Return to Campus

Coronavirus and Return to Campus Information

Linfield University has had a successful fall 2020 because of our community’s uncommon resilience, creativity and drive. You wore your masks, washed your hands, adapted and learned. In the midst of it all, classes continued, social gatherings continued, the performing arts continued. We continued.

And we will continue on this spring because of our ongoing collective efforts. As with the fall, we have made some changes to the spring schedule.

Please be aware of the following changes:

  • January Term has been moved to May Term for 2021. Courses and times from the already scheduled January Term will be the same, occurring May 3 - May 27, 2021.
  • The McMinnville campus will start classes early, beginning Monday, January 18 and concluding Friday, April 30.
  • The Portland campus will start as previously scheduled at our new northeast Portland campus on Monday, February 8 and conclude on Thursday, May 20.
  • Online and Continuing Education classes will run Monday, January 18 to Friday, April 30.
  • Spring break at all campuses has been eliminated.

Remember – keeping our campuses open and healthy will take every member of the Linfield community. Please join us in being Wild for our Health and help keep Linfield University staff, faculty and students healthy this year.
