Lincoln University welcomes transfer students from other colleges and universities. A student who has taken work at a college of recognized standing may be admitted with such advanced credits as the previous record may warrant, but no student who has been enrolled for less than two semesters at Lincoln University will be recommended for a degree.

Transfer applicants should request each institution attended to send to the Office of Admissions at Lincoln a transcript of their academic records. A student must have received 12 transferable credit hours and have a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of a 2.0 (C).

Transfer applicants who are accepted at Lincoln must satisfactorily complete 12 hours of credit with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00 in each of their first two semesters at Lincoln. At least fifteen (15) semester hours in the major field must be earned at Lincoln by any transfer student desiring a degree, and that student must satisfy all other departmental requirements.

As part of their credentials for admission, transfer applicants must furnish a certificate of honorable dismissal from the institution previously attended, a certificate of good moral character from an authorized representative of that institution, and a certificate of health.

Community College Graduates

Lincoln University welcomes outstanding graduates of community colleges. Students who transfer with the Associate of Arts or Associate in Science Degree from an accredited community college with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better will generally receive transfer credit for all courses in which they have earned a "C" or better.
