LIU Global may grant life experience credit for work or independent study completed prior to entrance which reflects aspects of LIU Global's curriculum. Credit is not awarded for experience alone, but for what has been learned from that experience. The work or study must have been post high school level and pre-LIU Global acceptance.

Life experience credits are limited to 18 and included as part of the 64 credit maximum students may transfer into LIU Global.
