2014-2015 Registration Information

For the 2014-2015 school year, Lincoln will have both an early registration process and a traditional registration. Required registration forms were mailed home with report cards and can be found here if additional copies are needed.

Early Registration:

Lincoln offers an early registration process in order to allow for you to avoid the rush of 2200 students. This process has changed from the past. Now, if you choose to register early, you will NOT have to return for traditional registration. In order to participate in early registration, students must meet ALL of the following criteria:

  • Student must be present to have his/her picture taken for the student ID
  • All past obligation(s) must be paid before, or at the time of early registration (you can check this on Infinite Campus)
  • All current fees as described on a document in this packet must be paid at the time of early registration. You may pay these in person or online. (Yearbook purchases are separate and ordered online only at www.jostensyearbooks.com).
  • If you want a parking permit (11th and 12th graders only), you must bring your driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance.
  • Bring all registration documents with you to early registration.

Early Registration will be held during the following time sin the office on the main campus:

  • June 23 – June 27, 8:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. (10th – 12th graders ONLY)
  • July 7 – July 18, 8:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. (all grade levels)
