The Lindenwood University-Belleville Student Handbook provides you with important information about the organizations, resources, and key dates. It also outlines the responsibilities and expectations of members of the LU-Belleville community. It is especially important that students read "An Understanding of Commitment" and "Campus Policy/Student Conduct" as both sections specifically apply to you. It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of University policies, procedures, regulations, and general information.
I urge you to take the time to acquaint yourself with this Web site and our student handbook and use both as your personal guide for a successful student career at Lindenwood University-Belleville. Additionally, you are welcome to visit our office and discuss opportunities and services with our staff members who are excited to assist you. I wish you great success in all areas you pursue during what can be considered some of the most important years of your life.
