Tuition Free Day Celebration

Tuition Free Day banner

Linfield College’s annual Tuition Free Day is hosted by the Linfield Student Alumni Association (SAA) as a way to recognize alumni and donors who make gifts to support current and future students. April 17 marks 86% of the way through the school year when tuition "runs out" and donor support helps to cover the difference.

Students and the rest of the Linfield community are encouraged to attend our Tuition Free Day Celebration at 7:00 p.m. in Ice Auditorium to learn about how alumni and philanthropists keep Linfield strong and support their communities! The celebration will begin with a panel discussion on the importance of philanthropy, secrets to success after graduation, and life after Linfield.
