Transfer Admissions FAQ 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q - Can I find out how courses I have not taken yet will transfer?

A - Yes. If you have not yet applied, you may fill out the Unofficial Transfer Consultation (UTC). If you have applied or have been accepted, please claim your Liberty University account. Next, complete the Request to Take Courses at Another Institution.  

*Make sure to read the instructions carefully. In order for the courses to actually transfer, you will still need to earn at least a "C" and fulfill any other admissions requirements.
 

Q - What is the application deadline?

A -  Liberty has a rolling admissions process, meaning you can apply any time. However, certain priority deadlines may apply. You can apply online by creating an Admissions Application Account, or over the phone with an Admissions Counselor at (800) 543-5317.
 

Q - Will my GPA from my previous school carry over?

A - No. Your GPA will start over at Liberty University.
 

Q - What courses should I take before transferring?

A - Liberty is not able to guarantee that specific courses will transfer. If you look in the course catalog, you can estimate for yourself by looking at the course descriptions. If the courses are similar in scope and content, it is likely that the course will transfer.

*If you attend a community college in Virginia you can look at our VCCS transfer guide to find courses pre-approved for transfer.
 

Q - What are the minimum requirements?

A - Liberty requires students to be in good academic standing at their previous school with at least a 2.0 GPA at the time of transfer. If you are unsure of your status, contact an Admissions Counselor at (800) 543-5317.
 

Q - I have been selected for the Two-Year College Transfer Grant Program. What does that mean?

A - If you are eligible for this grant, you should have been notified by your two-year college in Virginia. For more information, please see the Fact Sheet from the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) website.
