Academic Impact of a Semester Abroad

Before you apply for a semester to an off-campus study program, it’s important to see how the classes you plan to take will contribute to your degree plan. It’s essential that you contact both your advisor and the transfer specialist in the registrar's office before you apply for studying off campus.

Rest assured, studying abroad won’t affect your ability to graduate on time – provided you make proper arrangements.

Current George Fox students typically study abroad through a George Fox University program in partnership with the Center for Study Abroad. On rare occasions, you can also study abroad through another institution by taking a leave of absence for a semester from George Fox.

Details about how you can get transfer credit for your study abroad experience are available on this Transfer Credits page.

Course Evaluation Request

Complete this form to request that your study abroad course work apply to general education, major, or minor requirements.

Any course work that does not apply to general education/major/minor requirements will count as elective credit and will apply toward the 120 semester credits needed to complete your degree.
