Lincoln College

Undergraduate Catalog 2013-1014: Lincoln College

Freshmen (First-time Students)

Acceptance to Lincoln College is based on a student’s high school record and standardized test scores. In select cases, a personal interview and letters of recommendation are required. Generally, students with an ACT composite score of 16 and a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher may be admitted without restriction. Those with an ACT composite score of 15 or less may be admitted upon review by the Academic Review Committee. Students who are accepted through the Academic Review Committee are accepted on a conditional acceptance and must register for the Lynx to Success Program.

Deposit and Refund Policies

A $25.00 application fee must be included with student’s application for admission to Lincoln College. In addition, the college requires that a $75.00 enrollment deposit and, if residing in the residence halls, a $125.00 housing deposit be paid upon acceptance to the College to guarantee housing and classroom space. While the application fee is nonrefundable, the deposits are refundable until May 1 if students decide not to attend Lincoln College.

Application Procedure

Based upon the number of credit hours for which a student desires to enroll, the application procedure may vary. All procedural steps are required.

Upon Acceptance

Confirmation of Early Registration

Students must pay tuition and fees or make arrangements for deferred tuition payments (if needed) on a prescribed date before classes begin. This step confirms the class schedule.


For students who have not registered early by attending a S.O.A.R. event, a regular registration period will be held prior to the start of classes each semester.
