Academic Advising at Linfield University fosters inclusive partnerships between students and advisors that cultivate holistic educational experiences and personal growth. Through meaningful collaborations with advisors, students make sound educational decisions that are consistent with their life goals and objectives, build a sense of responsibility, develop critical thinking, and become lifelong learners.
It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of and to meet the catalog requirements for graduation and to adhere to all other deadlines, rules, and regulations published in the Catalog, and the Student Policy Guide. Students are generally governed by the current Student Policy Guide and the catalog in effect for a program when they begin that program at Linfield University, subject to the catalog expiration policy. Students who are continuously enrolled in a program may meet the graduation requirements of any subsequent catalog published during their enrollment in that program. A student may not meet requirements from a catalog published prior to their matriculation in a program. While academic advisors or university officials assist students in interpreting policies and requirements and making plans, the final responsibility for meeting requirements and adhering to policies belongs to each student.
Linfield students are assigned a faculty and/or professional academic advisor who serves as a guide and mentor in their educational journey. The academic advising office supports all Linfield University students.
Academic advising is based on a system of shared responsibility. Students are expected to prepare for and attend advising meetings with their advisors throughout their studies at Linfield.
