Apply for Financial Aid

There are a number of different types of aid available to help you pay for your education at Lincoln University of Missouri. Federal financial aid is one of the most prominent.

Applying for aid should not feel intimidating. In fact, we want to make it as easy on you as possible. All you need to do to apply is to fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Before you begin, we highly recommend checking out Federal Student Aid's Fafsa4caster. This tool allows you and your family to plan for your college expenses by estimating your eligibility for federal financial aid, including grants, which will decrease the time it takes to complete your FAFSA.

We encourage you to apply for aid as soon as possible after January 1. Start by making your FAFSA ID.

Then, the easiest way to complete your FAFSA and apply for aid is to log in at and apply online. When you fill out your FAFSA, you'll need to include Lincoln's school code. That code is 002479.

You can also fill out the FAFSA form in the myStudentAid mobile app, available on the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android).

If you'd prefer to complete your FAFSA by hand, you can download and print the 2022-23 FAFSA PDF, or request a print-out by calling 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243) or 334-523-2691 (TTY for the deaf or hard of hearing 1-800-730-8913). Fill out your form, then mail it to:
