Linfield College (McMinnville, Ore.) is a four-year, non-profit, coeducational liberal arts institution. In its McMinnville, Portland, and Online and Continuing Education programs, Linfield enrolls 2,650 students and offers 50 majors and three undergraduate degrees — Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
Linfield College is one of the oldest colleges in the Pacific Northwest. It traces its roots to an institution established by Baptist pioneers in 1849. The Oregon Territorial Legislature chartered the Baptist College at McMinnville in 1858, which was later named McMinnville College. The name changed again to Linfield College in 1922 in memory of a Baptist minister whose widow, Frances Ross Linfield, gave property worth more than $250,000 to the college. Six years later, Linfield was fully accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. The college is now accredited by the Northwest Commission of Colleges and Universities.
Linfield College advances a vision of learning, life, and community that promotes intellectual challenge and creativity, values both theoretical and practical knowledge, engages thoughtful dialogue in a climate of mutual respect, honors the rich texture of diverse cultures and varied ways of understanding, piques curiosity for a lifetime of inquiry, and inspires the courage to live by moral and spiritual principle and to defend freedom of conscience.
Student Body (2014-15 figures)
Linfield’s 2,500 students represent 31 states and 25 countries, with the majority of students from the western U.S. International students comprise four percent of our student body. The average age is 20 on the McMinnville campus, 26 on the Portland campus and 37 for the DCE students. On the McMinnville campus, 72% of students are federally determined to need financial aid, 32% are American students of color, 27% are Pell Grant recipients, and 20% are first-generation college students.
