Lincoln University of Missouri Celebrates Significant Academic Improvements Over the Last Three Years

Abbey Tauchen | May 30th, 2024

Lincoln University is proud to announce a substantial improvement in the academic standing of its full-time, main-campus student population over the past three years. This remarkable progress underscores the resilience and dedication of LU students, faculty and staff, as well as the University's commitment to academic excellence.

The number of students achieving a GPA of 3.0 or higher, qualifying for the Dean’s List, has steadily increased:

  • Spring 2024: 561 students
  • Spring 2023: 519 students
  • Spring 2022: 504 students

This 11% increase from spring 2022 to spring 2024 reflects the hard work and dedication of Lincoln University students in pursuing academic excellence.

In addition, the number of students maintaining a GPA of 2.0 or higher, indicating good academic standing, has also shown significant growth:

  • Spring 2024: 535 students
  • Spring 2023: 519 students
  • Spring 2022: 471 students

This 14% rise from spring 2022 to spring 2024 highlights the effectiveness of the support systems and resources available at LU, fostering an environment where students can thrive academically.

One of the most encouraging trends is the 25% decrease in the number of students on probation or suspension since Spring 2022. This decline demonstrates the University's successful efforts in identifying and supporting students who need additional academic assistance.
