA, loans, and grants. You’ll also learn tips from our expert team on how to obtain outside scholarships and what institutional scholarships LU offers.
Student Panel: What is Liberty REALLY Like?
“What even is the Rot?” “How do you get around when all the buildings look the same?” “Is the Starbucks line ever not long?”
Ask a panel of current LU students any questions you’re dying to know the answer to so you can understand what life at Liberty is really like.
Dorm Life, Dining & Wellness
With more food than you could imagine on campus, learn how to maintain the balance between comfort food and healthy options, as well as how to develop a community of friends and settle into your future home-away-from-home.
