The Lindenwood University Honors College offers students a special opportunity to be recognized for excellence and extra effort in their courses. Graduating with University Honors is the highest award Lindenwood bestows.

This achievement is announced at graduation, and the recipient wears a purple braid at the ceremony. "University Honors" also appears on the student's diploma and transcript. All courses completed for Honors credit are designated as such on the student's transcript. The president of the University also presents a certificate to those graduating with University Honors at the Honors Convocation.

University Honors are reserved for exceptional students who demonstrate intelligence, initiative, and perseverance in fulfilling requirements beyond those asked of others. Meeting these expectations exhibits their commitment to excellence.

The Honors College will be transitioning to a new process in the 2019-2020 academic year. Students currently enrolled in the Honors College will continue to complete the requirements set during the time of their acceptance into the program.
