Reminders about the 2013 Fall Semester

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 5th.  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 24, 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 26.  Residence halls and suburbs for continuing students will be open Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25.  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. 

Go to the Cashier Window In Melrose Hall first to get your valid Fall 2013 sticker before attempting to check into college housing.

Early Arrivals

The college hosts a number of visitors during the summer for conferences and special programs.  In order to complete campus maintenance projects and prepare the facilities for the start of the year, we ask that you respect the arrival time as posted in the contract you signed when selecting your room.  For information about early arrival for fall sports or other purposes please go to the Residence Life Website.
