American Liberty University operates on a semester academic calendar system, with three equal 15-week academic terms in each calendar year. Students in all American Liberty University programs must select, register for and attend a schedule of individual classes, until such time as all of the required classes in the student's enrolled program have been successfully completed.

The student enrollment agreement indicates both the total tuition for the student's chosen program and the per-unit tuition rate for the student's enrollment. Actual student tuition charges for each semester are based upon the tuition rate shown on the student's enrollment agreement. The college earns student tuition throughout each student's program on a strict pro rata basis based upon the total number of units each student attempts, as determined by the number of units registered on the student's Registration Form for each term. The total tuition charged to a student over his/her study program may exceed the total program tuition indicated on the enrollment agreement if the student fails to satisfactorily complete any required classes as registered and must, as a result, repeat the class(es) prior to graduation from the program, or if the student completes classes which are not a part of his/her required program as set forth in the Enrollment Agreement.


American Liberty University offers a unique financial plan for those students interested. We offer an interest free monthly payment plan equal to the number of months for the duration of studies, so the student can complete payment prior to graduation.

Note: Each semester's tuition and fees must be paid in full during same semester, either at the start or with equal monthly payments.


American Liberty University accepts VISA, MASTER CARD, and AMERICAN EXPRESS from students for tuition expenses and textbook purchases.

Students may cancel their enrollment at any time and will receive a refund for the part of the program not taken. To cancel enrollment, students must mail or deliver a signed and dated copy of the Notice of Cancellation form, or a written statement requesting cancellation, to the American Liberty University. Any notification of withdrawal or cancellation, and/or requests for refunds, should be submitted to the American Liberty University in writing.

A seven-day full refund period is in force after acceptance by the University. During this period, all tuition monies paid will be refunded upon written notice of cancellation if received within seven (7) business days following the day of the first scheduled class in the student's program. The Notice of Cancellation must be received by the University within that five-day period to receive a full refund. The $110.00 application Fee is non-refundable.

If students cancel or withdraw after this seven-day period, they may be entitled to a partial refund. Students have a right to withdraw from the University at any time and request a refund for the part of the program paid for but not taken.
