Lynchburg, VA (Vocus) September 20, 2010
The benefits that a community college offers are numerous on their own merits. For students in Virginia, though, there are host of additional opportunities available if they consider transferring to Liberty University.
Liberty University has a system-wide agreement with the Virginia Community Colleges that features several student benefits, including:
- Guaranteed admission to Liberty University for graduates of Virginia’s 23 community colleges who have earned an Associate degree and a grade point average of 2.0 or higher.
- A waiving of the application fee for those candidates who are graduates of an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or Associate of Arts and Sciences program.
- Guaranteed acceptance of all transferable credits earned with a grade of A, B or C.
- All general education requirements satisfied for Liberty University, with the exception of religion requirements and program prerequisites, for those Liberty students who complete a transfer-oriented degree program at a Virginia Community College.
The benefits for transferring students are easily accessible. Virginia Community College students planning to attend Liberty University upon completion of an Associate degree should declare intent to transfer to Liberty University through a community college advisor prior to graduation. Advisors can help students prepare to meet the requirements of a transfer-oriented degree program, to meet deadlines and to follow procedures.
For more information about the benefits available to students transferring from Virginia Community Colleges, please contact Wendy Morales, Director of Online Marketing, at 434-592-3018 or wmorales(at)liberty(dot)edu.
