The cost of attendance (COA) is a reasonable estimate of educational expenses associated with attending Lincoln University for the period of enrollment. It reflects a modest and adequate budget during your attendance at the University. Eligibility for financial aid is based on the standard estimated allowance and not on individual preferences, lifestyles, and spending habits. The COA budget is not the amount you owe. This is only your budget established for your attendance for the academic year or semester. The COA budget includes an allowance for tuition, fees, room, board, books & supplies, personal and transportation. Students graduating in December or attending for one semester must notify the FAO for an adjustment to the budget and financial aid award. The COA is used to determine eligibility for grant, loan, work, and scholarship assistance.
Students receiving any form of aid should note that their aid, inclusive of federal, state, institutional, and external aid, should not exceed their estimated Cost of Attendance. The University reserves the right to reduce, return, or cancel aid that is excess of a student's Cost of Attendance without prior notice. Students who receive funds in excess of the estimated Cost of Attendance in the form of a refund/credit balance check may be required to repay any funds that are to be returned or cancelled
