Lincoln College is a private liberal arts college, fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. In a small, residential campus setting, the college uniquely empowers students to realize their full potential. Lincoln College has long fostered a personal approach to education. It has had a tradition of personal education before the concept became universally popular. The tradition, guiding mission, faculty philosophy, student services, and low faculty-student ratio enable the college to provide the important element of individualized attention that makes the difference between failure and success for many students.
