Transfer Admission Procedure

Linfield welcomes applications from students qualified to transfer from regionally accredited colleges and universities. Academic credit is awarded for work in courses corresponding to those offered at Linfield, and for which a grade of “C” or better has been earned. To be considered a transfer candidate, students must have successfully completed at least 12 transferable semester credits post high school graduation or receipt of GED; students who have less than 12 transferable semester credits may apply as a first-year applicant. Transfer applicants are evaluated on the same basis as first-year-students.

  1. Common Application Form
  2. Common Application Supplement
  3. Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended.
  4. One recommendation from either a college professor or a former high school teacher.
  5. A high school diploma with an official final high school transcript or an overall average GED score of 450 or better if the candidate has completed fewer than two years full-time enrollment at either a community college or a four-year college or university at the time of application.
  6. Candidates with less than two years full-time college enrollment must submit score reports from either the SAT Reasoning exam, or the ACT.
