The Lindenwood College for Individual Education (LCIE) program was designed specifically for working adults. Courses are scheduled on the quarter system and a student earns nine (9) semester credits during each quarter with a total of thirty-six (36) credits possible during a calendar year. Classes meet thirteen times in twelve weeks generally from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm one night a week. Class enrollment is limited to 12-14 students and writing and oral skills are emphasized. Courses are taught using the Socratic Method emphasizing student interaction; thus, students benefit from the experiences that peers bring to the classroom.
Courses in the LCIE program are grouped in Clusters. Each cluster consists of three related courses designed to offer the student the best combination for analysis and synthesis of the material.
A total of 128 credit hours is required for graduation. Fifty-Five credits meet general education requirements. In most degree programs, fifty-seven (57) hours (including a capstone course) are taken in the student’s major, and the remaining hours are completed through elective coursework.
Each student is assigned a Faculty Advisor (FA) who guides the student through the program. The student is required to meet with the FA one time per term. The FA will provide an overview of the student’s progress, assist with course registration, and serve as a resource for the student.
