Cost and Financial Aid for International Students
Linfield offers a limited number of partial tuition scholarships to international students. In some cases, we can also offer part-time, on-campus work opportunities. Interested students must apply for scholarship and work grants by sending in a personal letter with their application for admission.
The chart below is a breakout of fees for the 2012-2013 academic year. Please note: tuition is not charged during January Term, but rather a per credit fee of $201. Students typically take 4 or 5 credits, bringing the cost of courses to, on average, $804-1,005.
|Associated Student Body Fee||$124||$276||$28|

|Total Estimated Costs
(including personal expenses)
*Health Insurance is required for all students. International students cannot waive insurance, regardless of coverage provided by a parent, guardian or home country insurance policy or program. The cost of insurance for international students is $725 per semester.
** Figures for personal expenses and books and supplies are estimates and may vary depending upon transportation to and from campus, types of courses and books/supplies needed and other variables.
Please note, these costs are for students taking courses on the Arts and Sciences campus in McMinnville. Costs for students on the Nursing campus and through the Adult Degree Program may vary.
All international applications must also submit a Financial Statement, signed by a parent or other guarantor, accompanied by a recent bank statement. A personal letter from the parent or guarantor can substitute for the Financial Statement.
A complete list of the costs is available for review.
To streamline the payment process, Linfield College has partnered with peerTransfer. With peerTransfer, families are offered better foreign exchange rates, the opportunity (in most cases) to pay in the home currency and save money, as compared to fees charged by traditional banks. Families are also notified via email when the payment is received by Linfield.
