Students walking on campus on the first day of fall 2020

Step 2: Committing

We can’t wait to welcome you as a fellow Wildcat!

We hope you’ll make a thoughtful decision based on your academic goals, the learning environment that suits you best and the community you’ll feel most comfortable joining.

To secure your place at Linfield, you’ll need to pay your matriculation (the official word for entering a college) fee of $400. With that fee submitted, you’ll have signaled your intent to enroll.

To pay your matriculation fee, log on to your Linfield Admission Portal (the same place you checked your application status).

Remember, your matriculation fee is nonrefundable after the priority deadlines (May 1 for fall first-year students, June 15 for fall transfer students). Accepting or declining an offer of financial aid does not officially indicate to Linfield your plans for enrollment. Neither does an email or phone call from a parent, counselor or friend. You’ll also want to ensure you withdraw your application at the other institutions to which you’ve been admitted. They will appreciate hearing of your plans, even if they are a bit jealous you’ll be joining us at Linfield.

While we would love to have you as part of our community, if you’ve decided Linfield isn’t the right place for you, we understand. We’d still like to hear of your plans. You can also cancel your application through our online portal.
