Your Next Steps
Now that you have been admitted to Lincoln University, our goal is to make your transition from high school to college as smooth as possible. We host programs to get you acclimated to the university experience, from teaching you about Lincoln Pride to getting you accustomed to experiences in the classroom. When you begin your journey you will be ready and comfortable for life here at Lincoln University. Our two largest transition programs are Orientation and WOW week.
As a new student you are REQUIRED to attend orientation. During orientation you will be introduced to Lincoln University through various activities and sessions. You will also register for classes and receive all the information you will need to start your academic journey!
There are different orientations depending on your student type. Transfer and Summer School Student orientation is only one day. Orientation for first time first year students is a two days, and students are required to stay one night on campus.
When you began the registration process you will see what dates are available.
Once you have completed orientation you will be all set for the fall! All first-time freshman students are REQUIRED to attend WOW Week after they complete orientation.
Lincoln's WOW Week is an opportunity for freshman to ease the transition into college and so much more! It's a time to find out what it means to be a successful student at Lincoln University by getting acquainted with campus before upperclassmen return. During this time, students will learn how to take advantage of the academic and support services provided, as well as meet new friends and HAVE FUN while doing so. Participants of WOW Week will:
- Understand what it means to be an accountable member of the Lincoln University community
- Identify and understand important academic and campus resources, procedures, and policies to create a successful Lincoln experience
- Explore essential technology that will aid in student success
- Develop positive and influential relationships with university officials and peers
WOW Week is mandatory for all first-time freshmen. However transfer students can participate in WOW Week as well. WOW Week and Orientation are two different programs, you cannot register for WOW week until you have attended orientation.
