2023-2024 Undergraduate Cost of Attendance Including Tuition & Fees

Direct & Indirect Costs

Lincoln Memorial University is proud to offer exciting educational opportunities at a lesser cost than many private universities. The following is a guide to the cost of attending LMU as an undergraduate student for the 2023-2024 school year.

Cost of Attendance (COA) is the estimated amount it will cost a student to go to school. The COA is comprised of different components – some of which are direct (billable) and indirect (non-billable). Examples of direct costs are tuition and fees.  Examples of indirect costs are transportation, miscellaneous personal expenses, and living expenses (if not living on campus). LMU offers several on-campus housing and food plan options. Review the options below, as direct costs may differ from the average costs used in the COA.
