*Due to COVID-19 health concerns, we are allowing prospective students and families to choose how they make their campus visit. LCU is offering a virtual visit experience where guests can meet with everybody they would typically meet on a traditional campus visit, just over the phone or the computer. LCU is also offering the traditional on-campus visit, with appropriate precautions.
You can read about our academic programs, faculty, and community life on our website and in brochures, but nothing can compare to experiencing campus life for yourself. A campus visit is the best way to decide if LCU is right for you. See below for the various ways you can visit our campus. We look forward to meeting you!
We will customize your day on our main campus in Lincoln, Illinois, with an in-depth, one-on-one visit experience that fits your individual needs. Some of the things your visit can include are:
- Meet with an enrollment counselor
- Campus tour
- Meet with an LCU professor
- Undergraduate Chapel worship (Tuesday mornings only)
- Lunch with a student
- Class visit
- Meet with an athletic coach
- Overnight stay in a residence hall (individual visits may be scheduled Monday through Thursday)
- Meet with a financial aid counselor
In order to give us time to properly plan your visit schedule, please register at least two business days before you’d like to visit campus.

We’re excited to offer you the opportunity to visit one of Lincoln Christian University’s extension sites—or schedule a phone conversation! If you choose a site visit, you can explore your options with an enrollment counselor, get a tour, sit in on a class, and visit with one of our professors. Whether we meet on-site or by phone, we’ll make sure you get all your questions answered about online and on-site programs, the enrollment process, and financial aid. Just like our academic programs, we tailor your visit to fit your needs. Contact us by email or by phone (217-732-3168) and schedule your campus visit today!
