Formerly known as the Lindenwood College for Individualized Education, the LCIE program has recently changed its name to the School of Accelerated Degree Programs. While the name Lindenwood College for Individualized Education has served the school well for the first 40 years, the new name better represents what students want and what Lindenwood currently offers. Today, the school offers 10 bachelor’s degrees, 11 master’s degrees, and two certificate programs in highly desired fields. Classes are offered at 8 locations in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area as well as online. The future of the School of Accelerated Degree Programs is just as exciting as when the program started in 1975.
