Lincoln College Plans to Resume In-Person Classes for Fall 2021

March 26, 2021

Lincoln College is planning to hold in-person instruction for fall 2021, which begins August 16.


Students were welcomed back to campus for the spring 2021 semester, with not a single case of the novel coronavirus contact-traced to any classroom environment. Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19 throughout the 2020-2021 academic year, positivity rates on-campus have remained low.


“We are looking forward to offering the true Lincoln College experience once again to incoming students. With spring 2021 traditional new student enrollment the highest it has been in eight years, I have renewed hope that some sense of normalcy has been restored,” said Lincoln College President David Gerlach


Lincoln College faculty, staff, and administration continue to assess and modify processes to ensure the health and safety of the campus community. Lincoln College will continue to meet or exceed all mandates, guidelines, and recommendations from state and federal health authorities, including those pertaining to mask wearing and social distancing. The College will also maintain enhanced cleaning protocols.


A traditional residential experience consisting of athletic competitions, small group events, socially responsible dining services, and hands-on learning opportunities is currently available to students. All classes designed for in-person delivery, including traditional, graduate, and the Accelerated Bridge to Education (ABE) courses are expected to be held face-to-face this fall.


“New cases of the coronavirus have declined significantly nationwide and a large portion of the population have been vaccinated, including many who work on the Lincoln College campus. We are ready to offer students the personalized, unique academic experience that we did prior to the pandemic,” Gerlach added.
