Online and Continuing Education

Balancing family, work and all of life's other responsibilities does not always leave you with enough time to complete your academic goals. However, the Online and Continuing Education Program at Linfield University allows you to earn a degree in your own time from the comfort of your home.

No matter your educational background, age, or academic program, each Linfield student will have access to:

  • An admissions counselor who will help you transfer your credits from other institutions and answer questions about your program.
  • An academic adviser to help you navigate through your degree or certificate program.
  • Technical support from an experienced and helpful staff.
  • A variety of classes in our 10 degree programs, 16 certificate programs, and 6 minors.
  • A convenient schedule with classes starting in Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer.
  • Higher completion rate than the national average.
