Summary of Academic Forms

Unless indicated, the following forms are available from and should be returned to the Registrar's Office.

Add/Drop Form: After registration, students use this form to enroll in a class until the tenth day of classes, or to withdraw from a course before the end of the third week of the semester (without notation on the academic record), or up until the tenth week (with a notation of "W”/withdrawal).

Address and Telephone Changes: Any change of address or phone (local, off-campus, home, parent(s), or billing) must be submitted on this form.  This information can also be submitted by students online through WebAdvisor.

Declaration or Change of Academic Program: This form is used to declare or change an academic major(s), minor(s) and/or to declare intent to earn the secondary education teaching licensure.  It is also used for changing advisors.  Before registering during the spring of the sophomore year (or before completing 45 credits), students must complete the Declaration of Academic Program and (when appropriate) the change of advisor section of the form.  Available in Melrose 010, completed forms should be returned to the Office of Academic Advising.

Enrollment Verification Request: Students who need their enrollment verified for an outside agency (insurance company, loan servicing agency) complete this form.  Students may also bring in a form from another agency.

Higher-than-Normal Credit Load Petition: This form must be completed by any student with a cumulative GPA below 3.5 who wishes to enroll in 17 or 18 credits for a semester.  It is also used for any student who wants to enroll for more than 18 credits (additional fees apply). This form must be completed at the time of registration.

Independent Study Petition: Independent study allows a junior or senior with a cumulative 2.75 GPA or better to explore academic areas of special interest not ordinarily provided by the existing curriculum.  Independent study is guided by a qualified member of the faculty and must have departmental approval as well as support from the Academic Support Committee.

Individual Majors: Students planning an Individually Designed Major must submit this form by the end of their sophomore year.  A cumulative 3.00 GPA is required.   See "Policies on Individual Major" in the catalog.

Leave of Absence: All students who will not be enrolled in Linfield classes for a semester or more (excluding Jan Term) must complete this form.  Requires signatures of Dean of Enrollment Services, Controller, Director of Housing, Financial Aid Officer, Food Services General Manager, Mail Services Manager, and Director of International Program (if studying abroad).  Reverse side: Address and telephone changes.
