What is the status of Feel the Roar: Admitted Students Day on April 3 and Level Up: Transfer Students Day on April 15?

The in-person format is canceled and the admissions team is working on exciting alternative plans to provide prospective students with an opportunity to see what Lincoln has to offer. Registrants to either event will receive a special package providing access to this unique online event.

Can I take a tour of the campus?

In-person tours of campus are postponed until at least the end of classes. This will be re-evaluated soon.

Will new students still be expected to arrive at the end of August for the fall semester?

At this time, there are no plans to change new student move-in for the fall semester.

Lincoln students come first because they are first. They enter campus gates with dreams, goals and aspirations from around the country and around the globe. They bring to campus their diverse backgrounds and unique experiences. While here, they are taught about a rich history and learn who they are on their academic and social journey. They are supported and mentored by Faculty and administrators as they explore, discover and develop into global leaders grounded in a tradition of excellence.

Lincoln students are afforded an experiential learning experience whether it’s to participate in an event on campus, the local community or traveling abroad they have an opportunity to gain real-world experience in preparation for real life after Lincoln. Come visit the campus or apply online to begin your journey at the first degree-granting HBCU.

Application deadline is May 1 for the Fall Semester and November 1 for Spring Semester.
