An Education Built Around You

Lincoln College is a private, independent liberal arts institution offering associate, bachelor, and graduate degree options in multiple formats. Our students excel with the personalized curriculum and hands-on learning experiences.


Affordable Associates & Bachelors Degrees

Despite being a private liberal arts institution, our tuition rates are one of the most affordable choices in Illinois. Furthermore, 100% of full-time students in our traditional programs receive a scholarship or grant, along with free textbooks, parking, and career counseling services every semester. Students at Lincoln College are creative and increasingly diverse. We are committed to providing students with the opportunity to experience academic excellence at an exceptional value.



Liberal Arts Education Based On Student Needs

We have a dozen Bachelor’s Degree programs so that students can pursue their passion, get a great start in their careers or prepare for an advanced degree. But, we also know that many students aren’t ready for a full four-year commitment. At Lincoln College you can get a start on your career, earning an Associate Degree in just two years. And, for adult learners, our ABE program (Accelerated Bridge to Education) allows you to balance your work with school and still earn a degree fast and at less cost than most four-year colleges.
