Lincoln College: Normal Campus: Applying


Congratulations on taking that first step towards your future. We are excited that you have chosen Lincoln College-Normal to be a part of that!

Before you apply, make sure you read and understand the information below. To help you get started, we will need to know if you will be applying as a:

The Academic Year

Lincoln College-Normal runs on a two semester academic calendar with start dates for the fall and spring semesters.  A limited amount of summer courses are offered that start in May and July.

If you are looking to enroll in the fall you should complete your application. If you are still in high school, we encourage you you do this during your senior year. Although Lincoln College-Normal has rolling admissions, meaning applicants are invited to submit their applications to the university anytime up until the beginning on the semester begins, our student housing fills up pretty quickly. If you intend to live on campus, we strongly recommend that you apply early to ensure there are rooms available in our residence halls.

If you are looking to enroll in the spring you should apply between September and January 1 to ensure you are able to complete the admissions and financial aid process. You will also be required to complete and submit other paperwork for housing (if you intend to live on-campus), health services and the business office.

After You Apply

You will receive letters in the mail from the admissions office specifying any additional information we need from you to finalize your application for admission. We will also use email to communicate important information to you, so it is essential that you provide us with an email address that you check often so you can receive this information in a timely manner.

If you change your mailing address, email address, or phone numbers, please don’t forget to contact the admissions office and provide us with your updated information so we can get a hold of you during the admissions process.
