Inside Linfield - Academic Advising

Academic Advising

Academic advising is an interactive process that goes beyond scheduling classes and preparing degree plans.  Advisors partner with students to set and achieve academic goals, acquire relevant information and resources, and make intentional decisions consistent with the student’s interests, goals, strengths, and degree requirements.
