A Track Record of Success With Adult Learners
Lindenwood University has been serving the unique needs of adult learners for more than 35 years with our undergraduate and graduate evening programs. We have 10 comfortable and convenient campuses located throughout the region. Our student body is comprised of students with a wide variety of socioeconomic and academic backgrounds. We welcome students who have been out of school for just a few years as well as those who are returning after many years.

Our admissions counselors, campus directors, advisors and instructors are experts in creating an academic atmosphere that thrives on this diversity and uses it to enhance the educational experience of all students.
