Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.50 Average Rating
Lincoln University is the 1st Historically Black College University (HBCU) in the United states founded in 1854. The history and achievement Lincoln possesses can inspire any student once they walk on the yard. From the greats like Thurgood Marshall, Frederick Douglas, Langston Hughes and more, Lincoln builds legacy's every year once a student graduates and starts their career.
R.D.W from Harrisburg, PA
Lincoln University is a great environment. Most students, especially going away alone are nervous and are home sick really fast but the students at Lincoln are very warm and friendly. The university also has a lot of history and many very prestigious people have attended Lincoln.
Jasmine from Brookhaven, PA
Lincoln is defiantly worth the money.
Sharique from Fort Dix, NJ
Lincoln is definitely worth every dollar you will spend in tuition. The overall college experience on Lincoln's campus is a tremendous encounter which you will not endure anywhere else.
Nicholas from Washington, DC
As an out of state student for New Jersey, Lincoln University is cheaper than some schools that are in state. Since Lincoln University is the first HBCU founded in 1854, the administration is continuing to keep the campus up to date. Recently, the communication program received new radio and television programming equipment. Also, Lincoln gives merit award scholarships. If you have a good GPA and SAT score coming out of high school, Lincoln could award you money towards tuition, room and board, and/or fees.
Yasmin from Willingboro, NJ
With the location of the campus, it keeps your focus on your campus life as opposed to the various activities going on in the city. You certainly learn a lot even in your first year. You get an extensive knowledge about the campus you're attending and the legacy that you can be proud of. It certainly is a great investment for any individual.
