Review the official program evaluation (sent to you from the Registrar’s Office and available on WebAdvisor approximately 7-10 days after your matriculation fee has been submitted). This document will help you determine the requirements you have fulfilled through transfer coursework – and the areas in which additional classes are needed. Refer to the instructions enclosed in the packet sent from the Registrar to read your program evaluation. Contact the Office of the Registrar at email@example.com or 503.883.2211 if you have questions about how credits transferred or if you think some of your credits have not yet been evaluated.
The program evaluation you receive from the Registrar may only show how your transfer credit has satisfied the Linfield Curriculum. To see the extent to which your transfer coursework has satisfied your major, visit WebAdvisor to run your own program evaluation in your major.

Following the above course suggestions, make a list of courses offered this fall that interest you. Highlight the specific courses that you need to take in your first semester from those that can be taken in later semesters. Create your first choice and alternative schedules using the blank Sample Course Worksheet. Use the Weekly Schedule to make sure none of your classes conflict.
Review the list of courses that you’ve identified for next semester. Do you have a good balance of different types of classes? Do you have classes that contribute to Linfield Curriculum requirements and/or satisfy requirements for your major? Does your class schedule allow for blocks of study time? Are you excited about taking these classes?
Make sure your credit load is reasonable. Remember to allow yourself time to adjust to the academic expectations of Linfield; and keep in mind the demands your extracurricular activities will impose on your schedule. Linfield students usually complete 13-16 credits per semester. Keep in mind that to be considered a full-time student you must register for at least 10 credit hours, and if you are receiving financial aid and/or a scholarship, you must register for a minimum of 12 credit hours.
Share your proposed schedule with your faculty advisor. Your advisor must approve your schedule before you’ll be able to register.
Once your faculty advisor has cleared your course schedule, follow the registration instructions to register for classes on WebAdvisor.
