Eureka College Offers Matching Tuition to All Lincoln College Students
April 01, 2022
EUREKA, Ill. – Eureka College is saddened to hear of the closing of Lincoln College.
In an effort to help the Lincoln College students succeed and complete their bachelor degrees, Eureka College will be matching the net tuition cost for all Lincoln College students who choose to transfer to Eureka. In addition, any students who meet the criteria for the Eureka Promise program, will be awarded the full tuition scholarship, providing eligible students a chance to obtain the rest of their bachelor degree tuition free.
As part of the agreement, Eureka will expedite the admissions process, waive the application fee, accept Lincoln College students from all programs and, most significantly, meet out-of-pocket net tuition costs of current Lincoln College students.
Located in Eureka, Illinois, and chartered in 1855, Eureka College cultivates excellence in learning, service and leadership while providing students uniquely personalized and custom educational opportunities.
Originally founded by abolitionist members of Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Eureka College holds the unique distinction of being the first college in Illinois and only the third in the nation to admit men and women on an equal basis. The College, which is located on nearly 70 wooded acres in central Illinois, is the smallest of only 24 colleges and universities to ever award a bachelor’s degree to a future President of the United States.
