Policy Language

Liberty University’s minimum unweighted Grade Point Average (GPA) is 2.00 on a 4.00 scale, however, meeting this minimum standard does not guarantee acceptance. All transcripts are converted to a 4.00 scale. Applicants who fail to meet the minimum required GPA will be evaluated on other indicators of ability to perform satisfactorily at the college level and may be admitted on Academic Caution or Probation.  All students accepted on Academic Caution or Probation status will be limited to 12-14 semester hours of coursework including:

MENT 100 – Foundations for Academic Success or
ASCS 101 – College Learning Strategies

These courses are designed to help students develop reading and study strategies necessary for success in college.

Policy Rationale

To inform prospective students of the Academic Caution and Academic Probation admission status and related requirements.
