Academic Advising for New Students

New first-year and transfer students starting at Linfield in Fall 2020 can get prepared for registration below.

At Linfield, academic advising is based on a system of shared responsibility. Prior to their first semester at Linfield, students are assigned a peer Registration & Orientation Leader (ROL) and a faculty advisor who serve as guides and mentors in preparation for college success. Faculty advisors and ROLs work with new first-year and transfer students to develop meaningful academic plans that relate to students' academic and life goals. Additionally, the academic advising office supports all Linfield students.
