Linfield College is in the process of reaffirming its accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. A team of accreditors will visit Linfield College on October 22-24, 2008. Included in the visit will be a review of all college programs, including the Linfield College-Portland Campus/Linfield Good Samaritan School of Nursing and the college’s Division of Continuing Education.
