Lincoln College Offering Price Match Program

Lincoln College Offering Price Match Program

March 24, 2022

Lincoln College is offering the Price Match program to students seeking an affordable, quality education.


“With the uncertainty of the last few years, we want to do everything we possibly can to reduce the stress of making college decisions. Our Price Match program makes shopping for college easy and transparent. That is more important now than ever before,” said David Gerlach, president of Lincoln College.


The Price Match Program states that if a student receives a better financial aid package from another qualifying college or university, the student can provide Lincoln College with a copy of the competing financial aid award letter.  If the student meets all eligibility requirements, Lincoln College attempts to not only match the net price of the competing offer but may include an additional $2,000 award ($1,000 per semester) as part of the Lincoln College financial aid package.


The Price Match Program reflects Lincoln College’s commitment to providing quality education at an exceptional value, allowing students who qualify to attend at less than the price offered by competing institutions.


Any full-time student in the traditional program, including freshman and transfer students, can apply for the program if they meet the minimum eligibility requirements.


While the Price Match Program is a merit-based program, Lincoln College offers many other merit and need-based scholarships and grants. In fact, 100% of Lincoln College’s traditional full-time students receive some form of institutional financial aid. All other scholarship and loan programs remain in effect as well.


“We understand that shopping for college can be a daunting task, especially for students who may be the first in their family to attend college. We view the Price Match Program as just one more tool that our financial aid counselors have available to cut through the clutter of college pricing,” Gerlach said. “Lincoln College offers scholarships or grants to all full-time traditional students and the Price Match program is just one option that we have available to make sure that every student can afford college.”


While the Price Match Program requires acceptance to a baccalaureate degree-granting institution, Lincoln College remains a hybrid institution offering undergraduate, graduate, and online degrees.


Lincoln College also offers its highly successful and affordable Accelerated Bridge to Education (ABE) program for working adults. The ABE program offered on four Illinois campuses in Lincoln, Normal, East Peoria, and Oglesby, allows adult students to earn a bachelor’s degree while attending class one night a week in concentrated five-week sessions. Students may also take advantage of the asynchronous online degree options, offered in eight-week sessions.

To expedite any financial aid application, students and parents should include the Lincoln College code number 001709 on their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
