The Fine Print


Transfer Credits:  Free pre-admission transcript evaluations are offered by Linfield’s admission counselors to assist students in understanding how their transfer credits will be applied to their BSN. Official evaluations are completed by the Registrar’s office once the student applies for admission and submits official transcripts from all institutions attended.


International Transcripts: Applicants with international credentials will need to provide official or certified copies of academic records and a credential evaluation from a certified credentialing agency. Syllabi or course descriptions may be requested in order to determine if credits can be applied to prerequisites, general education, or electives.
