Your Next Steps
First, congratulations on your acceptance to Lincoln University! Now that you have been admitted and are part of the LU family, our goal is to make your transition to an active student as smooth as possible. To accomplish this we offer a New Student Orientation program both online and in person designed to acclimate you to the University experience, introduce you to the foundations of Lincoln pride, and prepare you for the classroom work you will need to engage on your path to graduation. For new freshmen entering the University in the fall we also provide a ‘Week of Welcome' designed to make sure you are introduced to everything LU has to offer you as a new member of our family!
As a new student you are REQUIRED to attend New Student Orientation either online or in person. During orientation you will be introduced to the wide variety of opportunities and supporting services that will be available to you as a student. You will receive detailed information on the financial aid process, managing your student account, submitting required documents (e.g. immunization records), and registering for courses. Individuals with detailed expertise and knowledge will be available to you at each step of the process.
When completing your Intent to Enroll form you will be given an option to sign up for either online or in person orientation, the process for both is the same. Students preferring in-person orientation will have several dates to choose from. Space is limited and so students are encouraged to complete the enrollment process as early as possible to guarantee a spot for whatever specific day you prefer; there is no limit for the number of students who choose the online option. Please keep in mind that completion of New Student Orientation is REQUIRED for all new students (transfer, returning, and new freshmen)! First time freshman beginning in the fall are also required to participate in the ‘Week of Welcome' and will receive information regarding the schedule of events.
PLEASE NOTE: the $150 enrollment fee is NONREFUNDABLE and REQUIRED for registration into New Student Orientation!
Completion of the Intent to Enroll form for either Summer or Fall of 2022 will make you eligible for registration in New Student Orientation. Students will receive notification of when New Student Orientation has been opened for those terms, as well as the scheduling of in-person New Student Orientation options, dependent upon which one the student chose during completion of the Intent to Enroll form.
