Special Notice Regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic

Roaring Return

For important updates on Lindenwood University campus safety precautions and associated information from public health officials, please visit our Roaring Return page and the CDC's COVID-19 site. Complete the Initial Assessment Survey to report symptoms, exposure, or positive test results of COVID-19.


Lindenwood University has made the difficult decision to cancel all on-ground commencement ceremonies for Fall 2020.  We are extremely disappointed that we are unable to host in-person commencement ceremonies in November; however, we are also making this decision with the best interest of health and safety for our students, their families and the entire Lindenwood community. Though it will not be the same, we will honor all our graduates virtually at the end of the semester in December.  Hosting a virtual commencement ceremony in December will not impact students’ degree conferral.
We wish every Lindenwood graduate could have the commencement ceremony they deserve. Given the cancelation of another weekend of commencement celebrations and due to the uncertainty of health and safety in the spring, we will not be able to invite our 2020 graduates to join us at future commencement ceremonies. These students now join our Lindenwood Alumni Association, and we are proud of the legacy they carry on. We look forward to welcoming all Lindenwood alumni to campus and celebrating them at future alumni events.
