Accreditation and State Authorization


Lincoln University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and a member of the North Central Association (NCA). HLC's most recent comprehensive evaluation of the University was completed in 2013.

At Lincoln University, an annual Institutional Data Update is completed by the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment and the Office of the Provost.
