Academic Advising for New Students

New first-year and transfer students can get prepared for registration ahead of time.

At Linfield, academic advising is based on a system of shared responsibility. Prior to their first semester at Linfield, students are assigned a peer mentor and a faculty advisor who serve as guides in preparation for college success. Faculty advisors and peer mentors 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.
