Lindenwood University evaluates students for admission based on academic achievement and merit. This is determined by the applicants’ former high school academics (grade point average and class rank), university work, and ACT/SAT scores. At the undergraduate level, applicants will submit record of academic work and experience, official transcripts noting grade point average, and ACT/SAT results for consideration. Graduates are accepted on a more flexible standard; the school seeks to admit students with a desire to learn demonstrated through academic background rather than meeting specific standards. The university does require official transcripts showing record of bachelor’s degree earned, a completed application, fee, and record of GPA. Lindenwood accepts students from all nationalities and backgrounds.
