    • One for students admitted for fall 2023 that will cover next steps in the admission process (matriculating, housing, etc.)
    • One for future students curious to learn more about Linfield (academic offerings, extracurricular and athletics, the application process, etc.)
  • Optional lunch in our dining hall

You may also request an individual appointment with a coach and (for students admitted fall 2023) a financial aid counselor and/or Learning Support Services staff. All appointments are subject to availability.

Individual visits

For the health and safety of the Linfield community, we continue to offer adjusted visit options.

Each day, we offer up to six individual campus tours. While on campus, students and their guests may:

Oregon Private College Week (OPCW)

July 24-28, 2023, 9-11:30 a.m. and 2-4:30 p.m.

You are invited to come ask questions and discover why an Oregon private college is right for you during OPCW! Sessions are held concurrently on 12 campuses statewide.

While visiting Linfield University, you will attend an informational session covering topics such as areas of study, clubs and activities, research and internship opportunities, scholarships and the financial aid process.

Admission counselors will address common myths about the cost of a private college education and answer questions about Linfield and/or the college search process in general. You will also receive a tour of the Linfield University McMinnville Campus.

Group visits

We offer school- and organization-led group visits for high school-aged students and older. We can accommodate up to 30 students and require one adult chaperone for every 10 students. A group visit provides you and your students an opportunity to explore the benefits of a Linfield education and experience our beautiful campus. We are able to schedule a student or admission counselor-led campus tour and presentation with an admission counselor.

To request a group visit, please email or call 503-883-2213 with at least two weeks' notice. Due to visit and staffing limitations, we may not be able to fulfill all requests.

Educational mentors

If you are a school counselor, transfer adviser, independent educational consultant or other educational mentor visiting campus on your own, please contact the Office of Admission at regarding your interest.
