First-Year Student Registration
Important summer tasks
To prepare for academic life at Linfield there are a few things you need to do this summer. Please read this information carefully:
Review your Orientation packet
The Orientation packet will include:
- The Orientation and Academic Advising Guide – this is where you will learn all about orientation and how to register for classes for fall semester.
- Introductory letters from your advisors.
- Your summer common reading book – to be read before coming to campus in the fall.
Complete your Online Academic Interest Survey
Your Orientation information packet will also include a link to access the online academic interest survey. This is a very important survey that will provide information to help us help you select your courses for fall. The survey will also allow your advisor to learn about you and your interests before you come to campus.
Register for your fall classes
Your Orientation packet will contain information on how to register for courses. You will be assigned a date and time after which you can register for courses online using WebAdvisor. (You will be able to register for classes — or make changes — anytime after this assigned time.) During Fall Orientation, you will meet with your faculty advisor to review your schedule and make adjustments if necessary.
Send us your final transcript
Please ensure that your high school sends your final transcript by August 1 and that it clearly notes the date of your graduation. If you’re a high school student enrolled in college coursework, you must also submit a final college transcript. We may rescind our offer of admission if you fail to demonstrate successful progress.
Send us your AP and IB exam scores
If you’re taking Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, have the official scores sent to the Office of Admission (CEEB code: 4387). Credit is granted for AP exam scores of 4 or 5, and higher level IB exam scores of 5, 6 or 7. Students typically earn four credits per exam. A maximum of 30 credits can be earned through AP or IB testing.
Transfer student registration
- Transfer students beginning in fall can register for classes beginning May 1. Spring students can register November 15.
- Create your CatNet ID account.
- Complete the online Transfer Academic Advising Interest Form — after this is received, you will be assigned a faculty advisor. Once your faculty advisor has approved your course schedule, you can register through WebAdvisor. Details and instructions are available from Academic Advising.
- Submit updated official transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended. Transfer credit will be granted only after the official transcripts have been received.
- Review the Transfer Transitions information carefully. Transfer students may choose to participate in Connections, a program to help your transition.
- You will also be sent a copy of the common read and will need to read it before coming to campus.
Students enrolled in Running Start or a similar dual-enrollment program can receive Linfield credit on a course-by-course basis based on the following criteria:
- Standard college level (100+ level or higher, including Math 095)
- Are comparable to courses offered at Linfield
- Completed with a "C" grade or higher.
