Linfield Online College Costs

Linfield is affordable and competitive:

  • As a not for profit, independent college we are able to offer the same affordable tuition for in-state and out-of-state students. 
  • Linfield offers financial aid, including scholarships for our online degree programs, to make sure that our programs are accessible for working adults
  • Because Linfield tuition charges are determined by the number of credits taken each semester, students are charged on a "pay-as-you-go" basis, with no down payment beyond a modest application fee.
  • In many cases, tuition charges are actually below those charged by other online programs.

At Linfield, we are very transparent about our costs. While tuition and fees are likely to increase a little each year, typically, there aren't any “new fees” added after you begin your program. Beginning with our Summer 2018 term, we have set different tuition per credit for our degree and certificate programs. We strongly encourage you to inquire about fees when comparing different programs.

Veterans: The Linfield program has been approved by the VA for eligible veterans pursuing a degree.
