In order to receive financial aid, a student must apply every year. Applying for financial aid is not a commitment to accept the offer. Students may decline certain types of financial aid awarded, such as student loans. If a student did not apply for financial aid their first year, they may still do so in subsequent years. To apply for financial aid, and for renewal of financial aid, the following steps must be completed:
Complete the Linfield Application for Financial Aid on WebAdvisor. This form must be submitted no later than February 1, 2016. This form is required for all continuing students. It serves as a notice to the Office of Financial Aid that you are returning for the 2016-2017 school year.
All students applying for federal funds and who are U.S. Citizens or eligible noncitizens must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year. After January 1, 2016, students can go to www.fafsa.ed.gov to complete the FAFSA. We recommend that you submit the FAFSA no later than January 20, 2016 which helps Oregon residents meet state deadlines for state financial aid eligibility. Linfield College's McMinnville campus federal school code is 003198.
Please note: Students migrating to the Linfield College Portland School of Nursing should also include the Portland campus federal school code of E00614 on their FAFSA.
If you have not already completed a Consent for Release of Information Form, or would like to update who we are able to speak with, please complete this step in WebAdvisor under the FERPA Forms tab. While this form does not have a deadline, it is important we receive it, as we cannot speak with anyone about your financial aid unless you have designated them on this form.
Our office would like to remind you to check your Linfield e-mail frequently, as this is our main form of communication. If you have any questions regarding the renewal process or run into any problems filing your forms electronically, please contact our office immediately at 503-883-2225 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
New! The 2017-2018 FAFSA will be available on October 1, 2016 and will use your 2015 tax information.
