On Monday, July 6, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced that international students will not be able to enter or remain in the United States if the vocational schools, colleges and universities that they are studying at move to an entirely online format for the fall. Understandably, this has caused a lot of concern among our Linfield University students, faculty and staff about their classmates, students and friends.

We look forward to welcoming all our students back to the McMinnville and Portland campuses in August.
