Parents play an important role during a student’s time in college. They provide support, a fresh perspective and, in many cases, help the student finance his/her education. The information on this page is designed to inform parents about the advising resources available their students at Linfield.
Under federal law (FERPA), a student's post-secondary grades and academic standing may not be discussed with another party, including parents, without written consent from the student. If a consent form (available from the Registrar) is completed, grades will be mailed at the end of the semester/term. Grades are also available online through WebAdvisor, which a student can access with his/her password.
