Admissions Requirements

Learn how to navigate the process for applying for a bachelor's degree (BBA, BA or BS), master's degree (MBA or MS) or doctoral degree (PhD).

Undergraduate Admissions

Admission to bachelor's degree programs at Lindner is based on a holistic review, often including the applicants’ grades, test scores, classes taken, extracurricular involvement and activities, letters of recommendation, and essay.

Math preparation is significant in the application review process, and we require students to complete at least precalculus prior to enrolling in Lindner. During their time in Lindner, students will complete 5-6 hours of calculus as part of the required curriculum. Having a strong math foundation in high school that includes precalculus and/or calculus prepares students to be successful during their college career.
