The School of Accelerated Degree Programs was founded in 1975 under the name Lindenwood College for Individualized Education (LCIE). Our school has rich history focused on helping adult students attain their educational goals while managing jobs, families, and community service obligations. Our goal is, and always has been, enhancing the educational experience we provide for our students. To this end, we continually work to update our curriculum in all academic disciplines, improve our instructional methods, and enhance our student services.
