Shouldn’t there be a way for colleges to recognize the significant knowledge that adult students have acquired at other institutions of higher learning and outside of the classroom, however long ago the knowledge was gained?

In a recent release by Forbes, Linfield College was named one of the nation’s “Top Colleges.” With a small student-to-faculty ratio, 12:1, Linfield College is able to combine a caring, dedicated atmosphere with quality teaching for high student satisfaction.
In addition to focused classroom attention, whether on campus or online with Linfield’s Adult Degree Program, this small Oregon college is one of the country’s top producers of Fulbright scholars. Linfield College is also one of only 16 schools in the nation to be associated with the prestigious Kemper Scholarship Program. With such academic success, it should be no surprise that Linfield’s graduates have a high four-year graduation rate, enjoy success after graduation, and have a smaller debt load.
Linfield, which attracts students from 29 states and 24 countries, is well known for its outstanding liberal arts and sciences curriculum, as well as its professional programs. In addition to receiving the recognition by Forbes, Linfield College has been named one of the top five liberal arts schools in Oregon and Washington by The Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report.
Linfield College offers 47 majors and enrolls more than 2,600 students through three programs: a residential liberal arts and sciences program on the McMinnville campus, nursing and health science programs in Portland, and the Adult Degree Program, which supports students at eight Oregon sites and serves a virtual learning community of adult students plugged in around the globe. Linfield College, which was established in 1858, helped pioneer higher education in the Pacific Northwest.
