Semesters and Summer Sessions

We offer undergraduate courses during two 15-week semesters and one or two six-week summer sessions each year. The academic year for financial aid is defined as 30 weeks of instruction during which time a full-time student is expected to complete 24 credit hours.

You are considered a full-time undergraduate student if you take 12 or more credits during a fall or spring semester. The standard full-time tuition is charged to all undergraduates taking between 12 and 18 credits per semester. During a summer session, six or more credits is considered a full-time course load. Check with the Office of the Bursar for complete details on tuition and the other fees.

To promote the sense of community that sets Lincoln apart, all of our major programs are on-campus and in person, though there are options for online summer sessions.
