Accreditation and Recognitions

The Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) accredits Lincoln University to award Doctor’s, Master’s, Bachelor’s, and Associate Degrees and Certificates. The Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools is listed as a nationally recognized accrediting agency by the United States Department of Education and is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). While the Doctor of Business Administration degree program is approved through ACICS, the Department of Education and the Council of Higher Education Accreditation only recognizes ACICS’ scope of accreditation through the Master’s degree level. Therefore, the US Department of Education and the Council of Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) do not recognize this doctoral program. The scope of ACICS’s recognition for financial aid purposes extends through the master’s degree level only.
