Undergraduate Admissions

At Lipscomb, we strive to provide the flexibility to continue your education without putting your life on hold. That’s why we’ve found a way to offer quality degree programs at your pace, wherever you are.

Advance in your profession with help from our experienced faculty. As you learn online, you will grow your professional communication skills and relationships. Gain a mentor and attend professional seminars or grow in other immersive learning adventures. We will teach you how to use research and advance your organizing methods.

Take your pick from a traditional schedule of eight-week classes or a four-month subscription. Some students are able to earn their online degrees within two years thanks to our one-day behavioral assessment center and credit for prior learning.
