Early Action Reminder: Linfield’s Early Action priority deadline is November 15. Information about how to apply and a link to our application and supplemental materials can be found on our website. Don’t forget to send your official high school transcript, SAT or ACT scores and the School Report. We know that many students, counselors and teachers are experiencing challenges submitting the Common Application materials online this fall. We are extending our Early Action deadline to Wednesday, November 20. All applications and supporting documents submitted online or postmarked by November 20 will be considered on-time for Early Action admission.
Special note about fall SAT & ACT test scores: If you took the November 2 SAT or October 26 ACT and plan to apply Early Action, Linfield will accept scores from these test dates that come in after the November 15 deadline. Please make sure that your scores are sent to our Office of Admission directly from the College Board or ACT.
Fall Open House: There is still time to join us for our Fall Open House on Monday, November 11 if you haven’t already registered. Registration will be available online until Friday – or you can register at te event between 8:00 – 8:30 a.m. in our Fred Meyer Lounge. You can find the details about the event on our website.
Receiving an early financial aid estimate: All Early Action applicants who are admitted will automatically be reviewed for merit scholarship eligibility. However, you can also receive an estimate of need-based financial aid by completing the FAFSA4caster. If you haven’t already done so, you can access this form online. Once you complete the FAFSA4caster, please mail or fax (503-883-2486) a copy to the Financial Aid Office by December 15. You MUST include your full name, phone number and student ID (Your ID is: 0929774) with your paperwork. (This information will not be included on what you print out, so you will have to write it legibly on the printout or type it on a separate piece of paper and attach it.)
