A Valuable and Affordable Education
At Lincoln Christian University, we believe in the value of our unique approach to higher education – equipping students to grow personally, academically, professionally, and spiritually.
Value is important. But so is price. Climbing the financial hill to attend university has never been steeper. While many colleges and universities have made it an annual tradition to increase tuition and fees substantially, LCU has only raised tuition once in the last few years, and decreased the tuition rate by a significant percentage in that time as well. In fact, it is actually now less expensive to attend LCU as a full-time undergraduate student than it was in 2013. Our commitment to you is that we will do our very best to keep the cost of attendance as low as possible, so you can receive a quality education and not be burdened with an oppressive amount of student loan debt after you graduate.
We are proud of the fact that LCU’s total annual tuition plus room and board price makes us one of the most affordable four-year schools in Illinois and the entire Midwest.
With a lower price than even most public and state institutions, no annual fees, and competitive financial aid packaging, students and families from all economic backgrounds can find an LCU education financially accessible.
