Next Steps and Orientation

next steps

It's time to become a Blue Tiger!

Now that you've been admitted to Lincoln University of Missouri, we want to help you transition to being a student here as smoothly as possible. Before you begin, there are a few steps to take.



As a new student, you are REQUIRED to attend Orientation. Don't worry! You'll definitely want to. Our Orientation program is designed to help you get ready and comfortable in your new life at Lincoln, and to boost your Blue Tiger Pride in the classroom and beyond.

A one-time $150 enrollment fee is due at the time of registration. This one-time fee secures your place at LU as an incoming freshman or as a transfer student for the 2022-2023 academic year.

During Orientation, you will be introduced to Lincoln University through various activities and sessions, and begin meeting your fellow students. You will also register for classes and receive all the information you'll need to start your academic journey!

We offer several Fall Orientation sessions. You may select an attendance date that works best for you. We also offer a Transfer and Summer School Student Orientation designed specifically for students in those categories.

Sign Up!

Regardless of which Orientation you attend, it's a full day of information and excitement. Space is limited, so please register now.

Once you have completed Orientation, you are ready to begin your Blue Tiger journey. First-time freshmen students are REQUIRED to attend Freshman Week in addition to Orientation.
