Thank you for completing the Net Price Calculator. This process is a great first step to take in understanding the financial aid process. We also encourage you to continue the conversation with us because there is a lot more to learn about admission, scholarships, and financial aid. Below is additional information if you are a high school senior starting college in the fall of 2015, and some ideas if you are not yet a senior but are starting to consider life after high school.
Even though information about Linfield College merit-based scholarships were included in the Net Price Calculator estimates, you are also welcome to explore Linfield merit-based scholarships through our Scholarship Calculator. Make sure to have unweighted current GPA as well as SAT or ACT test score information available.
Next Steps for High School Seniors:
Step 1: Apply for Admission
Applying to Linfield is easy and free. Admission requirements, timeline and application materials are online. Linfield is a member of the Common Application. Students ready to apply can go to www.commonapp.org.
Step 2: Apply for Competitive Scholarship Day
Competitive Scholarship Day is a special scholarship opportunity for students in their senior year of high school. A great opportunity to visit campus, and also win additional scholarship dollars, Competitive Scholarship Day is by invitation only and students must complete their application by December 1. Additional information regarding the timeline, exam options and agenda are available at the Competitive Scholarship Day pages.
Step 3: Submit Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Students and parents interested in need-based financial aid should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is online and is free to complete. Students applying for Fall 2015 admission should submit the FAFSA after January 1, 2015, but for priority considerations should complete the FAFSA by February 15, 2015.
