COVID-19 and Admissions at George Fox

The George Fox admissions office is taking steps to protect the health of our campus community and prospective students. In accordance with the Oregon governor’s "Stay Home, Save Lives" campaign, admissions counselors are working remotely. While we cannot offer in-person visits for now, admissions counselors are still available by email, phone or video if you have any questions or need assistance.

We are still accepting applications for programs starting this summer and fall. Classes may be offered virtually until in-person classes can safely resume.

For additional information, visit the university's main COVID-19 response page.

We look forward to connecting with you!
