Tuition Costs

Linfield is affordable and competitive:

  • As a not for profit, independent college we are able to offer the same affordable tuition for in-state and out-of-state students. 
  • Because Linfield tuition charges are determined by the number of credits taken each semester, students are charged on a "pay-as-you-go" basis, with no down payment beyond a modest application fee.
  • In many cases, tuition charges are actually below those charged by other online programs.

At Linfield, we are very transparent about our costs. While tuition and fees are likely to increase a little each year, you can be assured that there will be no “new fees” popping up after you begin your program.  We strongly encourage you to inquire about fees when comparing different programs.

Veterans: The Linfield program has been approved by the VA for eligible veterans pursuing a degree.

Nursing 308 Deposit:  A non-refundable deposit of $200, applied to student’s account with the following deadlines: 

  • Fall cohort: July 1
  • Spring cohort: December 1
  • Summer cohort: April 1

Should NURS 308 reach capacity prior to the schedule deadline, you will have the option to be wait listed, with your deposit, as well as transfer into the next priority list for the following semester. Should you not submit the $200 non-refundable deposit, your registration into NURS 308 will be processed on a rolling basis and determined by the date of your registration until the course limit is reached. Additionally, admission to NURS 308 is contingent and prioritized based upon successful completion of the School of Nursing prerequisites and LC courses. Priority is given to Pre RN to BSN students who have completed all of the prerequisites and LC courses thus transitioning into NURS 308 as an RN to BSN major.
