Tuition and Fees – Undergraduate
The thought of paying for higher education can be overwhelming. At Lincoln Christian University, we appreciate the sacrifices that students and families make in the pursuit of higher education. For that reason, we do our best to keep costs low and offer financial aid opportunities.
School bills are due and payable prior to the first day of classes each semester. Complete all applications and steps required in a timely manner. The first step, which can be done as early as October, is filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) here. Our school code is 001708. Talk with our Financial Aid Department about scholarships available to help make your education affordable.

*Textbook costs vary according to the course schedule of each student. LCU encourages its students to search for the best textbook prices online, buy or borrow used books, or trade with fellow students.
*Students enrolled in Restoration Week trips (required for sophomores and juniors, optional for freshman and seniors) each spring will be charged a fee based on the expected cost of that trip. Charges range from $50-$1,000 or more, depending on the trip chosen by the student.
(1) LCU has no annual fees, but first-time students must submit a $150 dorm deposit upon committing to LCU (registering for classes or signing up for a Registration Day) in order to reserve a spot in the dorms. This deposit will be refunded at the conclusion of the student’s time in the dorms if no major damage occurred to the room or its contents.
(2) The allowed federal student loan amount increases to $6,500 sophomore year and to $7,500 junior and senior year
