Lincoln University Accreditations

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 2023. 

Because institutions necessarily evolve over time, HLC regularly collects information from each to ensure they are still operating in a manner that warrants accreditation. At Lincoln University, an annual Institutional Data Update is completed by the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment and the Office of the Provost.
