The Good

  • Program variety
  • Job placement rate
  • Locations
  • Financial aid

Program Variety

There are a number of subjects with subsequent specialty programs offered through Lincoln Tech. Subject manner includes the following areas of study: aesthetics, automotive technology, CNC manufacturing and machining, collision repair and refinishing, computer and network support technician, cosmetology, culinary arts, dental assistant, diesel technology, certification preparation, electrical/electronics, heavy equipment, HVAC, international baking and pastry, massage therapy, medical assistant, medical assistant technology, medical coding and billing, medical office assistant, nail technology, network and security preparation, nursing (practical), nursing assistant, patient care technician, pharmacy technician, technology and skilled trades, and welding technology. Not all programs are offered at all campuses.

Job Placement Rate

A resource available to all students who study at Lincoln Tech is their career services department. This department will help students find prospective job offers and even provide them with interview tips and resume help. Among the students that complete and graduate from a Lincoln Tech program, sixty-four percent also land employment either before they graduate or shortly thereafter.


There are Lincoln Tech campus locations spread throughout the United States. While there are some planned closures, there are still a number of campuses for students to take advantage of. States that have a Lincoln Tech campus include: California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, and Texas.

Financial Aid

Paying for vocational training programs can be extremely expensive. Questions surrounding financing may be at the forefront of an incoming student's mind. Fortunately, students who qualify may be able to take advantage of federal financial assistance. Upon completing necessary paperwork and online submissions, students may be able to obtain federal grants or loans to off-set the costs of their education and even completely cover tuition and related fees. However, there are not federal work for study programs available to Lincoln Tech students.

The Bad

  • Undisclosed tuition costs
  • Loan default rate

Undisclosed Tuition Costs

An interesting point to note is the fact that tuition costs are not made public. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, each program offered through Lincoln Tech is going to differ in costs. That is because the training and time it takes to complete some programs is different than others. Second, there are additional fees incorporated into some training programs which may increase the cost of a specific program. These factors combined make it difficult to determine a range or even an average of tuition costs. Prospective students should consider conducting further research into their specific program of choice to find out how much it will cost to finance their education.

Loan Default Rate

In addition to not providing students with information regarding tuition and program costs, it is interesting to note that students appear to struggle to pay back the loans they take out to finance their education. It has been reported that 17 percent of students who take out a loan to pay for their schooling at Lincoln Tech subsequently default on their loan repayment. This does put into question what kind of employment students are securing upon graduation if they are unable to pay back the debts they owe.

The Bottom Line

Lincoln Tech offers over two dozen programs with varying specialties to satisfy the diverse interests of their student body. Upon graduation, Lincoln Tech provides assistance to students looking to secure employment in their field of study. It is not known how much each Lincoln degree will cost, as program rates and fees will vary. There is some concern about the plan to downsize educational operations (which will include the closure of multiple campuses). This does call into question the institution's stability and whether or not programs will be available for students in the future. Students in need of vocational training to advance or get started in their career of choice may find value in what Lincoln Tech has to offer.

School is a scam. Rules that are just outrageous. Can't wear hoodies when its cold in classrooms. Dinner at school is just not there. They have the same food everyday.
