A college education is an investment in your future.

Our financial aid office is available to help you understand your options and make a Linfield education affordable.

Before enrollment

All students are considered for merit-based scholarships at the time of admission. No additional paperwork or applications are necessary – if you are eligible for Linfield scholarship awards, you’ll be the first to know. To be considered for Linfield grants and government grant and loan opportunities, you must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®).

Our school code is 003198.

After enrollment

Your student account must be paid in full each semester. You’ll receive your first bill electronically directly from Nelnet, our payment service, in July for fall start or in January for spring start. This will include tuition, room, board and other fees.

It’s our goal to renew your need-based financial aid award at the same level from year to year, but you must submit an updated FAFSA each year. To renew your scholarship, you’ll need to maintain good academic standing. If you have applied for and earned outside scholarships, it is unlikely that we will reduce your Linfield award.
