Admission requirements for each program of Linfield are unique to that program and the types of students who pursue the variety of academic offerings. Students interested in our residential campus in McMinnville will use a different application than those applying to enter our pre-licensure nursing program in Portland, and our online programs request a different type of application.
Our residential campus enrolls about 600 new students each year, many just completing high school but 20% of new students each year are transfers from other colleges, or exchange students from other countries. Admission is open for fall and spring semesters each year.
Linfield College welcomes applications for admission to the Bachelor's degrees and the Certificates offered through the Online and Continuing Education Program. The application can be submitted online, or downloaded and mailed to the college.
This single major location offers the Bachelor of Science in Nursing for both first- and second-degree students. There are two pre-licensure program options: 1) a 15-month accelerated course of study, beginning each June, for those who have previously completed a bachelor degree in another field, and 2) a two-year traditional program, beginning each fall and spring, for any qualified student (including those with a previous degree). Applications for the online RN to BSN program for those already licensed and working as RN’s should be submitted by following the Online and Continuing Education link at the bottom of the page.
