Reminders About the Fall 2014 Semester

Pardon our dust, and please note temporary office locations

Two building interiors are receiving extensive renovations this summer.  The lower level of Melrose Hall is being remodeled and will become "Student Central", with six administrative offices that serve students all located on one floor.  Walker Hall first floor is being remodeled and will be the location of the Political Science department, and International Programs.  Until the offices find their permanent homes, the offices have been relocated as follows:

  • Academic Advising is temporarily housed in Malthus Hall (behind the Blaine Street apartments); after a move in September, Academic Advising will be located in Melrose Hall.
  • Career Development is temporarily housed in Malthus Hall; after a move in September, Career Development will be located in Melrose Hall.
  • IPO (International Programs Office) is now located in Walker Hall.
  • The Registrar is temporarily housed in Malthus Hall; after a move in September, the Registrar will be located in Melrose Hall.

Clearing Your Account

The Linfield College Student Accounts Office has an account clearing procedure for you to pay the billed charges for each semester.  The procedure includes specific date requirements and for the Fall Semester the clearing date is August 4.  The Student Accounts Office has mailed the paperwork necessary to complete the account clearing process.

To start the process, go to WebAdvisor and click on the "Clear Your Account" link and follow the steps indicated to complete the process.  Please be sure to accept the terms and conditions of the Linfield College Educational Services Agreement.  Also, don't forget to waive your insurance online if you have other medical insurance coverage.

Student ID Card

You need to have your student ID card in order to access your residence hall or apartment.  If you do not have your ID card when you arrive, you will need to have a new ID card produced.  On Saturday, August 23, the ID photo station will be open from 10 am - 4 pm.  On Sunday the ID photo station will be open from 10 am - 4 pm.  You will need to have valid, government-issued photo identification (driver's license, passport, military ID, etc.) in order to be issued a Linfield ID.  The ID station will be in Cozine Hall.

Housing

Moving In

Classes for Fall Semester start on Monday, August 25.  Residence halls and suburbs for continuing students will be open Saturday, August 23 and Sunday, August 24.  Keys are available from 10 am-6 pm from the Residence Life Office in Mahaffey Hall, Room 127.  HP Park residents must also go to the Residence Life Office and check in to housing.  (Your card access will be deactivated if you do not check in).  You need to have your account cleared in order to pick up your room keys or have your swipe card access activated, so please make sure you complete the account clearing process.  Go to the Residence Life Website for complete information.
