Admission Events

The Office of Admission hosts on-campus and virtual events throughout the year for students looking to learn more about Linfield as they begin their college search or as they finalize their enrollment decision.

Explore Linfield

Explore Linfield - on-campus and online - is an opportunity for students just starting their college search to learn more about Linfield's offerings. Students (and parents or counselors, if they wish to join) will hear about academic and extracurricular offerings, as well as the admission, scholarship and financial aid process. We also offer special, topical programs that focus on a single aspect of the Linfield experience, such as the academic experience, student life or the four-year nursing pathway.

During our on-campus programs, additional opportunities to connect with members of the Linfield community will be provided through the exploration fair, other presentations and discussions, facilities and campus tours and lunch.
