Since 1971, Liberty University has had one mission: Training leaders to change the world. You have dreams, and it is our goal to help you fulfill them by providing a top-tier college experience.  Here are some reasons you should consider joining over 700 international students at this very extraordinary university.

We Believe...

  • in quality academics. Liberty’s Christian professors are experienced professionals in their fields who also care about those in their classes. 
  • diversity is part of a quality education. Liberty enrolls students from all 50 states and more than 70 countries, allowing you to have a truly world-class education.  
  • college is time to build good habits and moral character, which is why our campus is tobacco and alcohol free with single-sex dorms.   
  • safety and comfort is essential to students and their loved ones back home.  The FBI ranks Liberty, which has its own police force, as one of the top 10 safest campuses in the United States. 
  • everyone should receive practical experience during the college years, so we offer campus employment and internships through our Washington, D.C. and New York City Fellowship programs. 
  • students should learn from accomplished leaders in order to become effective leaders themselves, which is why we bring in famous speakers including U.S. presidents, authors, business leaders, and professional athletes to Convocation, the world’s largest weekly gathering of Christian young people.
  • healthy and balanced living is a necessary part of a quality education.  Our food service consistently ranks as one of the best on any college campus in the U.S. 
  • finances should not be a barrier.  Liberty’s tuition is in the lower 1/3 of all private colleges in the US and all international students pursuing a bachelor’s degree will receive some institutional aid.

Athletics and Activities

Our state-of-the-art recreation facilities such as fitness center, equestrian center, shooting range, and Snowflex ski hill give students many opportunities to take a study break and have fun with friends.  We offer plenty of room on our 7,000 acre campus to hike, bike, run, swim, and play. 

Our dedication to college excellence is displayed not only in the classroom, but also on the court, field, slope, track, and pool. Liberty has 20 NCAA Division I athletic teams including basketball and women’s lacrosse and 40+ Club Sports teams like men’s and women’s ice hockey, basketball, and gymnastics. With 20 intramural sports available, you are sure to find ways to stay active while you pursue your dreams.

International Students

All bachelor’s degree international students qualify for financial aid with academic scholarships for those with high grade averages.  Once you are here, we will help you adjust to life at Liberty and in the U.S!

We support our international students and promote international culture through on-campus workshops and cultural events hosted by our International Student Center. Popular events for students include internationally-themed open houses, cooking demonstrations, and a cultural talent and fashion show. Whether you want to connect with other students or need help with federal regulations, the International Student Center will help you feel at home. 

Your International Student Advisors also provide several resources post-graduation. Students can find help searching for jobs in their fields, pursuing another degree program, or applying for a different visa status. 

During the summer, international students can remain at Liberty, work on campus, enroll in classes, or travel elsewhere.

Location

Liberty is located in Central Virginia and offers students a variety of extracurricular activities, including hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains, enjoying the historic downtown, or traveling in the surrounding area to cities like Washington D.C. and Charlottesville. Liberty operates a comprehensive transportation system, designed to make the campus and the local community accessible through an efficient intracampus transit system, access to the Lynchburg city bus system, and airport/train and bus station services during major campus breaks.
