Lincoln University of Missouri (LU) is partnering with State Technical College of Missouri as a guaranteed admission partner. Through the Guaranteed Admission Program, you will be enrolled as a student at both LU and CLC and then may transfer to LU after meeting certain criteria, including specific coursework and a minimum number of transferable credit hours. Students who meet the requirements and receive admission into the program will also receive the Lincoln Connection Scholarship, which affords them in-state tuition.

At Lincoln and State Technical College of Missouri, education is within reach! At Lincoln, you will find power in together — where the people walking beside you, those who came before, and those leading the way are all here for your success. One of a select group of HBCUs in the nation, Lincoln offers flat-rate tuition, plus merit and need-based scholarships, to help transfer students find success and achieve their dreams.
