  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.00 Average Rating
Lincoln University has helped me understand that the world in which I will enter is a competitive place. Too many times in the year youth of all races are discouraged and not equipped with the necessary knowledge on being a professional business individual. Lincoln University has allowed me be a well renown HBCU Ambassador and has allowed me to be able to give back not only to my generation but individuals who come after me with knowledge on how to be successful in this world.
