International Students and Applicants

PictureWelcome to the International Students Office (ISO) at Liberty International University. The ISO serves all incoming and currently enrolled international students at the Institute.

Liberty International University welcomes students from around the globe. The admissions criteria applied in evaluating international applicants are the same as those for U.S. citizens. All application materials, including transcripts and recommendations, must be submitted online and in English.

Academic Requirements

An international applicant is required to hold a college or university degree equivalent to a four-year American baccalaureate degree. All post-secondary educational institutions you have attended and received a degree from, including technical and professional schools, should be listed on the application form. The complete, formal names of the institutions and the title of any diploma or degree earned must be used.


When self-reporting transcripts for the application, all course names must be translated into English before submission. If admitted to LIU, you will be required to provide an official paper transcript sent directly from each college or university attended to World Education Services (WES), a third-party verification agency. If available, your school should send a transcript in English along with the original language document. The School reserves the right to withdraw any offer of admission if there is a discrepancy between the self-reported transcript and the official transcript.



The LIU Master Program is built upon an immersive learning experience that encourages public speaking, group discussions, and active class participation. To succeed, students must possess a highly developed proficiency in written and oral English.

Those candidates required to take the TOEFL or IELTS must have received at least their unofficial scores prior to submitting their application. Both overall and component test scores must be reported on the application form.

All applicants must request that ETS (for the TOEFL) and/or IELTS send official copies of their scores to LIU.

To obtain information about these tests, visit: www.toefl.org or www.ielts.org.


When to Apply

The Admissions Board strongly encourages international applicants to apply by the second round deadline to allow admitted candidates ample time to address visa issues.
