Application Policy & Procedures

The faculty members of the School of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences (SONAHS) are committed to Lindenwood University’s mission of wholistic student development through academic excellence and enrollment of a professional, talented student body. Admission policies and requirements are established by the nursing faculty and are congruent with the mission of the University and the SONAHS. Admission guidelines are specific to the academic goals of each program and student population. Applicants are evaluated for their potential for academic success and their potential to contribute to an enriching educational environment while pursuing higher education.
