Inside Linfield - New Students

Transfer student advising

Academic Advising supports new students transferring to Linfield from another institution. New transfer students starting at Linfield in Fall 2020 can get prepared for registration by reading the new students and transfer credit pages which offer information about the following topics:

Depending on how many transferable credits a student enters Linfield with (based on a formal transcript evaluation), new transfer students will be eligible to register for courses as early as April, after consulting with their faculty advisor about a course schedule. New transfer students on the McMinnville campus are assigned a faculty advisor in the discipline the student plans to pursue.

All new students are assigned a Registration & Orientation Leader (ROL), a peer assigned to assist new students in navigating the process of registration for courses and preparing for coming to Linfield in the fall.
