Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

George Fox University’s dual-credit program exists to give students at partner high schools the opportunity to earn college credits without having to leave their high school campus. Our high school partners have collaborated with George Fox faculty to offer collegiate-level courses that will count toward a college degree.

By offering college-level courses in high school:

  • Students will be better equipped to transition into a post-secondary institution.
  • There is a significant cost and time savings for degree completion.
  • Students will be challenged to achieve a higher level of learning and critical-thinking skills.

George Fox University is accredited through the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) and is a member of the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP)

It varies for each high school. Ask your high school counselor or call the Early College Program at 503-554-2404. We will be adding high school course schedules to our website soon. Stay tuned!

If you have decided on a university, it’s important to go through the course requirements and see which courses will transfer into your general electives and which will transfer as electives. Remember that these courses are intense college-level courses. Make sure your course load is manageable.
