How to Apply

  1. Apply Online

    Create an account with a username and password and complete the Adult Degree Completion Program application online for admission into general education or major classes.

    In response to the financial strain the COVID-19 response has caused for many people, adult degree completion application fees and references have been waived until further notice. If previous institutions are temporarily unable to provide you official transcripts, we will review unofficial transcripts.

    First-Time Applicants Returning Applicants

    Readmission of Former Students

    The readmittance application is required for former George Fox students who are pursuing readmission to the university after an absence of more than one semester. If you withdrew during the semester immediately prior to the semester you intend to re-enroll (example: withdrew spring 2021, plan to re-enroll in fall 2021), you are not required to submit a readmit application.

  2. Request Official Electronic Transcripts

    Electronic transcripts are preferred for speed and accuracy. They must be sent directly from the institution to admissions@georgefox.edu. If an electronic option is not available, unopened official transcripts can be sent via mail to:
