Lionel’s admissions policy is oriented to adult learners, including members of the military, who have previously completed high school or undergraduate courses, military training, or earned credit by examination. For admission into an academic program, students must submit evidence of minimum required education dependent on program requirements, and a government-issued photo ID. Graduate degree-seeking students must submit an essay along with their application. This institution does not accept ability-to-benefit students.
Lionel University does not discriminate against and provides equal opportunity to, all qualified persons, without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age, disability, veteran status, or any other category protected by local, state, or federal laws.
Lionel University Admissions Team reviews an applicant’s expressed goals and assists the applicant with the submission of any required documentation, including official transcripts. Once a prospective student is admitted into a program, he/she will be notified of acceptance via email.
As the University meets its enrollment goals, the University will keep the educational interests of all prospective students and the University at the forefront of admissions and recruitment practices. As such, Lionel University will provide accurate information to assist all prospective students in making informed application and enrollment decisions. This includes information about University admissions, costs and other information that will allow students to determine whether a campus is a “good fit” for them. All admission counselors will abide by local, state and federal laws (e.g., confidentiality and incentive compensation) applicable to the outreach, recruitment and admission practices related to undergraduate outreach, recruitment and admissions will adhere to the guidelines explained in detail below.
Additionally, eligible Service members are directed to speak with their Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within their Military Service prior to being enrolled at Lionel University. This is to ensure that Service members understand their own eligibility for Tuition Assistance and their potential financial responsibility toward the school. If an eligible Service member decides to use TA, educational institutions will enroll him or her only after the TA is approved by the individual’s Service. Service members will be solely responsible for all tuition costs without this prior approval. This requirement does not prohibit Lionel University from pre-registering a Service member in a course in order to secure a slot in the course. If a school enrolls the Service member before the appropriate Service approves Military TA, then the Service member could be responsible for the tuition. All Military TA must be requested and approved prior to the start date of the course. The Military TA is approved on a course-by-course basis and only for the specific course(s) and class dates that a Service member requests. If a military student “self-identifies” their eligibility and the Service has not approved the funding, then the Service member will be solely responsible for all tuition costs, not the Service.
The student must give written notice to the University as timely as possible of the United States military activation (either federal orders to active duty or state orders to activate National Guard Troops), a permanent change of station (PCS), deployment orders, training orders, or any other military orders that will interfere with the student’s ability to complete their course(s). (Timeliness will be determined by the facts in each case.)
Alternatively, at the time of re-admission, the student may submit an attestation of military service that necessitated the student’s absence from the school.
Students ordered to military service are permitted the option of either completing their course(s) at a later date without penalty or withdrawing from the course(s)
with a full refund of fees paid. If a student chooses to withdraw, the student’s record shall reflect that the withdrawal is due to active military service.
In certain circumstances, a student may request an extension and if approved, the student will have an additional thirty (30) days to complete all coursework. Extension requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and are approved in instances where doing so supports the academic success of the student.
If the student decides to withdraw from the class, a grade if “I” will be earned and the class must be retaken upon return to the University. The “I” grade will not affect the student’s satisfactory academic progress.
Lionel has an A+ BBB rating and is proud to be accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission.
