International Students

International students are an important and significant part of our campus community. Our commitment to international student education sets the standard for private, residential institutions. International students are encouraged to get involved in the campus experience by participating in extracurricular athletic teams, clubs and organizations, and leadership opportunities. Lincoln College welcomes international diversity, and our application is your first step to joining the Lynx family.


To apply you will need to submit:

1. The free application for admission

2. Your official high school transcripts, including an official course-by-course evaluation from a foreign credential evaluation agency.

3. IELTS or TOEFL scores. An ACT or SAT score may be submitted in place of TOEFL only if the student’s native language is English.

Scholarship Opportunities

Lincoln College does not award federal financial aid assistance to international students, however, international students are qualified to apply for Lincoln College scholarship and grants with the same opportunities as domestic students. This includes scholarships based on  athletics and fine arts talent, merit-based, and annual and endowed.
