Overall Rating:

Staff at Lincoln Tech South Plainfield are extremely attentive to accuracy and detail. They're very friendly and respectful. My son just became a student here at the Diesel program and he loves it! He tells me the classes are fun!. At this place you'll find nothing but friendly, sweet staff willing to assist you always. I have to say they made the registering process very easy for me and my son. School is expensive, however, don't be disappointed, they offer financial aid, scholarships, and payment plans for those that qualify. The campus is extremely clean, and the classrooms are kept well organized. My son travels from Brooklyn NY to South Plainfield everyday, 5 days a week. Would highly recommend. Happy learning!

Lincoln tech has been a great experience. The campus is big and clean. They have a lot of tools and books available for the student use. The staff is friendly and helpful specially Danielle McCray and Jasmil Rivas. The financial aid advisor is the best! She really worked hard to make sure I was informed and really worked with my necessities. The instructors are very knowledgeable. The only complaint is that the campus president is a Cowboys fan 👎🏽

This school has been such a great experience! It's completely worth it! The staff is very helpful, friendly and amazing. They are very dedicated to us - the students. When I started attending I faced transportation issues and the staff figured out a way to pick me up from home and drop me off at home after school, even though they aren't obligated to do so. They go above and beyond to help me and everyone else on campus receive a quality education, I'm eternally grateful. This is school is absolutely worth every dollar ! The Business Coordinator Hillary Solis is the most fascinating staff member I've met so far going to Lincoln Tech, She's the best without a doubt.
