Renew your Financial Aid for 2019-2020

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. To renew your 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 submit your LAFA no later than February 1, 2019. This form is required for all continuing students and notifies the Office of Financial Aid that you are returning for the 2019-2020 school year and indicates whether you will (or will not) be filing a 2019-2020 FAFSA. If you state in your LAFA that you will not be filing a 2019-2020 FAFSA, skip to Step Four.

Step Two:

File your 2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after October 1, 2018 to be considered for financial aid. All students applying for federal financial aid who are U.S. Citizens or eligible noncitizens must file a FAFSA every year. To have your FAFSA sent to Linfield College use our federal school code of 003198. Note: For students who are Oregon residents but not a 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. Submit all documents requested to the Office of Financial Aid as soon as possible. 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:

If your financial aid file is complete, our office will send you a notification to your Linfield email prior to the end of spring semester 2019 with instructions to login to WebAdvisor to accept/reject the financial aid offered to you for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Step Five (optional):

If you would like to allow a parent or guardian to speak with the Office of Financial Aid regarding your specific financial aid offers, you must complete a Consent for Release of Information Form in WebAdvisor under the FERPA Forms Tab. 

Important Information:

Our office would like to remind you to check your Linfield email frequently, as this is our main form of communication. If you have any questions regarding the renewal process, please contact our office immediately at 503-883-2225 or finaid@linfield.edu.
