After accepting your offer Lincoln University will email you directly with your login information for the LUCAS portal. You will pre-enroll in courses in the portal. Upon arrival on campus you can attend a course advising session to discuss your course options. You have until the first week of lectures to make any changes to your course schedule.
Course enrollments will not be finalized until students are on campus. The preliminary course form students submit to Arcadia prior to departure does not guarantee approval or enrollment in those courses. There is an add/drop period at the beginning of each semester that allows students to make changes to course enrollments. If you make any changes it is your responsibility to inform your home institution.
If your enrollment is conditional upon entry into a specific course or courses, it is very important that you indicate these requirements at the bottom of the preliminary course form on your Arcadia Passport.
