Student Reviews and Ratings for Lincoln Technical Institute-Union

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

Do not go here. I graduated. Teachers will say that every review is from people that failed out or left. I now have loans for no reason. You don't learn anything here. I graduated with a 3.9 gpa and had perfect attendance. I have a bachelors degree as well. That being said there are about 2 good teachers. Students smoke weed on every single break and the teachers and staff just laugh about it. Go some where else if you truly would like to learn or some how get financial aid. Not worth full amount. Career services will help you get a job at about 13/hr. I had to find a job on my own to get paid something decent. They also only talked to me one time the entire year I was there. Not much help at all. They just want your money.

Lincoln tech is a really well run and experienced school if you want to become a technician. I’m currently in the EST program and I’m very impressed with how the classes are taught, the teachers are all practiced in the field with first hand knowledge to help and guide the new students. All you have to do is come to class and listen and after a year you should be right where you want to be. The staff are all looking out for everyone trying to find not only good jobs but ones that we can have pride in doing and continue to keep learning the trade from.
