Lincoln University participates in the William D. Ford Direct Loan and the Pell Grant programs. The Federal Student Financial Aid program is directed to assist students and parents who cannot otherwise meet their educational expenses. In determining eligibility for available financial aid, the U.S. Department of Education requires each student to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at: www.fafsa.ed.gov and to list Lincoln University (institution number: 00697500) as the preferred college. A Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) is essential in the completion of the FAFSA and should be obtained as a first step at: www.fsaid.ed.gov. The eligible students must complete: i) Entrance Counseling and the ii) Master Promissory Note (MPN), at the website: www.studentloans.gov. Students must complete exit counseling each time they drop below half-time enrollment, graduate, or leave school.
Regular students at Lincoln University enrolled in a degree program (BA, BS, MBA, and MS) and having financial needs are eligible to receive Federal Student Financial Aid (FFA) if they are U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or belong to immigration categories described on www.studentaid.gov. Students must also meet requirements described on the FSA website.
