A college education is one of the most important investments you can make in your future. The good news is there are many options available for financial assistance, and more than 90 percent of Lincoln students make use of these resources to meet their financial obligations.
The Office of Financial Aid is here to help. Our counselors will work with you to explore resources by combining grants, scholarships, loans, and on-campus jobs.
- Grants may be need- or merit-based and provided by both federal and state government agencies. Most grants do not have to be repaid.
- Scholarships do not have to be repaid and a number of scholarship opportunities exist both on- and off-campus.
- Loans are federally subsidized or unsubsidized and are available through the federal government. For most loans, repayments begin six months after your cease half-time (6-credits undergraduate) enrollment.
- On-campus jobs include work-study funded by government sources, and work-aid funded by the university’s own budget.
Several factors determine the amount and type of financial aid you are awarded:
- Financial need
- The timing of your application (apply early)
- Your willingness to accept various types of aid
- Submission and completion of necessary documentation
- Availability of funds
