- Let us know you're interested in becoming a Lion by doing our Recruit Questionnaire.
- Submit your official Lindenwood application online.
- Arrange to have your transcripts and test scores sent to Lindenwood Admissions.
Once you've completed these three steps, notify Coach Macy and wait. If accepted, you'll be awarded an Academic Merit Award and further financial aid considerations can be made for rugby.
- As you wait for your acceptance, it's wise to plan a visit to see campus and experience Lindenwood for yourself!
- During this time, our coaching staff will want to watch any video you may have. Highlights are welcome but a full game works fine. Be sure to let us know how to identify you.
- You can also ask one of your previous coaches to write a note to us on your behalf.
Once we have enough information on you as a player, Coach Macy may choose to award you financial aid for your on-field abilities to combine with your Academic Merit Award.
For American students, you may also need to evaluate need-based aid awarded to you based on the results of your FAFSA.
Grueling trainings, long hours on the bus, early morning class, is it for you? Once you understand your cost of attendance, it's time to decide. Should you choose Lindenwood, you'll be sent a roster agreement and be expected to pay your enrollment deposit. Before you know it, you'll be on campus and having the collegiate rugby experience you never thought possible.
