Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are online summer courses?
    • At Lincoln University online courses are courses that utilize a web-based Learning Management System (LMS), (currently, Canvas), to present all of the face-to-face classroom work. Online courses are fully asynchronous, which means you complete the course work on your own time during each week by meeting the specified due dates each week. Participation is required each week. Failure to complete work during any week will jeopardize your enrollment.
