Test Deadlines

SAT Reasoning Test or ACT Scores are required as part of the application for admission for the following students:

  • Freshman applicants, including those that have earned college credit or an Associate Degree through Running Start or other dual-enrollment programs;
  • Home schooled students; and,
  • Transfer students who have completed fewer than two years (62 semester hours) of college coursework at a two- or four-year college or university.

Only one test score report is required as part of the application and no preference is given to the SAT or ACT. If more than one score report is submitted, the highest composite score (without regard to test date) will be considered by the admission committee. Linfield does not consider the writing portion of the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT, nor do we consider SAT Subject Test scores in the review process.

To be considered official, the Office of Admission must receive test scores from either the testing agency (College Board for SAT, or ACT) or the student's high school counseling office. Student score reports (mailed or printed from the web) and information included on the application is not considered official.
