Lincoln College

CHICAGO (April 12, 2022) - A quality education transforms lives and Chicago State University (CSU) understands how helping Lincoln College students complete their bachelor’s degree will benefit the Illinois’ economy. That is why CSU has committed to fully supporting Lincoln College students. All students in good academic standing are not only guaranteed admission but also in-state tuition, waived application fees, and transfer scholarships that will match, or lower, students’ tuition and on-campus housing costs. CSU has also brokered a teach-out agreement that allows students to fully stay on track with completing their program of study.

“Through this important time, we want to assist Lincoln College students by offering a smooth transition that will allow them to complete their goal of earning a degree,” said Zaldwaynaka (“Z”) Scott, Esq., President of Chicago State University. “As a Department of Education-designated four-year Predominantly Black Institution,  Chicago State University offers students a place to call home while also having access to one of the nation’s most dynamic cities.”

On April 14, CSU will be on the campus during Lincoln College’s Transfer Fair and will have the ability to offer students on-site admissions to CSU, a financial aid assessment, a transcript review, and degree planning. Students can learn more about their options at CSU by visiting csu.edu/lincolncollege.
