Maximum Time-frame


Degree requirements must be completed within a maximum time frame. Federal law requires a maximum time frame of no more than 150 percent of the published length of the undergraduate program. Hours earned at Lindenwood University and accepted transfer hours are included in this time frame. For an undergraduate program that requires 120 credit hours for completion, the maximum attempted hours would be 180 (120 x 150 percent = 180).

SAP Monitoring

A student’s SAP will be evaluated at the end of each academic year. All periods of attendance will be included in this evaluation regardless of whether the student received financial aid. This evaluation will include a measurement of student’s progress set forth in the qualitative standards (GPA) and quantitative standards (credits).
