Policy Information

Issuing Office

Office of the Provost

Affected Parties


Policy Language

Bachelor of Science program curriculum will be structured to include 30 hours of general education requirements and UNIV 101/104, 12 hours of Christian Life and Thought, and a uniform number of courses in the major across delivery formats. When a program is offered in both residential and distance education (online) format, the degree requirements will be identical in number of courses and rigor. Other undergraduate-level programs must conform to the University’s adopted standards for general education and Christian Life and Thought and must demonstrate uniformity in number of courses and rigor of requirements.

*Some slight variance may be introduced by requirements that may be satisfied by exam, such as INFT coursework, or by waiving/completion of requirements based on other adopted policies such as Prior Learning Assessment.

Policy Rationale

To maintain the quality, integrity, and rigor of all Liberty University undergraduate degrees.
