Admissions Requirements


Ready to get started? We’re here to assist!

The first step in our admissions process is completing Lindenwood’s free online application or applying through the Common Application. Upon successful completion of your application, we ask that you submit an official college transcript from all institutions in which you’ve attended. Through a holistic admissions approach, additional documentation may be requested to assist us in a full and thoughtful evaluation for acceptance.  Below you will find a check-list to guide you in the process:

We accept official transcripts electronically or by mail. If you are sending your official transcripts by mail, please use the following address:

Standardized Testing

Official standardized test scores (if needed) may be sent through the proper website, or be included on the official high school transcript. If you graduated high school more than 5 years ago, we will not require official test score to complete your admissions file.
