Renew your Financial Aid for 2018-2019

We are glad you are continuing your education at Linfield. In order to receive financial aid, a student must apply every year. Applying for financial aid is not a commitment to accept the offer. Students may decline certain types of financial aid awarded, such as student loans. If a student did not apply for financial aid their first year, they may still do so in subsequent years. To apply for financial aid, and for renewal of financial aid, the following steps must be completed:

Step One:

Complete the Linfield Application for Financial Aid (LAFA) on WebAdvisor. We strongly encourage you to complete and submit your LAFA no later than February 1, 2018. This form is required for all continuing students. It serves as a notice to the Office of Financial Aid that you are returning for the 2018-2019 school year, and informs our office if you will or will not be filing a 2018-2019 FAFSA. If you notify our office on your LAFA that you will not be filing a 2018-2019 FAFSA, skip to Step Four.

Step Two:

File your 2018-2019 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after October 1, 2017 to be considered for all types of financial aid. All students applying for federal student aid funds and who are U.S. Citizens or eligible noncitizens must file a FAFSA every year. Linfield College's federal school code is 003198. Note: For students who are Oregon residents but not an U.S. Citizen or eligible noncitizen, you must file an Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA) to apply for the Oregon Opportunity Grant, the state grant program. 

Step Three:

Review your Linfield email for notification of any additional documents required to be submitted to our office. Submit all documents requested to the Office of Financial Aid timely. Financial aid forms may be found on the Financial Aid Forms page. For students selected for a process called Verification you can review the requirements on our page devoted to the Verification process and forms.

Step Four:

By May, if your financial aid file is complete, our office will send you a notification to your Linfield email to login to your WebAdvisor account to accept/reject the financial aid offered to you for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Step Five (optional):

If you would like to allow a parent, for example, to speak with the Office of Financial Aid about your financial aid you must complete a Consent for Release of Information Form in WebAdvisor under the FERPA Forms Tab.  Also, if you have already completed this form, and would like to update who we are able to speak with, please complete this step in WebAdvisor under the FERPA Forms tab.  While this form does not have a deadline, it is important we receive it, as we cannot speak with anyone about your financial aid unless you have designated them on this form.
