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. 
  • 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, you can be assured that there will be no “new fees” popping up after you begin your program.  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.
