Step Five: Register for classes
You’ll be pre-enrolled in Colloquium, a unique class with a funny-sounding name, designed to help you transition smoothly from high school to college. Throughout the academic planning you’ll be doing before and after you get to Linfield, you’ll be working with your Colloquium instructors (a faculty advisor and a current student) to select classes and make academic decisions.
Registration for Freshmen
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:
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 peer and faculty 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. 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 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.
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 will be evaluated upon enrollment at Linfield.
- A maximum of five credits can be earned for each AP exam with a score of 4 or higher.
- A score of 5 or higher on IB exams is required to receive credit.
- A maximum of 30 credits can be earned through AP or IB testing.
Registration for transfer students
- You can register for classes beginning May 1st.
- Create your CatNet ID account.
- Complete the online transfer student academic advising 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.
- Submit updated official transcripts from every college and university previously attended. Transfer credit will be granted only after the official transcripts have been received.
- Review the Orientation information carefully. Instead of Freshman Colloquium, transfer students may choose to participate in Connections, a program to help you transition to Linfield.
Students enrolled in Running Start or a similar dual-enrollment program can receive Linfield credit on a course-by-course basis. Credit will be evaluated upon enrollment.
- Academic courses higher than 100-level with a grade of “C” or better will usually transfer for some type of credit. (Math 095 will also transfer).
- Courses will be evaluated and credit calculated according to a semester/quarter-hour conversion formula to accurately reflect the amount of work that was done for a class.
Transcripts and scores
Send us your final transcripts by August 15
All admission decisions are subject to evaluation of final high school transcripts, which must be received by August 15. We may rescind our offer of admission if you fail to demonstrate successful progress.
