Alert upgraded Advising and Registration system!  

Beginning April 4, 2022, the Lincoln University student information system, Ellucian Colleague, is updated to include the LU Self-Service Portal. The LU Self-Service Portal allows students to create an academic plan as well as view financial aid and pay balances. The LU Self-Service system replaces WebAdvisor for Fall 2022 advising and registration. WebAdvisor will not be available after Summer Sessions.


  • For Summer 2022, please register using WebAdvisor

  • For Fall 2022, please register for classes using  LU Self-Service. Contact your advisor early so you can register for the classes you need.

Veterans Students Preference

Act 46 of 2014 requires public institutions of higher education in Pennsylvania to provide veteran students, as defined in the Act, with preference in course scheduling. Non-compliance may be reported to the Pennsylvania Department of Education by submitting the Higher Education Student Complaint form found at

View our policy on how to take advantage of this opportunity.

Mandatory Registration

Continuing student registration is the period in which all currently enrolled students should register. This registration period is intended to give preference to all continuing students by matriculation and class level, ensuring that they are able to schedule classes before new students.

This date-regulated process ensures fairness to all students and provides them with the best access to our computerized registration system. Register at your earliest opportunity to get the best selection of classes and the most convenient class schedule.

For Fall Advising and Registration, follow the steps below.
