Admissions

At Lincoln University, students like you come first because you are first.

You will enter our campus gates with dreams, goals, and aspirations along with your fellow diverse students from around the country and world. You'll bring in your own unique experience and background, and be part of a proud tradition of excellence at the country's first degree-granting HBCU.

You'll study and learn in one of the many degree or continuing education programs we offer. You will also delve into a wide range of topics that will prepare you to succeed in any field or situation you choose. You'll learn about yourself too: what you value, what inspires you, and ultimately, that you are capable of more than you ever thought possible.

While here, you will be supported and mentored by caring faculty and administrators as you explore, discover, and develop. You'll put your knowledge and new skills to the test in experiential learning environments, including research projects, internships, or study abroad opportunities. You will see firsthand why the U.S. News and World Report named Lincoln one of America's top Historically Black Colleges and a top school for Social Mobility in 2021.

At the end, you'll emerge as a Lincoln graduate, part of an ever-growing alumni community that will connect to you leaders, influencers, and job creators nationwide.

It all begins by choosing Lincoln University. Visit our campus today to discover the life you could lead here, or apply online to begin your journey.
