Freshman Admission Requirements
Linfield College grants admission to students who are likely to grow and succeed in a personal and challenging liberal arts environment. Each applicant to the college is judged on individual merit and is evaluated on areas that commonly indicate academic potential. These include high school academic performance, writing sample, recommendations from teachers and counselors and pre-college test results. Because participation in non-academic activities is important at Linfield, the committee also considers the depth and quality of an applicant’s involvement in community and school activities.
There is no minimum GPA or SAT/ACT requirement for admission. Priority for admission, scholarships, financial aid and housing will be given to students who meet the priority application deadlines. Opportunities for enrollment of applicants not meeting the priority dates will be dependent on space availability and financial aid funding.
The best preparation for college is a solid academic foundation in high school. Linfield College strongly recommends that applicants have completed the following:
|Social Sciences||3-4 years|
|Natural Sciences||3-4 years|
|Modern Language||2-4 years|
