Program Fees

As a study abroad student, you pay standard George Fox tuition and the standard double room and board rate. You will continue to receive all of your financial aid. Due to the high cost of some programs, an additional fee is charged (see below).

Programs typically provide room and board for the semester, although several programs require that you cook your own food. In those cases, you will not pay George Fox board. The university’s charge for board is adjusted according to each program's offerings.

Additional costs may be applicable, including optional excursions, visas, etc. These fees do not include round-trip airfare. The fees do include emergency medical insurance.
