Online and Continuing Education OCE Academic Advising

Academic Advising Process

Helping you navigate your online education

A trusting relationship is the foundation for success when it comes to helping you meet your educational goals. We provide personalized advising support throughout your educational journey starting with an initial advising appointment upon your admission. We take time to get know you, understand your goals, talk about degree/certificate requirements and create an educational plan tailor made for you. The result is a clear plan of action so you know exactly what you need to do to achieve your personal and professional goals.

Providing ongoing support

Once a roadmap has been developed we will continue to stay in touch with you helping you evaluate progress along the way and serving as a resource for you as you navigate Linfield systems and procedures. You will hear from your advisor at key times throughout the year to keep you plan to graduation updated. 

You may also want to check in with your advisor prior to enrollment for each term, to check your progress and make any adjustments before you register for classes. You are welcome to contact your advisor at any time with other questions or concerns as well.

Keeping you on track

If you find yourself faced with challenges due to conflicting priorities we are there to offer support and help you figure out how to get back on track. We also serve as a single point of contact so you can get easily connected to the on-campus and online support services and resources needed. As you get ready to graduate, we will help ensure all requirements are met and help you understand the graduation process.

RN to BSN academic advising

The RN to BSN academic advising process is slightly different and includes a transfer to a different advisor upon starting the Nursing cohort. In addition, you will also be assigned a faculty advisor at this time. Please visit the RN to BSN degree program page for more information.
